Documentary Film, 15 minutes, 2011
At the turn of the 20th century, Sana Bilgrami’s great-grandfather travelled to Edinburgh from India to study medicine. A hundred years later, coincidentally living in Edinburgh herself, the filmmaker pieces together fragments of memory and archive to invoke a forgotten story of love and sorrow.
Showing until October 2012 at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, in the ‘Migration Stories: Pakistan’ exhibition.
