Mohammad Samad, Naresh Kumar, Bhura / Fiction / Hindi

A charming and intriguing kids’ film from India. Gattu is an orphan, being raised as an apprentice, but he can’t concentrate on his work because he’s obsessed with kite-flying, and in particular with defeating the mysterious Kali, whose black kite rules the skies. To keep his supply of kites, Gattu is prepared to steal, lie – and even go to school, if absolutely necessary…
