Tongues on Fire
The London Asian Film Festival
Land Gold Women
Shown at the East End Film Festival last year, and supported by Satrangi in the Festival beginning this week in London.
Land Gold Women (Directed by Avantika Hari, India 2010) is a disquieting exploration of a settled British Asian family, suddenly caught up in the mire of so called honour killings. This thought provoking film has won many accolades including Best Film in English Language, Indian National Awards; Official Selection in the prestigious Women’s International Film Festival (Miami 2010) and many more….
Set in the UK, and with a British cast, it features Satrangi Associate actor Narinder Samra in a riveting lead performance: ‘Narinder Samra portrays a silent anger that could erupt at any moment. His acting is frightening, for all the right reasons.’
UK Feminista magazine
Tragically, Land Gold Women has not -despite it’s performance on the World Film Festival circuit- been able to secure a distributor, so I really hope that you will make a special effort to support it at this Tongues on Fire Festival screening.
It screens on
Monday 21st March
At the Apollo London

Land Gold Women is one of a series of groundbreaking and thoughtful films that are featured in an impressive Festival line up at Tongues on Fire Festival, which mirrors not only the continued innovation and a growing maturity within Indian mainstream and regional cinema but equally with collaboration and representation from the South Asian Diaspora, affirms that South Asian cinema is now truly a genre/geography defying force!
