Now here’s a film that I’ve been looking forward to ever since it’s incredible run in the international festival circuit. Kalo Pothi by Min Bahadur Bham will be screened in London in July as part of the London Indian Film Festival.
The film which follows the friendship of Prakash and Kiran won the Best Film Award at Venice International Film Critics’ Week (an independent section) at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival. From what I’ve heard and read, Kalo Pothi is also doing wonderful business in the cinemas in Nepal. You can still catch a screening in selected cinemas right now.
The 90 minute long film will be screened at the Crouch End Picturehouse on Saturday 16th July at 3PM and at the ICA Cinema on 17th July at 3PM.
So excited! Slightly torn between which screening to attend. Hmm!
Hope you guys spread the word, get the tickets and be there to witness this work of art!
Year 2001, a temporary ceasefire brings much-needed break to a small war-torn village in Northern Nepal, bringing much joy among the residents. PRAKASH and KIRAN, two young close friends, are also starting to feel the change in the air. Though they are divided by caste and social creed, they remain inseparable, and start raising a hen gifted by Prakash’s sister, with hopes to save money by selling her eggs. However, the hen goes missing. To find it, they embark on a journey, innocently unaware of the tyranny brought by the fragile ceasefire.
