Border Border Revisited

A short documentary on India Pakistan friendship in an era of hostility. 15 years ago children from India and Pakistan collaborated on a theatre performance, focusing on peace between the two nuclear armed neighbors. I was one of the children. Many years on, the bonds we made with our friends across the border are as strong as ever. I decide to visit the border, and revisit those old memories,comparing the ridiculous border ceremony to the border we created on stage. Indeed their game is one of violence and hate, ours is of peace and friendship.
