Khamoshi Pani (2003)

Directed by
Sabiha Sumar

Sensitive and courageous film examining the events of 1947, when the Indian sub-continent was partitioned into India and Pakistan, centred on the story of a Sikh woman, forced at partition to become a Muslim and renamed Ayesha. By 1979, Ayesha is a middle-aged widow living with her teenage son Saleem in a village near the Indian border. When President General Zia-ul-Haq comes to power, Pakistan's rule is taken over by Islamic law and Ayesha's village falls into the grip of fundamentalists. Helpless, she watches her son being swept away by militant religious fervour. Tensions escalate when Sikh pilgrims from India visit the village, forcing Ayesha to confront her tragic past.
