I was lucky enough to catch Patang when it played at VIFF while I visited Vancouver for a week. An assured feature that gets at the heart of humanity with a lyrical visual aesthetic that will envelope you in its dramatic display of Indian culture. My full review is here: http://www.jaredmobarak.com/2011/10/03/patang/ And my interview with the personable and intelligent director: http://www.jaredmobarak.com/2011/10/04/interview-prashant-bhargava/

What a beautiful film! I had a chance to see the film when Prashant Bhargava brought the film to Indiana University Cinema last April. I felt like I stepped directly into the multifaceted life of the family and community Patang explores. I greatly appreciated the aliveness and authenticity of the acting, the confidence with which the camera engaged the expansiveness of the kite festival while never losing touch with the family dynamics unfolding over the course of the festival. I hope many people find themselves drawn to this fine feature film. I know I look forward to seeing more of Bhargava's work.

Do not miss this masterfully created poetic journey through the bylanes of the old city of Ahmedabad. Prashant Bhargava captures the essence of the city like no one else has so far. Must watch. It has been a 7 year long journey for Prashant and his team. Prashant says Kite flying is like meditation. So is watching this film.

Patang is an independent experimental Indian film that highlights naturalistic, unique performances, bold, lyrical editing, vibrant cinematography, and a fun soundtrack. It is very different than the bollywood films coming out now, in that it speaks to the traditions and beauties of the kite festivals in India.

A great director. Exceptionl cinematography and acting. As Ebert said, "masterful." Unfortunately not a film that is appreciated by a large audience.
