Coming to POV tonight, Monday, August 10:

Archana Atul Phadke

World Premiere:
Sheffield 2019

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC, DMZ Docs, Mumbai

An observational portrait of three generations of the filmmaker’s family.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
In this intimate and often funny observational portrait, director Archana Phadke trains her camera on three generations of her family, all living together in the same home in Mumbai. As the household prepares for her brother Rohan’s wedding, Archana – determined, like her sister, to remain single – captures the rhythms of the ever-busy household. Coming into particular focus are Archana’s long-suffering grandmother, Neela, who tends to her ailing, sexist husband, and her mother, Maneesha, who confesses a secret escape from her own feelings of marital frustration.
