London Asian Film Festival Opening Gala
Reception – 7pm – 8pm
Dr. Amit Singh ran first from partition, now from fast-approaching dementia and a looming nursing home.
Having escaped the British partition of India, he must return to his childhood home, to face memories that have haunted his life one last time before dementia catches up with him. And before he is committed to a nursing home by his son. Salim, a Muslim rickshaw driver agrees to drive the Hindu doctor to his destination not aware of the complicated journey that lies ahead. Sharing their haunting past with each other, the pair forge a warm-hearted friendship that gives new meaning to solace. Humour-filled, Mango Dreams will take you on a journey. Destination? Unknown.
Followed by Q&A with Director John Upchurch
