Kashmir Into Murky Waters

Valley’s top learning centre, Kashmir University shall host screening of a feature length documentary film – Kashmir: Into the Murky Waters – on 13th June, 2015. The event begins at 2:30 PM in the Convocation Complex of the varsity.

Kashmir: Into the Murky Waters can be used as a tool to generate awareness and build momentum for the Projects to break the natural disaster cycle,” Tarique Bhat, the film producer said.

With engineers, scientists and meteorologists explaining why these floods became such a lethal event eyewitness accounts, actual footage and graphic recreations, this documentary provides a detailed understanding of how and why of the natural disaster, a statement issued by Associated Media – the film producing company said Tuesday evening.

“Reading about these in books and through the media does not really have much of an effect upon us. Thus, we become complacent, don’t want to think about it, and go on with our lives,” Bhat asserted. “In Kashmir, our ecological crisis will get worsened as each passing day goes by, and this documentary film will tell you why.”

Wajahat Iqbal, the film Director said that the purpose of screening the film at Kashmir University aims at targeting students, faculty, specialists, policy makers, flood victims and general public.

“University is amalgam of a society, so we thought it beneficial to screen the film in KU,” he said.

“The Documentary will touch your emotions as impoverished citizens, overwhelmed officials and frustrated observers try to grapple with a devastating disaster” said the filmmakers, adding, “it provides a multi-perspective view of a tumultuous period as seen through the eyes – and reflected in the hearts and minds after the disaster seems over.”

They further said, “Kashmir: Into the Murky Waters shall empower the people to foster a conversation about our environment while also providing meaningful service that all people can connect with in our local community, so sponsorships are essential to the success of an event of this kind.”

The film screen shall be followed a ‘question and answer session’ while film makers will explain the journey of this film making.

The statement further said that the ‘Screening Objectives’ are:

  • Scholarly/academics reach out on the entire interrelated systems of nature including our water, land, and air;
  • connect with the local communities;
  • Environmental Awareness.
