Senain Kheshgi and Geeta V. Patel, directors of "Project Kashmir," explore the conflict in one of the most beautiful and dangerous places on earth. They’re joined by Aarti Tikoo Singh, a journalist who worked in Jammu and Kashmir for seven years with The Times of India whose family was forced to leave Kashmir in the 1990s.
Senain Kheshgi and Geeta V. Patel are two American friends from opposite sides of the divide in Kashmir—one is Pakistani Muslim and the other Indian Hindu. Their film looks at how countries and communities deeply divided by conflict can begin making peace. "Project Kashmir" premieres on the PBS series Independent Lens on Tuesday, May 18, at 10:00 pm.
