Gurvinder Singh – Anhey Ghorhey Da Daan AKA Alms for a Blind Horse (2011)

From nfdcindia.com:
Gurvinder Singh’s first Punjabi feature film Anhey Ghorhey Da Daan based on Punjabi novelist and Jnanpeeth Award winner Professor Gurdial Singh’s novel tries to bring to screen the effect that years of subordination can bring to struggling masses in the face of events spinning beyond their control.

The film was nominated as the Top Ten Best Films of the World in 2011 by the US Journal Film Comment!. Read More »
