South Asian Fest Unveils Closer

The sixth South Asian International Film Festival will close with the directorial debut of Paresh Mokashi’s “Harishchandrachi Factory” on November 3. The film revolves around the true story of Dhundiraj Govind Phalke’s quest to create India’s furst full-length feature film, “Raja Harishchandra.” Released in 1913, “Raja Harishchandra” was a big hit and the starting point for the emergence of the world’s biggest film industry, Bollywood.
