A South Asian man fleeing persecution creates a new identity. His life changes after meeting an Australian woman in New York. Audience Award, Vesoul Asian Film Festival.
Identity, intolerance and displacement are the themes of this vital drama by Bangladeshi filmmaker Mostofa Sarwar Farooki (Television, SFF 2013; Saturday Afternoon, SFF 2019). Naveen has been forced to lie to survive since fleeing his homeland for New York. Sometimes he’s a Muslim, sometimes he’s a Hindu. Sometimes he’s Naveen, sometimes not. When Naveen meets Australian expat Cathy, he finds romance and the promise of a future with her in Sydney. But for how long can he hide the truth? Farooki’s incisive, engrossing and compassionate film boasts fine performances from multi award-winning Indian star Nawazuddin Siddiqui (Photograph, SFF 2019; The Lunchbox, SFF 2014) and Megan Mitchell in her feature debut.
