The last film in Channel 4’s current, short South Asian film season will be the Nepali film Saanghuro.
Director Joes Pandey’s debut picture is the story of a lower middle-class family living in an urban slum in Kathmandu and it portrays life as a constant struggle, according to Channel 4.
Or, as the film’s Facebook page explains it, Saanghuro is “the psycho-social conflict of characters that leads unusual circumstances and raises many unsolved questions”.
Either way its another step forward for the nascent film industry in Nepal, where the dominant cinema in the region has traditionally come from India.
• Saanghuro – Thursday 22 May, 00:50 – 02:35
