Chicago South Asian Film Festival Kicks off with Rang Rasiya

The second annual Chicago South Asian Film Festival is set to start on Friday, September 30, with the opening night featuring a showing of Rang Rasiya, a movie based on the life of a prominent 19th century Indian artist. The festival was originally created last year as Amit Rana’s project in Landmark Education’s Self-Expression and Leadership Program (see Landmark Education News‘ initial story about the first festival).

Rang Rasiya plays at 7pm on the opening night, and is followed by a question-and-answer session with key actors from the film. Opening night of the festival is taking place at the Chicago Cultural Center, on 77 E. Randolph St., with red carpet ceremonies beginning at 5:30pm. The festival runs through Sunday, October 2.

    That is one of my SELP team’s particpants – Yes!

    Congrats Amit. You definitely shifted the Predictable Future here and expanded your communities far beyond their geographic and ethnic boundaries. Well done!

    I love this site. And all that the Landmark Graduates are doing to transform the world. I wanted to post a follow up link to some of the things that MAKE A FILM FOUNDATION is doing.

    We started a new program called ‘Vidz 4 Kidz’ in which we team kids who have terminal illnesses with Film mentors and hand-held video cameras to help them make short docs.

    Here are two short trailers:
