Performance Notes

× Join us for the opening of VISAFF 2018, with a red carpet affair, cocktails and canapes, and inspired conversation. The gala includes dinner and the North American premiere of "Mehsampur", Kabir Singh Choudhry's meta-fiction film based on the life of Amar Singh Chamkila, which recently won the Grand Jury Prize for India Gold at MAMI Mumbai Film Festival.

FILM SCREENING OF MEHSAMPUR (MOCUMENTARY): 8 - 9:45pm (followed by Q&A with Kabir Chowdhry)

A desperate filmmaker drives a neurotic actress and an aging musician to a village of trauma in this 'mocumentary', based on the life and death of legendary Punjabi singer Amar Singh Chamkila.With some of Chamkila and Amarjot’s associates playing versions of themselves, this provocative and sexually explicit film blurs the line between fiction and reality.

LIGHT DINNER AND COCKTAILS: 9:45-10:30pm
