Letter From Your Far-Off Country

In Letter from your far off country, Sanzgiri draws lines of solidarity that emerge from lineages of political commitment in his family. The film finds its purpose in a “found” connection and epistolary exchange: a letter addressed to a “distant” relative Communist Party leader Prabhakar Sanzgiri, and a poem, Dear Shahid, by Kashmiri poet Agha Shahid Ali.
