HALEEMA in India!

The “Voices From The Waters” Film Festival in Bangalore will screen HALEEMA during the festival from September 11-14 in the National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA). Seating is free on a first come first served base. If you are in Indie be a part of this important event!

“We are going through a phase of uncertain climatic conditions of unseasonal gale and storm, heat wave and cold wave, melting Antarctica and rising seas gobbling up the landmass, increasing desertification and so on. The festival offers you a glimpse into all these and more – the struggle, the hopes and despair, the success stories…”

This is not only HALEEMA’s India premiere but also the first time every that one of my films is screened in a film festival in India. 🙂
