That Girl In Yellow Boots
Director: Anurag Kashyap
Cast: Kalki Koechlin, Naseeruddin Shah and Gulshan Devaiya
Synopsis: The film that premiered at the Venice Film Festival and also screened at Toronto International Film Festival, is the story of Ruth, a British woman who comes to Mumbai in search of her long-lost father — a man she hardly knew but cannot forget. Without a work permit and desperate to make ends meet, Ruth takes up a job at a massage parlour but soon gets involved with the seedier side of the city. Although the money is good, she soon starts questioning her morality. Torn between several schisms, Mumbai becomes the alien yet strangely familiar backdrop for Ruth’s search. She struggles to find her space even as she is sucked deeper into the labyrinthine politics of the city’s underbelly. A city that feeds on her misery, a love that eludes her and a devastating truth that she must encounter.

Synopsis: The film has been showcased at a number of film festivals before getting a worldwide release. The story centres around four college students on a field trip to learn more about the American Indian Trail of Tears. While traipsing through the woods, they stumble upon an Indian burial mound that marks the burial site of a Native American family that died on the trail. The mound was cursed by a distraught family member, and whoever disturbs it unleashes trouble and winds up lost in a maze, terrorised by an unknown force.
