National Film Development Corporation (NFDC) will release Anhey Ghorey Da Daan (Alms for the Blind Horse) directed by Gurvinder Singh on 10th August, 2012 in association with PVR Director’s Rare.

Gurvinder Singh’s first feature film based on Punjabi novelist Gurdial Singh’s novel tries to bring to screen the effect that years of subordination can bring to struggling masses in the face of events spinning beyond their control.

It was the first Punjabi film screened at the Venice International Film Festival 2011. It also screened at the 55th BFI London Film Festival and Busan International Film Festival 2011.

The film won the Special Jury Mention and the Black Pearl Trophy at the 5th Abu Dhabi Film Festival and the Special Jury Award at the International Film Festival, Rotterdam 2012.

At the 59th National Film Awards this year, the film won the Best Punjabi Language Film. It also won Gurvinder Singh the award for Best Director while debutant Cinematographer Satya Rai Nagpaul received the Best Cinematographer Award.
