Summary: "The Human Boundaries" (2012) is an award winning critically acclaimed English documentary of 35 minute duration on the life of the Hindu refugees from Pakistan. A group of 151 Pakistani Hindus entered India on September, 2011 with a one month tourist visa. They came to take refuge from the various religious persecutions they had to face in Pakistan. The group which has a majority of children and women are now sheltered in a camp on the outskirts of New Delhi. But now their visa has expired and is facing deportation. Various organizations are fighting for the basic human rights of these people at the political and judicial level. Their story is a grim reminder of all those lives caught up in no man's land. As more boundaries are drawn across the human conscience, we failed to realize that humanity has always suffered. The film was shot in a highly restricted and sensitive environment inside the refugee camp in a short span of 3 days with the use of minimal filming equipments. This documentary traces the difficulties they had to face in Pakistan, their life inside the camp and their hopes for tomorrow.
