About the project

Kashmir - The Valley of Broken Dreams is a 90 minute long documentary that focuses on the human rights violations and the current political situation in Kashmir.



Kashmir had a different reality all together

From the outside, Kashmir looks so serene, so calm, so peaceful. But when you have met people like Insha Mushtaq, a beautiful little kid who was shot by the army when she was looking outside the window one morning. Or rape victims who were assaulted and thrown on a dry river bed, struggling to get justice because the army and court claimed it as a "drowning case". Only then will you know that there is more to Kashmir than what meets the eye.

The first time I became fully aware about the human rights violations was when I saw a report from a human rights organization called 'Amnesty about the use of pellet guns in Kashmir".

From my research I realized how little we as Indians knew about this conflict that's been going on since the last 70 years. I felt that its about time we started speaking out loud about these issues and extend as much help to these victims as we can.



Who has been featured in this documentary?

We have interviewed prominent politicians/public figures like Sajad Ghani Lone, Usman Majid, Waheed Para, Mirwaiz and Shakeel Bakshi. 



Apart from that, we have featured famous Militants like Burhan Wani's father (face of 2016 unrest), Naseer Pandith's father (cop turned militant), Zubair turarry's father (victim turned militant), Sajad's Father (PSA victim turned militant) and even a 14 year old  school kid turned into militant's father etc.

Even human rights activists like Khurram Pervez, APDP- Parveens Ahanger, Kadir Sahab, Pervez Imroz, Basit are a part of this project.



The things we have captured will shock and baffle you



This documentary gives a voice to the voiceless and shows many lives and stories that must be shared.

When one sees a man with no legs or arms, or a border village called the ‘village of widows’ one can truly imagine the plight of these people, they have no where left to go and no one there to hear them, we want their story to be brought to light. We want perceptions to change, for our society to become a more humane one, and for the lives of these people to change so that they can have a future.

Why crowdfunding?

I have invested all my savings from many years into this documentary. At this stage, we have completed the shoot and are the only thing that's stopping us from sharing these stories with the world is the lack of funds!

This is not fiction, it is the lives of people that we have captured. They are waiting to be heard, waiting for their stories to be brought to light. I cannot let these families down.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 250000 in sound mixing, sound design and music (original soundtrack)

Rs. 50000 in color correction

Rs. 100000 in voice over and studio

Rs. 75000 in Editing

Rs. 25000 in Subtitling

Rs. 50000 in Administration

Rs. 150000 in Promotion


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

The challenges associated were majorly the risks that we took in the shoot, in going into protests and border areas which made us risk our lives to shoot these documentary.

Why should you believe me and why should you fund this project?

We really think that cinema has the power to change perceptions and bring massive changes. It moves us, we emote with it, because as human beings, we all can relate to these people.
Personally, I have risked my life and put every bit of blood and sweat to get the documentary this far. But together, I think we can make the entire nation sit up and listen to these stories.

More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.

Hi Prerana, wishing you best of luck for this project... I feel it's the need of the hour to find and face the truth about Kashmir and somehow stop the bloodshed happening!
