Documentary: Making Art In The World’s Most Militarised Region — by Journeyman Pictures
July 30, 2019
Journeyman Pictures presents an introductory documentary that collects the testimonials from a select group of Kashmiri artists who narrate the experience of producing art in and from Kashmir, the most militarized zone in the world. In the process of narration, painters, poets and contemporary artists in general describe what it is for them to live amidst military conflict while developing their respective art practices. The documentary is presented to give a very limited view of the developing Kashmiri art scene from the valley itself, with interviews from emerging and senior level artists, including interjections in verse by young resident-poet Zeeshan Jaipuri.

Lying between Pakistan and India, Jammu and Kashmir has felt like a battleground for nearly 3 decades, home to an estimated 700,000 soldiers. It is a place of tear gas and gunfire, of rape and abductions, but also of beauty. “When you face these situations, you feel compelled to act”, says poet Zeeshan Jaipuri. “You feel compelled to write.” Four artists ruminate on the place of the pen and paintbrush in a violent world.
