'The Good Road' to be screened at Harvard University

Mumbai, Dec 6 : Gujarati film "The Good Road", India's official submission for the foreign language film category at the 86th Academy Awards, will be screened at Harvard University's Cambridge campus in Massachusetts, US.


A production by the National Film Development Corporation (NFDC), the film will be shown Dec 9 at Harvard University's South Asia Institute (SAI). The film's director, Gyan Correa, will interact with the audience at the screening.

It will be an academic event held for the Harvard faculty, students and affiliates who have an avid interest in films, said a statement from NFDC.

The event will begin with Vikram Khanna, a professor at the Harvard Law School currently teaching a course on the Indian entertainment industry, sharing a quick introduction on the film followed by the screening. The event will conclude with an interactive question-and-answer session between Correa and the audience.

SAI is a university-wide effort to advance teaching and research at Harvard through scholarly exchange among faculty and students, South Asian scholars, visiting academics and public officials from South Asia.

It facilitates outreach activities such as seminars, lectures and symposia engaging academic, governmental and business leaders to discuss challenges and opportunities facing the region.
