LIFF at Home: Monsoon

Dir. Sturla Gunnarsson • 2015 • Malayalam/Assamese/Marathi/Hindi with English subtitles • Cert 15. 1h 48m

This documentary feature, shot in stunning 4K, is filmed across the subcontinent, charting the giant rain system’s path as it surges toward and gradually engulfs every region of India. It is a breathtaking cinematic journey into a terrain where nature, science, belief and wonder converge. It introduces us to a remarkable array of individuals whose lives are in different ways entwined with the phenomenon. For some, the great rains will be time of bountiful sustenance, for others it will be a time of great hardship. All are caught in this timeless human drama. The outstanding score, composed by London’s own Andrew T. MacKay, is based on the Malhar ragas and perfectly complements the multiple-award winning director’s epic vision.
