Submitted for patient review, a "Women Make Film" tale from Pakistan. "Auntie," the "woman who won't go to the well" is well-liked in her small village. She has a secret that dates back to the 1947 Indian Partition, where people were forced to choose between The Muslim State (Pakistan) or the Hindu State (India). In a nutshell, she's a Sikh living in a Muslim village. This is also a village-level look at the drift toward Islamic Fundamentalism that makes former villagers who happen to be Sikh, "unwelcome pilgrims." The first five minutes place "Silent Waters" in perspective for the actors and the world. Skip ahead if it suits you.
