Watch filmmaker Jessica Sadana's short "Haal Faqeeran Da" based on the legendary Punjabi poet Shiv Batalvi as she blurs the line between documentary and fiction. Shot a few years ago, when she was pursuing filmmaking at FTII, the short reimagines an exploration of Batalvi's poem to explore the themes of journey, life and romance. Batalvi's message is a reflection of contemporary times as he always questioned the very idea of home. A byproduct of partition, his poem reveals the pangs of a forlorn lover separated by destiny, much in the reflections of those seeking love in the times of social-distancing. Tune in! . .
