After winning awards and acclaim at prestigious film festivals across the globe, including its World Premiere at the Berlin Film Festival and North American Premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, the colorful and vibrant motion picture PATANG will have its theatrical release on June 15 at Cinema Village in New York City! The movie has been racking up awards, reviews and features at the most prestigious film festivals around the world!
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.
The movie was the official selection of the Berlin Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Jerusalem Film Festival, Vancouver, International Film Festival, Chicago International Film Festival, Hong Kong Asian Film Festival, Philadelphia International Film Festival, and Geneva International Film Festival.
Patang also won Best Narrative Feature at the Hawaii International Film Festival, and Best Narrative Feature at the DC APA Film Festival
Patang has even received some amazing reviews from the likes of Roger Ebert!
“The storytelling is effortlessly made part of the hypnotically beautiful visuals, and woven into a kaleidoscope of colors, faces, music and a little romance. Bhargava is masterful in the way he allows his story to emerge from his mosaic, instead of spelling it out by the numbers. Evokes the old and new Indias side by side as well as I’ve seen done.” – ROGER EBERT
Be sure to catch Patang releasing June 15!
