The Village House

Achal Mishra
91 minutes


The astonishing debut feature from twenty-three-year-old writer/director Achal Mishra. THE VILLAGE HOUSE is a lovely, luminous and gentle portrait of a large extended Indian family over several decades as they gather at the matriarch’s rural home, following the inevitable rhythms of change, children moving away to the city and the inexorable decay of traditional village life.


"Achal Mishra uses nostalgia in an effectively artful way in Gamak Ghar, building a densely layered and brilliantly realized portrait of cultural erosion." - Film Inquiry
