London Indian Film Festival 2019 – Roundup

This year’s London Indian Film Festival (LIFF) showcased talents from all over South Asia, with a range of documentaries and movies which celebrate independent cinema. Dip into the Extraordinary Lives┬ástream with “This Shaking Keeps Me Steady”, or the best of Bengal with “Vinci Da”, or be uplifted with the movies in the Young Rebel strand like “Roohba” or “Bulbul Can Sing”. There are still opportunities to catch these films, the winner of the festival’s Audience Award, “Article 15”, is now on general release. Whatever you are after, there will be a film here which will appeal to you. (P.S. a personal recommendation from me, track down and watch Roobha, after watching Article 15 of course)
