National award-winning film ‘Crossing Bridges’ is set to release on this August 29. PVR Director’s Rare will screen the movie, directed by Sange Dorjee Thongdok. The film is the first to be made in the Sherdukpen language of Arunachal Pradesh.
‘Crossing Bridges’ is the story of Tashi, a man in his early thirties who is compelled to return to his village in Arunachal Pradesh after eight years when he loses his job in the city. While he awaits word on any possible job so that he can go back to the city, Tashi begins to experience the life of his people.
“This is the story of the place I come from. The North-East is a region that is hardly spoken of, and in our country too, not much is known about the people of the region or their ways. Crossing Bridges is our attempt to bridge this gap. “Winning the National Award for the film was an incredible moment but we are all the more elated about the wide release of Crossing,” the director said.
