Crossing Bridges (PVR 3)

Sange Dorjee Thongdok’s Crossing Bridges is all set to release in Mumbai, Delhi, Pune and Bangalore on 29 August, via PVR Director’s Rare. It’s the first feature film ever to be made in Shertupken, a dialect and tribal community from Arunachal Pradesh. It previously showed at the Mumbai Film Festival and Dharamsala Film Festival where it was warmly received. Here’s the synopsis and trailer of the film:

Tashi, a man in his early thirties is forced to come back to his village in the remote northeast region of India after eight years when he loses his job in the city. As he stays in the village waiting for a new job in the city to go back to, he experiences the life and culture of his native place and his people, which he never paid attention to before. As he rediscovers love, friendship and his roots, when Tashi gets the news that he has found himself a new job in the city, he must decide whether to go away or stay back home for good.

    PVR forever treats Chennai in step-motherly fashion 😦 we did not get to see Om-Dar-Ba-Dar and now we are missing this gem as well. For the love of God if someone has a contact at PVR – please ask them to screen these specials in Chennai as well.

  2. Nobody is writing a detailed critique about it?

  3. I finally watched it The plot itself is not new but most people not born in the metros will probably relate to it. I do not think the hinterlands of ‪‎Arunachal‬ have been captured by anyone before in such an intimate manner. Also, the unexplained but surreal subplot deserves a spinoff…

    Excellent cinematography evoked certain distant memories and once again reminded me of the things that can be seen only in the mountains… moon in broad day light, starry sky at night and pebbles under the crystal clear streams…
