THE SKY BELOW
IS IN MANY UNIVERSITIES AROUND THE WORLD
AND WAS CREATED WITH STUDENTS IN MIND.

This courageous and moving award-winning film on the Partition of India evokes both painful memories and raises powerful issues which continue to trouble the sub-continent. Lyrically shot on both sides of the Indo-Pak border, with a strong local ethos communicated through the music, the language and the people–the film should be watched both by those who care about the legacy of the Partition as well those trying to understand the complexities of fighting wars in those lands.

SARAH IS AVAILABLE To screen the sky below, followed by a director’s discussion
“Forget the glitzy Slumdog Millionaire, The Sky Below is a sensitive informed treatment of a much greater event:the fragmentation of India and the creation of Pakistan. Told through the gripping life-histories of both Indians and Pakistanis, it is a must-watch for anyone interested in acquiring deep knowledge of this quarter of humankind.”—  Stephen Cohen,  Sr. Fellow, Brookings Institution / author of “The Idea of Pakistan”
“…intimate and epic, both. A strange and wondrous type of alchemy”
Dominique Nahas, Independent Art Critic and Curator
“…a disquieting and informing film, without a sense of bias or sensationalism”
Koan J Baysa, Independent Curator
The Sky Below takes a hard and balanced look at the partition of the Asian subcontinent. Singh’s visually stunning piece is critical viewing for those seeking to better understand events in the region today.” — Noel Lateef, President and CEO, Foreign Policy Association
“A powerful examination of a struggle that has become more relevant in the aftermath of September 11—with the conflict over Kashmir and the possibility of nuclear war—but remains one that most Westerners still know little about.”—Philip Chung, ASIAN WEEK
“An outstanding film made with utter sincerity and courage.”—Deepa Pant, THE ARAB TIMES
