Article 370: Mariyam Nafees Starrer Short Film On Kashmir Released
The story depicts the real situation in occupied Kashmir
Ibrahim Baloch - a Pakistani filmmaker and director has made a short film titled as ‘Article 370’ on the lock down situation brought up by the Indian forces in occupied Kashmir.
The 20-minutes short film depicts a series of heart-wrenching events that happened specifically last year in Kashmir. Viewers can catch-up with the film on digital platform C Prime on YouTube.
The director said in an interview, “I started following the situation in Kashmir after India announced its decision and realized that it was primarily debated from a political perspective.” He added, “I was more interested in the human side of the issue. So after doing some research, I came across stories of Kashmiri women in Srinagar who gave birth during the lockdown imposed by the Indian administration.”
Giving the background about Article 370 which was provided to give people the freedom to make their own laws and constitution or a separate flag but last year India revoked the provision. From there Baloch got an idea on working for muslim-majority areas which are unlawfully under Indian jurisdiction.
The short film is been shot in that part of Kashmir which is under Pakistan's administration and is called Azad Kashmir. The story revolves around a Kashmiri woman, Gul-e-Rana. The role is essayed by the famed actress Mariyam Nafees who has worked in many dramas earlier. She believes the emotional tale will touch the viewer’s hearts as it is the reality.
