West Coast Premiere
Official Selection to Tribeca, Mumbai and Calgary Festivals, 2019, and Winner, Facebook award for Film with Most Buzz
Bhaskar Hazarika’s quietly shocking film blends gentle romance and body horror into a unique cinematic experience. Niri (a doctor) and Sumon (a doctoral student) find common ground in their shared love for unconventional meats. As Sumon pursues a dissertation on the regional meat-eating traditions across India, he woos Niri with increasingly adventurous delicacies that he lovingly prepares for her.
Hazarika masterfully concocts a tale of love and addiction, that builds slowly – from a lilting rhythm to a pounding finale.
“Bhaskar Hazarika folds in class commentary and dreamlike interludes, but saves the film’s most surprising and shocking gambit—and aftermath—for the third act, capping off an unforgettable meditation on taboo and transgression.” – Frederick Boyer, Tribeca Film Festival
