Watch: Go On a Solemn Hike Through India in Exclusive 'Loev' Clip

One of the most daring films of the year is coming to SXSW. “Loev,” directed by Sudhanshu Saria, is an Indian film that chronicles the unexpected romance between a pair of old pals.

Per its official synopsis, “When hot shot, Wall Street dealmaker Jai thinks of putting some pleasure into his 48-hour business trip to Mumbai, his young, music-producer friend, Sahil, drops everything, including his reckless boyfriend Alex, to help him execute the perfect getaway. Hiking the hills and canyons of Maharashtra, amidst half-attempted conversations and sudden silences, business calls and old jokes, the friends discover there is more than just time-zones keeping them apart. Things take another turn when Alex shows up with a new male-companion at his side, throwing up old conflicts and bringing unanswered questions to the fore.”

Homosexuality is punishable by law in India, which required the film to be shot in complete secrecy. In our exclusive clip up above, you will see just a small glimpse of the stunning end result. 

“Loev” will make its North American premiere at SXSW later this week.
