She, of the Four Names by Meeta Vasisht

Lal Ded (14thCentury, Kashmir), was a young woman of humble origins, who went on to becoming one of the greatest living poets and mystics. Loved and revered by both Hindus and Muslims of Kashmir, her life was one of constant transgressions, challenging political dogmas and religious fundamentalism. The Film moves between the deeply personal narratives about Lal Ded by the Kashmiris to fictionalised depictions of her life.
