Without India’s Censor Board approval, Oscar-nominated director Ashvin Kumar releases new documentary on Kashmiris’ plight online.
Yesterday, Oscar-nominated director Ashvin Kumar released his latest film, Inshallah, Kashmir: Living Terror, online after his two previous films, Inshallah, Football and Dazed In Doon, were banned by India’s Censor Board.
The new documentary, according to Kumar, illustrates Kashmiris recounting “how their freedom is conceded and replaced by fear and institutionalized oppression… The film contains heart-wrenching stories of the effects of brutality and terror by Indian armed forces and militants alike.”
The documentary is culled from football filmed during the making of Inshallah, Football. See the full movie below:
