Abu (Father)

Arshad Khan (Pakistan / Canada / Japan / Saudi Arabia / Thailand, 2017, 80mins)

Filmmaker in Person! Deeply moving and smart, Arshad Khan’s outstanding documentary Abu is a quintessential immigrant story that captures the tumultuous journey of his family's move to Canada, from Pakistan, in the early 90s. Peppered with animations, snippets from Bollywood, and a treasure trove of home movie footage, Abu offers a complex and nuanced portrait of a family trying to hold on to one another in spite of all the challenges.

WHY WE RECOMMEND ADVANCE TICKETING? We recommend buying tickets online in advance as The New People Cinema has fewer seats than our previous venues, and some showings will surely sell out. Online tickets ($11/film) are cheaper than at-the-door tickets ($13/film), and passes can only be purchased online!

3rd i SF International South Asian Film Festival

3rd i’s 15th ANNUAL SF INTERNATIONAL SOUTH ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL
November 9-12, New People Cinema and Castro Theater, San Francisco
November 18, BlueLight Cinema, Cupertino

 

From art-house classics to documentary films, and innovative and experimental visions to next-level Bollywood: 3rd i Films is committed to promoting diverse images of South Asians through independent film. Come celebrate 3rd i's fifteenth anniversary this year, as the annual SF International South Asian Film Festival presents some of the best cinema from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Canada, Australia, and the USA.

 

This year’s festival captures the political zeitgeist of our times, offering reflections on the democratic process, the power of the vote, and on the legacy of political revolutions. Home movies become rich fodder for filmmakers, their celluloid memories resurfacing stories about family, immigration, and cross-cultural dialogue. Voices from the margins circulate through the program, centering women’s unsung labor, queer voices, and disappearing landscapes. As always the shorts program gathers an impressive range of local and international offerings, while Bollywood is served up two ways - neo-noir and classic camp.
