Kashmir [electronic resource]: Freedom's Thirst

It's India's independence day and the tricolor flag has been hoisted in Kashmir. But the national anthem plays out to empty streets and a sullen silence, because residents here remember when this village was a battleground in the fight for freedom from India. Bodies are still being found in the woods almost two decades later, and the psychological scars run deep. Contrasting its tourist appeal with an overview of its bloody territory disputes, this documentary gives voice to Kashmir's determination to be free. Viewers are transported to the region's remote valleys, now patrolled by foreign security forces, and meet fervent supporters of "azadi" - independence from India.
