Rabba Hun Kee Kariye” will show at


Rabba Hun Kee Kariye (Thus Departed our Neighbors) tracks a shared history of Punjab – a sub-continental culture, language and a way of life – that was torn asunder in the fateful year of 1947. It captures the documentary filmmaker’s unexpected encounter with feelings of guilt and remorse about the genocidal violence of the partition. These informal tales, almost like folklore, are strewn across the memory-scape of Punjabi countryside. This documentary invokes it in the public domain for the first time.
