Soz: A Ballad of Maladies
India | 2016 | Korean | 85min | DCP | Color | Documentary | Hip-hop, Rock

PROGRAM NOTE

Of folk, rock and hip-hop, the film is a portrait of different cultural practitioners whose work engages with the political upheavals and its social costs in contemporary Kashmir, the world’s most heavily militarised zone. In a journey through the metamorphoses of Kashmir’s traditional art practices into its contemporary arts of resistance, the film unfolds a transformed cultural fabric of the valley, which departs from the notion of Kashmir as a ‘paradise’.
