Baba Farid – Meera Dewan’s documentary celebrates the poetry and philosophy of the 12 th century mystic poet Baba Farid, revered by Sufis and Sikhs alike. Highlighting the contemporary feel of Baba Farid’s verses, which cut across class caste and religion, the film is a cinematic journey through his life and work. A compelling character in the film is Inderjit Singh Khalsa, the 94-year-old lawyer who runs the Baba Farid Society and preserves the saint’s literature and works.
