A disputed territory between India and Pakistan for over fifty years, Kashmir was once a paradise on earth, but is now scarred by extremist violence and a power struggle between India and Pakistan that could trigger nuclear war. Shot by Academy Award–winning filmmaker Ross Kauffman (Born into Brothels) and edited by Billy McMillin (Iraq in Fragments), Project Kashmir follows two friends as they journey through the beautiful but battle-scarred country, traveling across a saffron-and-snow-dotted landscape filled with constant reminders of conflict: paramilitary troops sporting AK-47s, trucks gutted by roadside bombs, and abandoned homes crumbling into the earth. A critical hit at DocuWeek and the 2008 Amsterdam International Documentary Film Festival, Project Kashmir portrays not only the tragedy of human conflict and suffering, but the power of courage and friendship, even in the face of war.
