2006 SF International South Asian Film Festival

The 2006 San Francisco International South Asian Film Festival is this weekend – November 10-11-12 at Yerba Buena, the Castro, and the Roxie.

There are a couple of films that look wonderful (descriptions taken from the Festival website):

The Foresaken Land

Winner of Cannes’ prestigious Camera d’or prize, ‘The Forsaken Land’ is an exquisitely shot, visually stunning poetic drama that meditates upon the alienating effects of civil war in Sri Lanka.


Omkara is a beautifully cinematic, brilliantly executed and inspired adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello set against the milieu of political and gangster warfare in the interiors of india’s Uttar Pradesh. Art house meets Bollywood.

And of course:

Shah Rukh Khan
Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (KANK/Never Say Goodbye)

Come celebrate BOLLYWOOD at the Castro!! Kank is the latest Bollywood feature from India. With its star-studded cast, (irresistible Shah Rukh Khan and Rani Mukherjee), fantasy sets, endearing musical scores, KANK will move you to laugh, cry, sing and dance. Perfect for Bollywood devotees and novices alike.

Shah Rukh Khan mugging and crying – who could resist?  (Sharon – I’m sure you’ll be going to this one!)
