Red Monsoon and interview with Eelum Dixit


My short review of the upcoming Nepali-language film Red Monsoon, accompanied by a q&a with director Eelum Dixit, has just been posted on the Asymptote blog. Here is an extract; the full piece can be found here.

Red Monsoon, a Nepali-language feature film directed by young Nepali filmmaker Eelum Dixit, will open in Kathmandu multiplexes in May. A select crowd of Lalitpur intelligentsia, myself included (I say this with my tongue firmly in cheek!) were invited to preview the film last week in the more intimate atmosphere of the refurbished 1920s-era Yalamaya Kendra complex.”
