This courageous and moving award-winning film on the Partition of India evokes both painful memories and raises powerful issues which continue to trouble the sub-continent. Lyrically shot on both sides of the Indo-Pak border, with a strong local ethos communicated through the music, the language and the people--the film should be watched both by those who care about the legacy of the Partition as well those trying to understand the complexities of fighting wars in those lands.
Born in Patiala, India and raised in the United States, Sarah Singh is a descendant from one of India’s royal families. She has held solo and group exhibits of her fine art both in India and the US. Much of the work is in private collections. The film has screened from Santa Barbara to Singapore. Her writing about the process of making this film has been published in Hindustan Times, one of India’s leading newspapers, as well as in Film and Festivals Magazine in the UK.
Room is located on the basement level of Haines Hall to the lefthand side of the staircase.
