When Udi Aloni comes to New York to discuss his new book What Does a Jew Want? On Binationalism and Other Specters he will also be screening and talking about two of his films, Local Angel: Theological Political Fragments and Kashmir: Journey to Freedom, which tells the story of a new generation of Kashmiri Muslims who, in one of the world’s most beautiful and dangerous places, began a nonviolent resistance struggle to change the destiny of their nation.
Aloni’s interest in Kashmir as a stateless region has parallels with his longtime interest and work regarding the Palestine-Israel conflict. The following is a trailer for Kashmir: Journey to Freedom, which will be screened at Columbia on Monday, October 10 at 6:30. The screenings will be followed by a Q-and-A with Udi Aloni.
