Upside Down (Khalti doka varti paay)
Dir. Ajay Singh. 2012, 80 mins. Digital. India. North American sneak preview. The entertaining, endearing film Upside Down, suitable for family audiences, is about a child’s much-anticipated trip from rural Maharashtra to the big city of Mumbai. Urban life is nothing short of a spectacular circus in his eyes (and it is the circus he has been dying to go see). Recommended for ages 10+.
Preceded by Life Keeps on Passing (Robert Gardner, 1985, 5 mins.), filmed on the River Ganges.
