2015 USA Film Festival: Meet the Patels
You want to meet the Patels of this film – siblings Ravi (a Los Angeles-based actor), sister Geeta (co-filmmaker with Ravi), and their animated and hilarious parents Champa and Vasant, who have been happy together for 35 years the result of an arranged marriage. The clever, charming and poignant film follows first-generation Indian-American siblings Ravi and Geeta as they document the many attempts (by many people) to find a wife for 29-year-old Ravi through traditional Indian means.
Ravi has a foot in both worlds, and has just broken up with his first real girlfriend, Audrey, a Connecticut-bred redhead whom Ravi has kept secret from his parents for two years. The end result is a great journey and a home movie that everyone can love.
Filmmakers will be in attendance.
