Our take

Art, dissent, and trauma intertwine in this documentary to create a thought-provoking film on Kashmir. Exploring the significance of art as a source of catharsis, Raqs-e-Inquilab offers a profound insight into the lives of children growing up in one of the most militarised regions in the world.
