AFTER PRAYERS

Directed by SIMONE MESTRONI | 61' | Italy

Hello

Synopsis

Daily life in Indian Kashmir is intertwined with separatist politics, Islam and routine violence. From traumatic memories of a guerrilla’s funeral to anti-India street-riots through a maimed muhajideen’s tale, people’s destiny seems to be shaped by hope and anger, love and grief, poetry and brutality.

ABOUT DIRECTOR

Simone Mestroni has developed visual storytelling skills during the time of his fieldwork research for his PhD in Anthropology on the ethnographic aspects of the Kashmir conflict. After Prayers was made with a Wenner-Gren Foundation postdoctoral grant.
