SAFFRON CINEMA proudly presents SOONGAVA: Dance of the Orchids (the Official Nepalese entry for the OSCARS2014)
Saffron Cinema kicks off the season with the controversial SOONGAVA: Dance of the Orchids - The movie centers around independent and strong-willed Diya who is training to be a traditional Nepalese dancer. She forms a deep friendship with another female dance pupil Kiran. Desolate when her parents find a suitable man for her to marry, Diya's closeness to Kiran becomes passionate and the two become lovers. The open relationship exposes them to ridicule and alienation. How their strength makes them surmount these hardships forms the climax of the film.
Beautifully made by France-based Nepalese Director Subarna Thapa, tackling this little explored subject in South Asian Cinema - SOONGAVA has achieved much praise at some of the world's biggest film festivals: A MUST SEE FILM!
