Pahuna revolves around three Nepali children — a girl, a boy and an infant — who get separated from their parents, escape the Maoists agitation in Nepal and flee to Sikkim. The trailer reveals plenty of sweet moments as the three children bond together and make a new home for themselves. Shot in the most beautiful locations along the Himalayas, the trailer teases an incredibly moving film about children who learn to survive against all odds.
The film had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) last year. It was adjudged the Best Film (Jury Choice) and got a Special Mention by Professional Jury in The International Feature Film Category at SCHLINGEL International Children’s Film Festival in Germany.
Directed by Paakhi A Tyrewala and Produced by Purple Pebble Pictures, the film is scheduled to release on Dec.7th, 2018.
