The UK and Europe's largest South Asian film festival rocks up for its ninth year with an entertaining and thought provoking line-up of independent films that offer a rare window into a billion South Asian lives in the sub-continent right now. Mehsampur: UK Premiere. Oddball filmmaker Devrath arrives in Punjab to make a movie on the popular folk-singing duo Amar Singh Chamkila and Amarjot Kaur who were assassinated in the village of Mehsampur in 1988. He rescues a wannabe actress from lechers and finds a survivor of the assassination and the three of them go on a trip to Mehsampur. Their journey is a breath-taking ride culminating in an explosive finale. This bold, at times psychedelic, film melds together fiction and documentary and explores narrative structures in a way Indian cinema has never seen before. Prepare to be shell-shocked! In Punjabi, and Hindi, with English subtitles. 15 - some strong language, sex references, smoking.
