Join Through the Lens at The MAIN in Old Town Newhall on Thursday, July 28 at 7 p.m. to watch the feel-good Indian film, “T for Taj Mahal,” from director Kireet Khurana and participate in a very special live in-person talkback with the filmmakers afterward.
Khurana is an honors graduate from Sheridan College in Canada and has gone on to direct two films for the prestigious National Film Board of Canada and UNICEF. He has won over 30 awards, including six President’s National awards, and has created over 20 short films on various social issues in addition to 450+ advertisements for leading brands and agencies. He also notably directed India’s first live-action/3D animated combo feature film, “Toonpur Ka Superrhero.”
“T for Taj Mahal” is the inspiring story of a man, Bansi, who sets out to solve the illiteracy problem in his village by starting an “Eat and Teach” campaign at his new restaurant on the way to the Taj Mahal aimed at tourists. As travelers from across the globe come to eat at his dhaba, he offers food in exchange for their time spent teaching the local children various lessons on everything from religion, to spelling, to math. It is a heartwarming story about building community and following your passion.
You definitely won’t want to miss out on this great new local event, where you will not only get to watch a film for free, but also meet and talk with the filmmakers and learn something new about the Indian culture.
