‘The Crow’s Egg’ at Casula Powerhouse

By June 18, 2015 Events

Sydney Film Festival returns to Casula Powerhouse on Friday 3 July for the fifth instalment of it’s monthly program with The Crow’s Egg.

This enchanting tale is suitable for children eight years and up. The film follows two slum dwelling children on a quest to try pizza for the very first time.

“The Crow’s Egg is an enlightening and adventurous tale the whole family will enjoy, with beautiful characters, colourful scenery and great humour,” said Director of Casula Powerhouse Kiersten Fishburn.

The film tells the story of two mischievous brothers who live in poverty in a Chennai slum. When a pizza parlor replaces their playground, the two carefree boys become consumed with desire to taste this magical dish called ‘pizza’. Realising that one pizza costs more than their family’s monthly income, they begin to plan ways to earn more money, inadvertently setting in motion an adventure that involves the entire city.

In the South Indian language, Tamil, with English subtitles, the film is the debut feature of director M. Manikandan. It was the only Indian regional entry at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it received a standing ovation at its world premiere.
