ICAN Film Series: The Sky Below Screening and discussion with filmmaker Sarah Singh

The Sky Below 
An award-winning documentary, by filmmaker Sarah Singh on Pakistan and India vis a vis 1947 Partition of Indian Subcontinent. Featuring voices from both sides of the border; while exploring ancient and historic sites–along with music–from Kutch to Kashmir and Karachi to the Khyber Pass. The events in Pakistan since the middle of August make the timing of this event particularly poignant. 

The Sky Below has had premieres in Thessaoloniki, New York, Los Angeles, Mumbai, New Delhi, Kathmandu, San Francisco, Athens/ OH, Montana, Karachi, Lahore, and Santa Barbara where it has also been nominated for the 2008 Social Justice Award for Documentary Film. 

The Sky Below has screened at the Rubin Museum in Manhattan with SAIFF, in Bombay with the Asia Society, in New Delhi at the India Intl Centre, and in Kathmandu at Film South Asia…where it won the BEST FILM DEBUT award. Screenings have also happened in Bangalore, Chandigarh, Patiala, Calcutta, and Amritsar. 

Sarah will screen her 75 minute film and will be available for discussion immediately afterwards.
