Belmont World Film Closes with the Indian film “Sir” on April 29 at West Newton Cinema at 1296 Washington Street in West Newton

Closing film of 18th Annual International Film Series preceded by an optional Indian dinner

Belmont World Film presents the US premiere of the Indian film Sir on Monday, April 29, at 7:30 PM at the West Newton Cinema at 1296 Washington Street in West Newton as the closing night film of its 18th Annual International Film Series. Directed by Rohena Gera, it is the second of three films directed by a woman during the organization’s spring programs. Winner of the Gan Foundation Award for Distribution at the Cannes Film Festival in 2018, the film concerns a young widow who moves to Mumbai in order to escape the pitfalls of the old-fashioned village that condemned her. While working as a servant for a privileged businessman, she dreams of being a fashion designer.

 

The screening will be preceded by an optional dinner from 6:00-7:00 PM at the theater, featuring Indian cuisine from Spice Delight in Belmont, and followed by a discussion led by Farida Kathawalla, co-founder of the American Indian Foundation's Circle of Hope. The evening is sponsored by the Consulate General of India and co-presented by Indian Americans of Lexington and NetSAP Boston.

 Given how few women’s voices are represented in the film industry, we are actively seeking opportunities to show more films created by women, especially first-time international filmmakers such as Rohena Gera.” says Belmont World Film Executive Director Ellen Gitelman. “This is the third year in a row where at least a third of our films are directed, and sometimes written, by women.”

 Tickets to the screening are $11 general admission and $9 for students and seniors in advance at www.belmontworldfilm.org, and $12 and $10, respectively, on day of show beginning at 7:00 PM with cash. EBT and WIC cardholders can purchase tickets at half price on day of show. Tickets to the Indian dinner are $30 and must be purchased by April 22 (tickets to the film screening must be purchased separately); tickets to the dinner will not be available at the door.

 Sponsors of the 2019 series include Consulate General of India, East Boston Savings Bank, the Australian Consulate General in NYC, Belmont Against Racism, the Consulate of Sweden in Boston, Belmont Media Center, Cambridge Reprographics, and the Scandinavian Cultural Center.
