iW NEWS | South Asian Fest Kicks Off Tonight

The 2008 South Asian International Film Festival opens tonight at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City with the gala premiere of Nandita Das‘ “Firaaq.” The film is set over a 24-hour period, one month after carnage that took place in Gujarat, India, in 2002. The fest will close on October 28th with “Ramchand Pakistani,” a true story, also taking place in 2002, that concerns the accidental crossing of the Pakistan-Indian border during a period of war-like tension between the two countries by two members of a Pakistani Hindu family. Other films screening include “Super 30,” “The Pool,” “Kissing Cousins,” Doormat,” “Mohandas,” “Little Box of Sweets” and “Mahek.” For further information, check out the festival’s website.
