Special Screening: Ramchand Pakistani

Written By: Usree Bhattacharya on February 6, 2009 1 Comment

Come watch a special screening of the acclaimed film ‘Ramchand Pakistani‘! The film is derived from a true story concerning the accidental crossing of the Pakistan-Indian border during a period (June 2002) of extreme, war-like tension between the two countries by two members of a Pakistani Hindu family belonging to the ‘untouchable’ (Dalit) caste, and the extraordinary consequences of this unintended action upon the lives of a woman, a man, and their son.

There will also be a discussion regarding the formation of a ‘South Asia Graduate Students Association (SAGSA)’. The association membership will be open any graduate student interested in the history and current issues of the South Asia region.

Tentative activities would include:

Student led panel discussions
Documentary / Film screenings, followed by discussions
Social events: Dinners, Chai, and stimulating conversation

Date: February 12, 2009 (Thursday)
Time: 5:00 p.m.
Venue: 10 Stephens Hall

Agenda
5 p.m. Film Screening
7 p.m. Discussion on ‘SAGSA’

    I have connection with Mehreen’s brother I was born in Karachi, pakistan and have been looking to see if this film was to be screened in the bay area, is there any chance of it been show again, let me know the venue.

    I am relly sorry I missed a great opportunity as i would have a lot to contribute being raissed in Pakistan and seeing the recent turn of events in that part of the world as it is affecting us all.
