Letter From Your Far-Off Country

Letter From Your Far-Off Country_2.jpg

Using hand-processed 16mm film, direct animation techniques, and digital renderings of Kashmir’s mountains, Suneil Sanzgiri’s personal film explores lineages of political commitment and diasporic creativity. A poem by Agha Shahid Ali, interviews with the filmmaker’s father, and a letter addressed to Communist Party leader Prabhakar Sanzgiri (the filmmaker’s distant relative), converge to uncover a delicate solidarity across generations.

Letter From Your Far-Off Country will be followed by a live online Q&A with Suneil Sanzgiri which will be live-streamed from the cinema to Selects.
