The Shepherdess and the Seven Songs

Laila Aur Satt Geet

India 2020 Fiction cor 96 min.

Inspired by the poetry of 14th century Kashmiri mystic Lalleshwari, and set against the backdrop of the conflict in Kashmir, the movie tells the story of the nomadic shepherdess Laila. Although she becomes Tanvir’s wife, she attracts the attention of the entire tribe, and especially of police officer Mushtaq, who is determined to conquer her. Amidst the magnificent Himalayan landscape, where the police and military strictly monitor every movement and all borders, the pair exchanges amorous repartee that spins out of control.
