This evening of contemporary South Asian film shorts about freedom, desire and resistance includes documentary and narrative fiction and is curated by Bobby Tiwana. Followed by a post-screening discussion with industry contributors.

Films include the critical documentary Qandeel about Pakistani model, actress and social media celebrity Qandeel Baloch; We Are Fire about Champa Pal’s resistance to an entrenched cultural system in Uttar Pradesh by Oscar-winning director Orlando von Einsiedel; and the indomitable spirit of woman in War-ia.

When I see her small face
Her bright eyes look up at me
How can I bring myself to…
From east to west
Village to city
Fires continue to rage
You stand there
Rock in hand
