Link for purchasing Tickets:
In his first feature film The Last Color, Writer director Vikas Khanna tells a story at a time in India when widows were exiled to Ashrams and were forbidden to participate in any rituals or festivals. Stunning vistas of Varanasi provide a rich backdrop to this intriguing story of an unusual friendship between Choti a tightrope walker and Noor (Stellar performance by Neena Gupta) a widow living a life of forced austerity. Pitting the smoke rising from the funeral pyres of Manikarnika Ghat, against the joyous color-bursts of Holi celebrations, Vikas Khanna’s marvellously layered story of the survival of a delicate friendship, is brilliantly told and poignantly life-affirming,
This is celebrity Chef Vikas Khanna's debut movie. He will be attending in person and interacting with the audience in a panel discussion after the showing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9VQsr6XQ50

Sindhustan is the story of the largest migration of a culture in history told through ink (tattoos).
Sapna Bhavnani interviewed people from the Sindhi community, and turned their stories into tattoos on her legs, thus becoming a human map .
Over a span of 10 days of non-stop pain, she turned into a human map of Partition, a museum of memory.
Sapna will be attending the event in person and taking audience questions in a panel discussion right after the screening.
