Wagah
Year:  2009
Running Time:  13 minutes
Country:  India/Pakistan/Germany
Language:  Hindi/Urdu Farsi
Genre:  Documentary
Director:  Supriyo Sen

Description:
  Each year the only border crossing between India and Pakistan on a 3000km stretch becomes the sight of an extraordinary event. Thousands of people gather to witness the ritual closing of the border, after which the masses get as close as possible to the gate to greet their former neighbors.

This “festival“ is therefore on the one hand a celebration of the partition, but on the other hand also the only connecting element. What do the terms separation, home and proximity mean to the people on both sides?
