The South Asian countries are tied through a common heritage and similar socio-economic problems. However, despite its geopolitical sensitivity and human resource potential, there has been limited discussion on the possible areas of cooperation and barriers to such cooperation in the South Asian region. With the proposed USA withdrawal from Afghanistan and recent tensions between India and Pakistan, the conversation on South Asia has never been more relevant than it is today.
This event is co-sponsored by the South Asia Engagement group, the Centre for Economic Research in Pakistan, and the Lakshmi Mittal and Family South Asia Institute.

Amar Kanwar (b. 1964) is a New Delhi-based filmmaker and artist whose work has powerfully mined the potential of a slower, drifting method of moving image to forge a politically charged and engaged mode of gently expanded cinema. Kanwar’s critically acclaimed yet fiercely debated Such a Morning hovers on the border between magical realist allegory and slow cinema trance film with an almost Calvino-like fable of a renowned mathematician impulsively abandoning his university post, without explanation, to hibernate in a train car abandoned deep in a lush forest.
