Soz: A Ballad of Maladies by Tushar Madhav and Sarvnik Kaur

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. It is a glance at the collective memory of a people and the expressions of its history to understand the emerging voices of resistance and their resonance in the world’s most heavily militarised zone
