Movie Review: 'Crossing the Void,' A Mother's Journey
By Mona Shah
"Crossing the Void," is a movie about cross-border conflict trickling into our own backyard, it is about forbidden love... but most importantly it is about a mother and a daughter bridging the distance of their hearts and minds.
The film is written and directed by Steven Liang, starring Abhisek Das, Ranjita Chakravarty, Sunny Moza, Nandini Minocha and Nathan C. Rahn.
Director Steven Liang discussed "Crossing the Void" in a recent interview:
Crossing the Void is about cross-border conflict trickling into our own backyard, it is about forbidden love...but most importantly it is about a mother and a daughter bridging the distances of their hearts and minds.
This movie was created to allow people to come together and benefit a local non-profit organization with a good cause. It celebrates and showcases local creativity and talent. The desired impact of Crossing the Void is to create a model for community-supported film making that gives back to the community.
This film is a cross-cultural phenomenon that has drawn overwhelming support from the local community and has attracted over 50 extremely passionate and talented volunteers who have clocked over 1800 hours. It is being considered by many as the positive "tipping point" in the growing "Sillywood" movement.
Festivities start at 3 p.m. with a tour of the Museum; the presentation starts at 3:45p.m. Seating is very limited so those who plan to attend are urged to reserve tickets in advance.
