Join us at T2F for a screening of the film, ‘In Search of Meluhha’, the untold story of the Indus Valley Civilization as seen through the eyes of its inheritors.
In Search of Meluhha frames the Indus Valley civilization within the current context of South Asia. New research has shown that the Indus civilization existed at a ‘Goldilocks moment’. With the thawing of tensions between India and Pakistan, the film presents a view of pre-history irrespective of nationalist or religious identities. In Search of Meluhha is narrated by Akbar Kurtha, a British-Indian actor whose credentials include Syrianna (2005) and My Son the Fanatic (1997). The documentary has screened at the Jaipur Film Festival in India, the Archaeological Film Festival in Oregon and the Indus Day Festival in San Francisco.
The screening will be followed by a Q/A session with the filmmakers.
“A captivating approach to ancient Indus culture through the lives of the people who still live in its rich shadows. Something only an original documentary film in the hands of an artist can do.” – Omar Khan, Scholar and Founder of harappa.com
