Join us for a screening of “Valley of Saints,” winner of the 2012 Alfred P. Sloan Foundation feature film prize at Sundance. Set on beautiful Dal Lake in the troubled region of Kashmir, “Valley of Saints” tells the moving story of a restless young boatman and his budding relationship with an alluring scientist who is investigating the lake for environmental pollutants. Shot on location with local talent in the midst of a military curfew, the film inspires a follow-up discussion of how scientific insight can have a profound impact on vital ecosystems, and even help heal long-simmering conflict zones.
