Musa Syeed’s debut feature Valley of Saints will screen as part of the world narrative competition program at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The drama will have its world premiere Monday, Jan. 23, at 6 p.m. at the Yarrow Hotel Theatre.
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.”
