CGD is pleased to announce the third and final installment of its annual summer film series, Global Development Matters, with a screening of the documentary-like feature film Valley of Saints. Through stunning cinematography, the film explores life in Dal Lake, a community of fishermen and farmers who increasingly rely on tourism to earn a living. Set amongst the backdrop of the 2010 mass protests calling for the demilitarization of Kashmir, the film focuses on the environmental impact of urbanization on the lake and the effect on the livelihoods of its inhabitants.

Arvind Subramanian will make brief remarks on CGD's new India Initiative prior to the start of the film.
