A Thumbnail for a Kavery Kaul Interview For The Movie The Bengali

Enjoy this Kavery Kaul Interview

Writer Fatima Shaik is spurred to travel from New Orleans to Khori, a remote village in India, the home of her grandfather, Shaik Mohamed Musa. The Bengali follows Shaik on a moving journey from the city of her birth to the land of her grandfather in an attempt to connect with her ancestry. Though Shaik initially envisioned a storybook homecoming, reality is presented as something quite different. 

Through candid interviews and clever animations, the film highlights previously unexplored ties between South Asians and African-Americans in the Unite States. Men from India arrived to the United States arrived in the late nineteenth-century, marrying African-American women. Though America rejected them, the Muslims and Christians managed to build families together.
