Screening of Dhanak (Rainbow) at Museum of the Moving Image
2 – 4PM
As a part of its monthly cinema series, India’s New Wave, Museum of the Moving Image proudly presents Nagesh Kukunoor’s Dhanak (Rainbow).
Dhanak (Rainbow) is an enchanting modern fable from director Nagesh Kukunoor tells the story of two orphans, ten-year-old Pari (Hetal) and her eight-year-old blind brother Chotu (Krrish Chhabbria), who live in a desert village in Rajasthan. Chotu wants nothing more than to have his vision back and Pari—inspired by a message she sees on a Shah Rukh Khan poster—promises him he’ll get it before his birthday arrives. Determined to restore her brother’s sight before his ninth birthday, Pari leads Chotu on a journey across the desert to where the legendary actor is shooting his next movie. Along the way they encounter a host of colorful characters who both help and hinder their passage, leading to an exciting and magical finale. Dhanak won The Grand Prix of the Generation Kplus International Jury for the best feature-length film at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival.
