Liquid Borders (Canadian Premiere) + H2O (North American Premiere)
Liquid Borders: (IND;2015) (38 minutes)
The documentary film finds its beginning, born out of the need to explore existing geographical & political boundaries of India, juxtaposed with, human, emotional & spiritual bridges. Geographically speaking, India is a peninsula. Three sides are flanked by water. Specifically the East, West & South. Incidentally, the North too, is serrated by mighty rivers. This makes the boundaries of India fluid, inclusive & accessible to our neighbours. The same adjectives interpreted in the political jargon means, menace of porosity, infiltration & threat to security. The magnitude and the irony of this dichotomy promote the need to address this subject as a film.
In a sometimes dark and hopeless world, we need stories reminding us of the constructive options that are always present.
The film was created to engage, enthuse, and envision a new-found look at liquid borders.
