in competition: A Billion Colour Story
Category: Feature Films | Duration: 115 min | Language: English
In a world plagued by mistrust, racism and violence, dejection and insecurity thrive. ‚A Billion Colour Story’ is about the hope, humanity and goodness that continue to exist during these dark times.
The film tells the story of a family of filmmakers. The parents sell their home to finance the project and work themselves to the bone to accomplish it. Parvi is a Hindu wife and mother to the 11-year-old Hari, smarter than most kids his age. His ever-optimistic Muslim father Imran has an unshakable belief in humanity and that it will overcome prejudice and hate.
When the family is forced to move into a much poorer and more intolerant neighbour, they themselves experience how current-day Indians are led to belief in the gulf between religions, intolerance and prejudice. In spite of this, they set about working on their film.
