Radio Azad presents the one time screening of the 2017 film SAAWAN. There will be a Q&A with the after the event. individual and group discounts are available online at http://www.saawandallas.eventbrite.com
Inspired by a true story of a disabled child, who is innocent, generous and most of all courageous.
This is a story of a people where poverty predominates, and the habitants live on a basic theory of “survival of the fittest”.
In the middle of this quintessential beauty, serenity and wilderness is a town that has been hit by a severe natural calamity. Saawan now has to face the callous nature and ignorance by all the characters of society all alone.
The tragedy of Saawan has brought together different characters on screen: an inspiring mother, a TV reporter, a common criminal, a child abductor, the cruel landlord and an ambivalent father.
These towering mountains, and intermittent gust of terrible winds across the mountains, haunt Saawan, but he has decided to fight to live for his family.
Saawan is a glimpse into the hope of tomorrow and is a lesson for many today that ignore such children during their daily walk of life.
