Feature documentary — brilliantly shot by Oscar-winning cinematographer Ross Kaufman — exploring ethnicity, religion, and friendship in divided Kashmir.
Elements of meditative peace and natural beauty are set against deep-rooted human tensions in a diary-style documentary demanding a score that is at times unsettling, at others liberating . . . and David Robbins (The Day My God Died and Revenge of the Electric Car) strikes a delicate balance. From his bedrock of billowing electronica, Robbins creates an edgy ambience — this is haunting music to tread lightly by, often transcendent, drawing occasionally on the warmer textures of finger bells and acoustic guitar.
