|Filmmaker/s Bio Note/s||Shakeb studied English Literature at Jamia Millia University, Delhi. An accidental exposure to European Cinema made him interested in doing a transition from studying word to studying image. He subsequently did an MA in Film and Television Production. He has since been working independently as a cinematographer and institutional and developmental documentary filmmaker.|
Caught in the crosshairs of a war against terror, a politics of fear and prejudice and a convulsion of increasingly polarised identities, Azamgarh is a tarnished town today. Expansively seen as a ‘nursery of terror’ because of the corporate media, Azamgarh, a small sleepy district in Uttar Pradesh, the locals insist, is much more than a dangerous breeding ground for deranged terrorists.
