Highway (Ek Selfie Aarpar)
With director Umesh Kulkarni in person
Presented in collaboration with the New York Indian Film Festival
Dir. Umesh Kulkarni. 2015, 137 mins. DCP. In Marathi with English subtitles. With Mukta Barve, Sunil Barve, Tisca Chopra. This unconventional road movie is set entirely on the Mumbai-Pune expressway. A kaleidoscope of characters are in a hurry to reach their respective destinations, but a traffic jam causes their lives to intersect in unexpected ways. A large ensemble cast and an experimental shooting style distinguish this latest effort by Umesh Kulkarni, who has led a Marathi film renaissance with deeply nuanced portraits of people from all roads of life.
