Border Crossing
2013

This video was shot during a visit to Pakistan and India in January 2013. It is actual footage of me crossing the border from Pakistan to India. The border crossing is known as Wagah and it is located in the shared State of Punjab. The crossing has 500 metres of no-mans land in which every visitor must walk to the other country.
I shot to this video to create a dialogue about the current conflict between the two countries vs. the shared history and culture. It is also a means to break stereotypes about the conflict that one hears about India and Pakistan through Western media
