Had-Anhad, by Shabnam Virmani, is a lively, dramatic film that will move you to faith, hope, and tenderness in this time of crisis and emergency. The film is focused on Kabir, the 15th century mystic poet of north India who defied the boundaries between Hindu and Muslim. He had a Muslim name and upbringing, but his poetry repeatedly invokes the widely revered Hindu name for God - Ram.

Who is Kabir's Ram? Kabir renders a different Ram from contemporary invocations of the Hindu God Ram, and a South Asia different from that portrayed in contemporary politics. This film journeys through song and poem into the politics of religion, and finds a myriad answers on both sides of the hostile border between India and Pakistan. Join us on a journey through Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Karachi as we listen to folk musicians give us mesmerizing renditions of Kabir bhajans and dohas. (In Hindi & Urdu with English Subtitles: 103 min.)
