A Thin Wall - Screening & Conversation with Director Mara Ahmed

category dublin | arts and media | event notice author Monday April 04, 2016 22:56author by 1 of Indymedia Report this post to the editors

A THIN WALL is a documentary about memory, history and the possibility of reconciliation. It focuses on the Partition of India in 1947, but derives lessons that remain urgently relevant today. Shot on both sides of the border, in India and Pakistan, A THIN WALL is a personal take on Partition rooted in stories passed down from one generation to another.

It is written and directed by Mara Ahmed and co-produced by Surbhi Dewan. Both filmmakers are descendants of families torn apart by Partition. The film is also a work of art infusedscreenshot4 with original animation, music and literary writing.

“Mara Ahmed’s A THIN WALL is akin to a beautiful and powerful book of essays: many voices sharing poetic, personal, and political stories and viewpoints, woven together to convey a universal aching. It is a textural and tangible journey that captures a profound sense of loss for more than one generation. May we all embrace the lessons this film has to offer.“

The film will be followed a conversation with the director Mara Ahmed, Cllr. Micheal MacDonncha and Betty Purcell.
