Still from Here and Away

Here and Away, an India-US production directed and produced by Meena Nanji, will be screened at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. The 29th edition of the festival will be held from May 2-12, 2013 in Southern California.

The 12 minute Hindi film touches on the subject of urbanization and its impact on the minds of children. A 10 year old boy from a village near the Indian capital city looks at the visible skyscrapers on the horizon and contemplates on his past, present and the future.

Started in 1983, the festival has presented nearly 4,000 films and videos by Asian international and Asian Pacific American artists.

In 2012, Musa Syeed was awarded with the Grand Jury Award and Special Jury Awards for his feature film Valley of Saints.
