The colorful and vibrant motion picture PATANG will have its theatrical release on June 15 at Cinema Village in New York City. Openings in additional U.S. cities will be announced soon. Starring Seema Biswas (Water, Bandit Queen) and Nawazuddin Siddiqui (Peepli Live, Dev D), the powerful and moving film tells of a family which must confront its own fractured past during Uttarayan, India’s largest kite festival in Ahmedabad.
A poetic journey to the old city of Ahmedabad, PATANG weaves together the stories of six people transformed by the energy of India’s largest kite festival. Every year a million kites fill the skies above Ahmedabad – dueling, soaring, tumbling and flying high. When a successful Delhi businessman takes his daughter on a surprise trip back to his childhood home for the festival, an entire family has to confront its own fractured past and fragile dreams.
