2015 South Asian Film Festival: Therapy, Just Friends and Acceptance
The South Asian Film Festival will present a trio of short films: Therapy, Just Friends and Acceptance.
In Therapy, Raj is in love. He's about to embark on a sacred and beautiful journey with the love of his life. So what's the problem? His Punjabi mother. She's as stubborn as she is sweet. She's crazy in love...with her pind and she doesn't care who knows. Reluctantly Raj takes his mother to a traditional American counseling session.
Just Friends is about Kabir and Aliya, who have been best of friends since they can remember. They have always done everything together. Now they are at that age when everyone around them thinks that they are a couple. And if they aren't then they ought to be. The peer pressure, the "coolness" factor and his proximity to Aliya leads Kabir to consider the idea that maybe he and Aliya could be something more than just friends...
Acceptance is a 50-minute international film directed by Ryan Matthew Chan based on a true story about a scholar from India who lies about getting into Harvard. It’s a story about ambition, self-doubt, competition among friends and facing failure. It takes audiences into the world of elite international schools comprised of the world’s richest and most goal-bound kids.
