Syeed’s film follows a man planning to escape the war and poverty surrounding his village in Kashmir until a beautiful woman researching the local dying lake appears. Nicholas Bruckman produced the project.
THR here hosts the exclusive teaser trailer.
“When watching the trailer, I want people to experience the beauty of Kashmir, despite its danger,” says Syeed. “I hope it conveys a feeling of love and hope.”
The music for the film was composed by Kashmiri American Mubashir Mohi-uh-Din of the New York band zerobridge. “He was able to create a beautiful score, featuring his guitar backed by local musicians, which was recorded in Kashmir,” says Syeed. “Like the film, the score is a meeting of the modern and the traditional.”
