Visions from India Film Club
Wednesday, November 4 | 7:00 – 9:30 p.m. | Vimeo
Join us online for a Visions from India film club! We kick things off on November 4 with a virtual film screening of the 2016 film Masaan, a dramatic love story of two young people living in the holy city of Benares, India, whose lives are interrupted by authorities in the name of moral tradition. Following the film screening, Rita Meher of the Tasveer South Asian Film Festival and the Coalition of South Asian Film Festivals will interview the film’s director, Neeraj Ghayawan. This is a not-to-be-missed chance to hear straight from the highly acclaimed director of this award-winning film.
