Cinema House | Borders | Maagh (The Winter Within) by Aamir Bashir
In the city of Srinagar, Nargis searches for her missing husband, Manzoor, until she is forced to hopelessly return to her village home. With a little help from a local man Yaseen, she silently toils away on an exquisite weave. But the quiet of the Kashmiri winter is like the silence of the graveyard, waiting to be shredded by what lies buried within.
Join us for the screening of this visually evocative film about the silence resilience of a woman with a dwindling hope for her future. The screening of Maagh, directed by Aamir Bashir will be followed by a post-screening conversation with the film team.
