The Shepherdess and the Seven Songs

Laila aur satt geet

Rating: NC16 (Sexual Scene)

Synopsis

After Laila marries a fellow nomadic tribesman, she and the rest of their tribe migrate to mountainous plains. Their move attracts the attention of local police officers, who are in awe of Laila’s beauty. Through seven folk songs, Pushpendra Singh weaves a tale in which Laila interrogates what it means to be a woman desired by many but unable to act on desires of her own—an allegory of the political situation in Kashmir. Set against the beautiful Himalayan mountains in Kashmir and Jammu, Singh’s lyrical, sometimes playful, story is a poignant comment on life at the intersection of desire, politics and culture.
