Films Selected by Zarina

Zarina’s work has its roots in abstraction, but it is informed by a profound sociopolitical awareness. The artist has selected two extraordinary movies that evoke the realities of post partition India and Pakistan.

In Garam Hawa (Scorching Winds), a Muslim businessman and his family struggle for their rights in post partition India. (India, 1974, Dir. M. S. Sathyu, 146 min.)

In conjunction with the exhibition Zarina: Paper Like Skin.
