Screening of internationally acclaimed Punjabi movie Anhey Ghorhey Da Daan is scheduled in Birmingham (UK) on Sunday 25 march 2012 at 7pm at Drum Arts Centre. (Tickets £5)
‘Anhey Ghorhey Da Daan’, based on the novel of the same name by Punjabi novelist and Jnanpeeth Award winner Professor Gurdial Singh, is said to be the first Punjabi film screened at the Venice film festival. Delhi based Gurvinder Singh’s movie was released in 2011. In a refined balladic manner, this atmosphere-driven film tackles the fate of a repressed family in a village in Punjab. Subjugated and marginalized, the characters silently but emphatically emanate restlessness and discontent.
