When I see her small face
Her bright eyes look up at me
How can I bring myself to…
From east to west
Village to city
Fires continue to rage
You stand there
Rock in hand

Contemporary South Asian film shorts about freedom, desire and resistance.

Read about Bobby's film choices in his blog post here.
Films include the critical documentary Qandeel about Pakistani model, actress and social media celebrity Qandeel Baloch; We Are Fire about Champa Pal’s resistance to an entrenched cultural system in Uttar Pradesh by Oscar-winning director Orlando von Einsiedel; and the indomitable spirit of woman in War-ia.

The films will be followed by a post-screen discussion with filmmakers Sandhya Suri and Riffy Ahmed facilitated by Bobby Tiwana.

Running time: 120-140 minutes

Curated by Bobby Tiwana with GemArts, and presented with BALTIC.
