Rubel in Char… The No Man’s Land

Sourav Sarangi’s documentary CHAR…the No-Man’s Island, which recently won the 60th National award for Best Anthropological/Ethnographic film, is the only Indian film selected to screen at Tiburon international film festival.

The film tells the story of fourteen-year old Rubel who lives on a fragile island called Char on river Ganga which acts as the international border between India and Bangladesh. He dreams of going to his old school in India but reality forces him to smuggle stuff to Bangladesh.

The festival will be held from April 11-19 in Tiburon, California.
