Séance en partenariat et avec le soutien du département Asie du Sud & Himalaya de l’INALCO 


A Tongue Untied — The Story of Dakhani (2017) is a film about a fallen language and its rich history. Born in the Deccan region of South central India towards the end of the 13th century, the language is a marker of a rich mixed culture born out of the encounter between Muslim migrants from the North, Central Asia, the Arab world and Persia with the local population. Poorly regarded for centuries, Dakhani literature came to be created due to the exchanges between migrant Sufis and local saints. Its glorious history and rich legacy have been largely ignored. Written out of history books, 350 years of Dakhani classical literature has remained in the shadows. But there are many who keep the spoken form alive even to this day through their everyday pithy, folksy humour. While exploring the poetry of modern era satirists, this film simultaneously traces the journey of the language over time till its precipitous fall in the early 18th century.  This is the story of a land, a people and their beloved language. This is the story of Dakhani.


La projection sera suivie d’un échange avec le réalisateur
