Highlights of the week:
Picasso – March 19
Gandharva, a 7th grade student from a remote village in the Konkan belt of Maharashtra is selected for a National Painting Competition. The winner gets to travel to Spain — Picasso’s birthplace — to hone their skills. But entering the competition requires a fee that his parents cannot afford. With an ailing mother and a father struggling with debt and alcoholism, the chances of him being able to participate look slim.
Gandharva’s father Pandurang was once an accomplished stage actor, but his addiction now stands in the way of him performing, which was both his passion and a means to provide for his family. Will Pandurang be able to fight his demons and bring his art back to life — not for himself, but for his son?
