The wonders of the East

A ROMANTIC drama set in the most remote corner of India gets its first British screening at

Kilburn's Tricycle Cinema on Thursday, February 4.

The showing of 2005's Sonam (The Fortunate One) is part of the London-wide not-for-profit Himalaya Film and Culture Festival that runs from today (January 28) to February 12.

Cinemagoers will be able to enjoy a

Q&A session with director Ahsan Muzid after the credits roll on the award-winning movie.

Over two hours, the film tells the fictional story of Sonam's experience of two simultaneous marriages in India's disputed north east frontier with China that remains out-of-bounds for foreigners.

It is the first film ever made in Monpa, a language of farmers and shepherds in the high hills and valleys, but comes with English subtitles.
