door Arun Karthick, Rinkel Film (NL), Stray Factory (IN), Magic Hour Films (DK), Harman Ventures (IN), Uncombed Buddha (IN), Cent Percent Films (IN)

Winnaar IFFR 2020 NETPAC Award

Trailer

Nasir' comprehends the peaceful anonymity of the lives of small people but also, more sorrowfully, the vengeful and arrogant anonymity of the mob. It tells the tragic story of Nasir, the middle-aged street salesman, who belongs to the Islamic minority and who lives with his mother Fatima, his wife Taj and his cousin Iqbal in the densely populated ghetto. Nasir’s chronicle emerges through the detailed observation of his vicinity over the span of one particular day. As his day unfolds we find him to be a nimble romantic, marshalling a love of love, song, children, friendship, and even God to rise into something resembling a life well lived. But the increasing communal bigotry has other plans. Based on the novel by Dilip Kumar.
