SOC Films has released their third short film from their Partition series, HOME1947.
Titled Zameen, this is the story of a refugee, who with one foot in the world of his father and another in the world of his mother, found his home when he left a part of himself behind.
The clips are deeply personal exploration of the lives and stories of the millions that were displaced in 1947 during the creation of two new independent states, India and Pakistan; SOC Films plans to release 7 short films which recreate the long-lost sights and sounds of what millions once called home and explores this world not through the words of historians and politicians, but through the eyes of those who lived through it.
The series was first premiered as part of the HOME1947 Exhibition at the Manchester International Festival in the UK followed by exhibitions in Mumbai [India], Lahore and Karachi. HOME1947 has been co-commissioned by the British Council in Pakistan in collaboration with the Manchester International Festival and Super Slow Way.
