Unravelling

Synopsis

Unravelling is the result of a unique film-making process.

Internationally acclaimed Nitin Sawhney composed a new score in response to an original inter-generational poetic dialogue in Urdu between Sawarn Singh, a WWII Indian soldier who fought for the British in Burma, the Middle East and Africa and his grandson, Kuldip Powar. Working with this haunting score Powar directed an evocative and searching film.
