Last Days. Last Shot


Location: Redstone Theater

With Sumira Roy in person

Dir. Sumira Roy. 2017, 53 mins. Digital projection. Documentary. U.S. Premiere. In Hindi/Bengali/Bhojpuri with English subtitles. Life and death co-exist every day on the banks of the Ganges in Varanasi. Last Days. Last Shot tells the story of two people living in the ancient city. Vikram takes photos of the dead before their cremations as a last memento for family members. Dada was once a celebrated artist in Tokyo and runs a guesthouse with his Japanese wife. Elegantly told with a lighthearted playfulness, Sumira Roy’s debut documentary shows two contrasting views of life and death.
