Image from the film Patang
In the old city of Ahmedabad, amid India’s largest kite festival, a family duels, spins and soars like the countless kites in the skies above. When a Delhi businessman returns to his childhood home in Ahmedabad for the kite festival, an entire family has to confront its own fractured past and fragile dreams. With naturalistic performances, bold, lyrical editing and vibrant cinematography, Patang delights the senses and nourishes the spirit. “Evokes the old and new India side by side as well as I’ve seen done.” – Roger Ebert. (2K DCP presentation)


Director Prashant Bhargava is scheduled to be present.

The screening is sponsored by The Madhusudan and Kiran C. Dhar India Studies Program. Special thanks to Michael Dodson. For more information on Prashant Bhargava's Jorgensen Guest Filmmaker Lecture, visit here.
