Ashwatthama.

6 May, Sun, 7.30pm Screening Room, Festival House (120m) India, South Korea, 2017 Hindi with English subtitles.

$9 Bundle of 3 films: $24 Rating: PG BUY TICKETS PACKAGES Ashwatthama Ishvaku is enjoying his vacation at home and is immersed in Ashwatthama, the warrior from the Indian myth “Mahabharata” told by his mother every night.

Lord Krishna curses Ashwatthama to meander the world for eternity for his thirst for revenge against the Pandava clan.

But Ishvaku’s happiness does not last long.

His mother is killed by bandits who attack the village and he is then sent to his mother’s seemingly-timeless hometown in Chambal Valley, where three states meet: Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Uttar Pradesh.

Away from his father and with his mother dead, Ishvaku spends time alone.

The sacred cow visits the town and foretells Ishvaku that wisdom and tragedy are about to come at the same time.

Singular Screens The film programme for SIFA 2018, curated by the Asian Film Archive, features an international selection of exceptional new works celebrating independent voices across the world.

From the adversity of fictive or real-life icons to the positions of the marginalised, the constellation of films hopes to respond to the general sentiment of the festival programming with ideas revolving around the notion of resistance and the experience of the individual.

Continuing the trend from past SIFA film programmes, this individualism can also be experienced and translated on screen through the singular visions embodied by the filmmakers.

Valuing the ingenious and the risk-taking in cinema, Singular Screens hopes not only to be diverse in representation but bold in putting together its palette of cinematic adventures.

Whether as illustrations of resilience, peculiarity or the extraordinary, the films and their characters will continue to project imagined futures and aspire for alternate possibilities amid larger circumstances.
