Synopsis: MC Kash is a 22-year-old rapper based in Srinagar, Kashmir. I resolved to myself to meet him as soon as I first heard his work. When we met two weeks later, I asked him to interview those affected by the Indian occupation. In reversing the role of author, he owned the narrative, giving me full access in turn. One woman in particular – the founder of the Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons, Parvina Ahangar – moved him profoundly. The title of the film takes its name from a song he recorded over the course of production, inspired by their meeting. Take It In Blood focuses on the two of them getting to know each other via music and a shared journey of coming to grips with the reality of living in Indian occupied Kashmir, but through Roushan’s eyes, intellect, and voice.
