Silent Waters [Region 2]

Hurry - Only 2 left in stock!
This debut feature by Pakistani filmmaker Sabiha Sumar offers a rare perspective of the polituical evolution of Pakistan, the advent of fundamentalism and the fragile rights of ordinary women. In the hot summer of 1979, widow Ayesha (Kirron Kher) lives with her 18-year-old son Saleem (Aamir Malik) in the Punjabi village of Charkhi near the Indian border, still haunted by the horrors of the Partition. When General Zia comes to power, and two strangers arrive in the village from Lahore preaching revolutionary Islamic values, Saleem and the other young men in the village become caught up in an Islamic fervour that intensifies when Sikh pilgrims arrive from India to worship at the local shrine. Tensions escalate into violence - and the quiet, harmonious lives of Ayesha and her fellow villagers are changed forever.
