Film Screening: 'Sulh-e-Kul'
7 January 2015
New Delhi based filmmaker, and founder of One Duniya Productions, Zorawar Shukla will screen his second documentary ‘Sulh-e-Kul’ on 8 January, 2015.
The film explores the allure surrounding Ajmer’s Dargah Sharif. The most important Muslim site of pilgrimage in South Asia, the location hosts the tomb of the venerated Sufi Saint Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (Patron of the Poor) as a shrine. ‘Sulh-e-Kul’ examines the philosophies and teachings of Gharib Nawaz and how his legacy still attracts millions of individuals, regardless of religion, caste or colour, to his shrine every year.
Zorawer Shukla’s first film ‘A Prayer for Aliyah’ about an alleged Lost Tribe of Israel in the North East of India was well received and screened internationally. He is also known as a stage entertainer with reggae collective Reggae Rajahs, performing frequently at music venues and festivals throughout India, Europe and (recently) South America.
‘Sulh-e-Kul’ recently won the Best Musical Documentary Award at the International Film Festival in Fiji. The screening will take place at 6.30pm in the auditorium of the India International Centre, located at 40 Max Mueller Marg in Delhi.
