IHC film festival is known for showcasing intelligent, sensitive, arty, and progressive cinema. The allure of this film festival is that here the movies are shown in an informal, leisurely, and intellectually stimulating setting.
The ongoing edition of the IHC film festival has some carefully selected movies from all over the world. We have representations from Korean, Iranian, Spanish, Polish and many more such powerhouse film-making centres. The beauty of the festival is that it brings some small budget little known and non-commercial films, which otherwise won’t be seen on major OTT platforms or as commercial releases in theatre. And the best part is that these movies are all free to watch.
One such film is The Taste of Pho (Poland). It is a sensitive and realistic tale of a migrant Vietnamese family consisting of a father and a 10-year-old daughter. The movie shows a father trying to adjust to the new culture and a growing-up daughter with a mind of her own.
A nicely done-up food court with plenty of delicacies to choose from adds more flavour to the festival. The setting feels particularly pleasing once the lights come up.
The film festival started on May 6 and will go on till May 15. Movies like Dhuin by Achal Mishra, The Drover’s Wife, The Legend Of Molly Johnson, 1983, Natholi Our Cheriya Meenalla, Calm With Horses and The Metamorphosis of Birds are to be screened on May 10, 2022.
