Ted Forsyth from Rochester Indymedia sat down with filmmaker Mara Ahmed to discuss her new documentary “A Thin Wall” looking at the partition between Pakistan and India that was created in 1947.

Using memory, poetry, animation, music, art, and interviews, Ahmed and co-producer Surbhi Dewan, weave together a fascinating story of human commonality and the “universal ache” that continues to emerge from colonial violence. The interview was conducted on April 3, 2015.
