  • Soul of Sand

    2010. India. Directed by Sidharth Srinivasan. With Dibyendu Bhattacharya, Saba Joshi, Avtar Sahni. A watchman and his wife living at an abandoned mine are exploited by their alternately unctuous and brutal landlord. Set in an out-of-the-way corner of the National Capital Region—a prized area of urban growth and development in “emerging” India—director Srinivasan’s scathing portrait of the politics of caste and money subverts the usual Bollywood melodrama formula with just a trace of the absurd. In Hindi; English subtitles. 98 min.
