Valley of Saints (2012) Trailer
Set on the beautiful Dal Lake in strife-torn Kashmir, the acclaimed Valley of Saints is an unlikely love story that raises important environmental issues. Gulzar is a working-class boatman who wants nothing more than to escape the violence and lack of opportunity. His carefully planned efforts to leave the region with his best friend Afzal are foiled by yet another curfew, and Gulzar is forced to remain. His humdrum existence is interrupted by the arrival of Asifa, a beautiful scientist who is researching the water quality of the Dal Lake. Gulzar ferries Asifa around as she makes ominous discoveries about the pollution levels - should the problem go unchecked it could lead to the end of a way of life. Winner of the World Cinema Audience Award (Dramatic) and co-winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Award at the Sundance Film Festival.
