Letter From Your Far-off Country

With one foot in the United States and the other in Kashmir, the film draws a line between the Kashmir-American poet Agha Shahid Ali, interviews with the director’s father and a letter to the leader of the Communist Party, Prabhakar Sanzgiri – also a relative.

Suneil Sanzgiri brings to life the sounds and images of the collective memory that compose the past and present of India’s political movements. With a wide array of visual mediums, from digital imagery to archive footage, we’re taken on a journey surrounded by a letter addressed to Prabhakar Sanzgiri, a distant relative of the filmmaker and former leader of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) in Maharashtra.
