Khoon Diy Baarav
(Blood Leaves its Trail)
Kashmiri Film with English subtitles (93 mins)
The film Khoon Diy Baarav enters the vexed political scenario in Kashmir through the lives of families of the victims of enforced disappearances. The film is a non-sequential account of personal narratives and reminiscences ruptured by violence, undermined by erasure and over-ridden by official documents that challenge truth. Made over nine years, it explores memory as a mode of resistance, constantly confronting and morphing from the personal to political, individual to collective. It looks at the ways in which those affected by violence have no choice but to remember.
