Dhokbu to be screened in Gangtok for second time

Gangtok, 14 Dec:

Award winning Lepcha film 'Dhokbu-The Keeper' is being re-screened for a week at Vajra Cinema Hall in Gangtok from 15 Dec onwards.

“Daily three shows of the movie will be screened at the theatre till 21 Dec. Many people could not watch the film when it was released earlier this year. That was the feedback we received. We are hoping for a good number of viewers this time. Plus, the festive season of Namsoong-Lossoong is starting and it is a good occasion for people to watch the movie,” says film director, Dawa Lepcha.

He informed about the recent success of Dhokbu which received recognition at the International Cult Film Festival held in Kolkata and has generated interest among the people.

It may be recalled that the 88-minute long film recently bagged the Golden Fox Award for Best Sound Design. Apart from the award, Dawa was also nominated in the ‘best director’ category for the film.

The show timings at Vajra Cinema Hall are scheduled for 11 a.m, 2.15 p.m and 5.30 p.m.
