Imagineindia International Film Festival at Casa Asia Centre-Madrid

Imagineindia International Film Festival en el Centro Casa Asia-Madrid IMG2

The Casa Asia Centre-Madrid hosts a session in collaboration with the ImagineIndia International Film Festival with two films, Whithered Leaf (Sri Lanka) and Tiger Hunter (India), which were released last year in those countries, but which have remained outside the commercial circuits in Spain.

It is an occasion to show cinema that demonstrate the social view predominates, the defense of the pluralism, the equality of opportunities, the human rights and the gender policies. In reality, they are like two windows to worlds, which we have no chance to see and can only learn from the cinematographic image, allowing us to contemplate social realities that are not news. Those protagonists share their individualities within the framework of a present.



17:00 WITHERED LEAF, Dir. Duminda Sanjeewa | Sri Lanka | 2016 | 90 '| VOSE

Withered Leaf explores the difficult situation of widows and their children in Sri Lankan society. It is the story of a peasant woman who becomes a widow and a single mother, so she is forced to choose between life and death because of poverty, gender inequality and ignorance of society. Duminda Sanjeewa was born in Colombo, Sri Lanka in 1984 and has a sharp cinematographic eye that has allowed her to create some of Sri Lanka's most amazing productions, television commercials, music videos and films. He has a deep passion for animation and especially for special effects, and also enjoys making movies that allow the public to escape from the harsh reality of daily life.

19:00 THE TIGER HUNTER, Dir. Lena Khan | india | 2016 | 94 '| VOSE
Lena Khan was inspired by the stories of her father and other emigrants when they first went to America to write this story that reflects the process of adaptation of the great migrations. it is about maintaining the balance between their cultural traditions and the diversity of the American society. It is the story of a young Indian who moves to Chicago in the seventies to become an engineer, but when he does not get the job he was trying to find, he resorts to a farce that his friends have created to seduce his love of childhood.
