Director Statement

Hi...
This film "Children of Conflict" is my first Indie professional film, completed in limited budget.
Teamwork made it the first digital short film in 'Kashmiri language' recognized and awarded Internationally. All the artists in the film had their life's first experience with the camera and shooting. But they all, especially the children worked really hard and gave me what I wanted from them in front of the camera. Since the incidents in the film are something they experience very often in their daily lives. Also my small crew also did a fantastic job, which held everything according to the schedule despite of many sudden technical or production faults/problems
