Siddharth

Inspired by a heartbreaking incident experienced by the director – a man searching for his child, with no photographs, clues, or literacy skills – Siddharth follows a father’s search across India in search of his missing son. Surviving on the meagre earnings as a zipper-fixer, Mehendra sends his twelve-year-old son to work in a distant factory. In a region plagued by child trafficking, Siddarth’s disappearance is particularly worrying. Shot in Mumbai and Punjab, Siddharth has received a ton of praise, winning Best Film and Best Director at the South Asian International Film Festival and making Human Rights Watch’s Official Selection. Siddharth screens at Luna Palace cinemas from October 9.
