Impressions of India

AFTER bagging a slew of awards, including three National Awards, Gurvinder Singh's Alms for a Blind Horse (Anhey Ghohrey Da Daan) has been selected for a screening at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York. The Punjabi film will be screened from August 22-28, as part of their ContemporAsian series. Based on a Punjabi novel, the feature film follows a small-town family that gets caught up in a power struggle when a neighbour's home is demolished. The MoMA officials believe that "the film calls attention to the latent violence that resides in those who see no possibility for a better life". As part of the package, MoMa is also presenting two of the late Indian filmmaker Mani Kaul's films, Dhrupad and Siddheshwari, from August 24-26.
