A Journey through River Vitasta


This is the first film shot on both sides of the Line of Control in Kashmir. It aims to bring to light the human faces of a conflict that has displaced millions.

A Journey Through River Vitasta is the first film shot on both sides of the Line of Control in Kashmir. Supported by peace-building NGO Conciliation Resources, filmmakers Mohammad Urfi, from the Pakistani side, and Pawan Bali, from the Indian side, aim to bring a human dimension to a conflict that has displaced millions. The film represents a creative approach towards creating opportunities for dialogue within communities and across divides, giving a glimpse into the lives of people affected by conflict

Making the film was a significant success in itself as filmmakers Urfi and Bali were not able to meet in their home regions. Conciliation Resources supports people at the heart of conflicts who are striving to find solutions. They work with them to deepen collective understandings of conflicts, bring together divided communities and create opportunities for them to resolve their differences peacefully.

Directors: Mohammad Urfi and Pawan Bali
