Kyar Kyar Pankha at Toronto Nepali Film Festival
Innis Town Hall 2 Sussex Ave, Toronto
We are proud to co-present Kyar Kyar Pankha as part of the Toronto Nepali Film Festival this year.
Directed by Pasang Dawa Sherpa, Kyar Kyar Pankha (the squeaking table fan) beautifully uses the squeaking fan as a metaphor for the life of Sampat, who works in electronic repair shop in metropolis of Kathmandu.
The films of TNFF 2015 portray lives of Nepalis within different regions of Nepal and abroad. Some of the featured films provide stories of prescribed ideas of success and constraints on individual aspirations. Some expose the human tribulations in terrains far away from “modern, city life”. The films’ power lies in ability to beautifully weave together joy and humor in lives of the characters depicted in the films.
