Spring Comes to Kashmir

India, 1956 (MIFF 1957, In Sun and Snow)

Director: Ravi Prakash

Shot in colour, the film captures the arrival of spring in the beautiful valley of Kashmir with its lovely white almond and pink cherry blossoms. We see the people coming out to work in the fields after winter snows have melted, when the earth is carpeted with yellow linseed flowers as far as the eye can see, presents the colourful glimpses of life on the Dal Lake with gay coloured boats moving lazily across its waters.
