an incredibly moving and
inspiring story.”
William Brownridge,
TORONTO FILM SCENE
Winner of two awards at the 2015 Berlin
Film Festival and fresh from its US
Premiere as the Closing Night Gala of
the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles,
Nagesh
Kukunoor’s
(HYDERABAD
BLUES) enchanting fable is the stunning
tale of orphaned siblings who embark on a
journey across Rajasthan in an attempt to
meet the great Shah Rukh Khan. 10-yearold Pari is the responsible older sister to
Chotu, her high-spirited blind brother on
the brink of his 9th birthday. When the
two learn the actor is filming only a few
hundred kilometers from their village, they
sneak away from their aunt and uncle’s
home and set out to meet the superstar.
What follows is a colorful, touching, and
humorous trek filled with magic and music
that perfectly captures the innocence and
adventure of childhood.

Liz Whittemore, REEL NEWS DAILY
Intimate and unsettling, AMONG THE
BELIEVERS charts the personal crusade
of firebrand Pakistani cleric Abdul Aziz
Ghazi, an ISIS supporter and Taliban
ally, and The Red Mosque organization,
whose schools (madrassas) are training
thousands of young children to take part
in jihad (holy war). With unprecedented
access, the filmmakers follow Aziz, his
longtime opponent, education reformer
Dr. Pervez Hoodbhoy, and school children
Talha and Zarina—two teenagers on
entirely different educational paths in
the religious and secular systems. This
eye-opening doc, by turns terrifying and
heartbreaking, offers a rare insight into
the ideological battle between moderate
and fundamentalist forces that is shaping
modern Pakistan and the Muslim world.

“One of the funniest
documentaries I’ve ever
seen.” Scott Feinberg,
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
At the cusp of 30 and devastated by the breakup
of a long-term relationship, Indian-American
actor Ravi Patel has reached the breaking point
with Western-style courtship. A despondent
Ravi and his filmmaking sister Geeta fly to India
to see their relatives, and Ravi notes how their
parents, Champa and Vasant, who met via a
traditional Indian arranged marriage, are still
happy and together after 35 years. Eventually,
Ravi decides to give his parents’ method a try
and allow them to arrange the perfect mate
for him—all while his sister films it. Anybody
who’s ever dated or faced parental pressure
to get hitched will relate to Ravi’s uproarious
humiliations. Winner of the Audience Award at
the 2014 Los Angeles Film Festival, MEET THE
PATELS is an incredibly witty commentary on
how ancient marriage rituals clash with modern
attitudes of romance and self-determination.
