Zero Bridge

Zero Bridge tells the coming-of-age story of Dilawar, an unloved but clever teenage pickpocket planning his escape from occupied Kashmir and from his strict uncle, Ali Muhammed, a weary mason worker who struggles to make ends meet and to raise the rebellious young man. Dilawar’s selfish plans take a twist, however, when he forms an unorthodox bond to Bani, the bright, nurturing woman whose life he ruined during his most recent stealing spree. Dilawar’s previous actions endanger his friendship with Bani, as well as both of their futures.

This is the first dramatic narrative feature film about contemporary daily life in the Indian-occupied city of Srinagar, Kashmir. It was filmed entirely on location in Srinagar, with a strictly local cast of first-time, non-professional actors performing in their native Kashmiri language and with a technical crew of one: the director.
