Anhey Ghorey Da Daan to screen at The Museum of Modern Art in New York

By NewsDesk • Published on July 9, 2012

Alms for a Blind Horse (Anhey Ghorey Da Daan) directed by Gurvinder Singh will be screened at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.

The film will be presented from August 22-28, 2012 as part of monthly exhibition ‘ContemporAsian’.

“Based on a Punjabi novel, Singh’s debut feature follows a small-town family that gets caught up in a power struggle when a neighbor’s home is demolished. A cast of nonprofessional actors delivers intensely committed performances, and Singh makes use of evocative formal compositions and meditative stillness to dramatize his characters’ discontent and unfulfilled desires. The film calls attention to the latent violence that resides in those who see no possibility for a better life. Singh follows the highly stylistic approach to storytelling pioneered by his mentor, Mani Kaul,” as mentioned on the official website of MoMA.

Gurvinder Singh won the National Award for Best Director for Anhey Ghorey Da Daan.
