Director Theja Rio / 2020 / India

In 1960s rural India, a village chief and his son resist the pressure of conforming to the new world of Christianity.

Transporting viewers to Nagaland, the mountainous region between India and Burma, the visually striking Angh is steeped in a society famed for its intricate tattooing rituals and headhunting practices. At once epic and intimate, this richly cinematic time capsule dramatises the conflicts between tradition and modernity, Indigeneity and colonisation, as well as the influence of faith in a culture’s preservation or erasure.
