Amar Kaushik delivers an honest story about youthful innocence in the acceptance and inevitability of mortality. A young girl is informed of her grandfather’s terminal illness, in a remote tribe of North Eastern India. With death knocking on his door , she watches as he calmly digs his own grave, furnishing it for his comfort in the hereafter with a handful of his worldly possessions. His light-hearted approach to dying is a gentle and laconic acknowledgement of the natural cycle of life and death. Beautifully shot in Arunachal Pradesh, and starring native talent from the Apatani tribe, an organic masterpiece.
