With director Bash Mohammed in person

Dir. Bash Mohammed. 2017, 84 mins. DCP. Narrative. International premiere. In Malayalam with English subtitles. With Dinesh Prabhakar, Laya Krishna. Deep in the tropical forests of south India, Prakasan (Dinesh Prabhakar) decides to leave his seemingly idyllic life for a government job in the big city. Despite warnings from friends and family, Prakasan makes the long trek and is immediately shocked by the language and customs of everyone he meets. Still committed to being successful in his new surroundings, he is further tested when he learns his job is to educate sex workers. Director Bash Mohammed’s second feature, Prakasan is a wryly funny, touching, and timely story on migration from the village to the city.
