3rd i Films Co-presents “Court” at SFIFF

3rd i Films co-presents at the 58th annual San Francisco International Film Festival.

Court, directed by Chaitanya Tamhane,  India, 2014, 116 min

The Mumbai police desperately want folk singer Narayan Kamble behind bars. After he is arrested onstage at a public performance, Kamble is surprised to learn that he is being charged with abetment of suicide: a sewage worker allegedly heard his poetry shortly before being found dead. What is an obviously absurd accusation, however, is taken quite seriously by the municipal authorities. Court becomes as much an examination of contemporary Indian life as it is of a flawed justice system, raising questions about social and economic structures while vividly painting the individuals who must navigate them.
