Event Description:
Patang (Prashant Bhargava, 2011, USA, 93 minutes): 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. Music and fireworks, food and laughter, a kaleidoscope of color and light, the magic of the kite flying high a traditional recipe of healing and renewal.

"With naturalistic performances from actors and non-actors alike, bold, lyrical editing, vibrant cinematography and a kinetic score, Patang delights the senses and nourishes the spirit. This film is joyous, but more than that. It's lovely in its construction. It flies as free and colorfully as a kite." --Roger Ebert

"During the day and night of the festival... certain familiar themes appear: about wealth in the new India, family responsibility, old ways versus modern ones. They seem fresh here. So does Patang." -- NY Times

Sangam (Prashant Bhargava, 2004, USA, 28 minutes): Two South Asian men on a subway share their nostalgia, loneliness, hopes and despair about life in America.
