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.

Set in the late 1970s, Khamosh Pani follows the lives of a widowed mother and her young son as their village in Punjab, Pakistan is coming under radical influence. (Pakistan, 2003, Dir. Sabiha Sumar, 99 min.)

In conjunction with the exhibition Zarina: Paper Like Skin.
