Parts of Parts & Stitches

by Riti Sachdeva

directed by Cat Parker

 

A joyous, colorful occasion, a wedding day in the Punjabi region, 1947, the patchwork of two families eager with anticipation for their pending unification. In PARTS OF PARTS & STITCHES, Yamuna and Jiwan prepare for their lives and future together in a small village of what is soon to become Pakistan. Soon after the couple celebrates their matrimony, the reality of the political and religious upheaval forced on the country by Britain’s abandonment, becomes apparent. The violence of man against man, Hindus against Muslims, erupts in a horrific massacre. With perseverance and a will to survive, Yamuna desperately attempts to stitch back the pieces of her life. PARTS OF PARTS & STITCHES uses magical realism to show the horrific events that occurred during the Partition of India & Pakistan.
