Film: Had - Anhad
A lively, dramatic film that will move you to faith, hope and tenderness in a time of intolerance. The film takes us on a journey through Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Karachi as we listen to folk musicians give us mesmerizing renditions of Kabir bhajans and dohas. The film is focused on Kabir, the 15th century mystic poet and saint whose poetry renders a different Ram from contemporary invocations of the Hindu God Ram and challenges bigotry and prejudices on both sides of India's border.
The event will commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the pogroms in which over 2,000 muslims were killed in India.
A donation of $5 to $10 is requested but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. The proceeds will be sent to Nyayagrah in India, which works on justice for the victims.
