gohandlynne

We may be wrapping SFIAAFF30 in San Francisco tonight, but we’re excited to head down to the South Bay for three more exciting days in San Jose!

This week, you may have noticed long lines snaking down the streets of Japantown and the Castro, so if you didn’t get to catch the following shows, many of which went to rush in San Francisco, you still have a chance! Head south for the weekend and send SFIAAFF30 off with a bang!

Abu, Son of Adam
Salim Ahmed / India / 101 min

India’s official entry to the 84th Academy Awards is a meditative story of the determination of an aging couple to perform the Islamic pilgrimage of Hajj. This simple yet revelatory cinematic experience unpretentiously explores virtue, loyalty, and devotion against the picturesque simplicity of rural Kerala.

ABU, SON OF ADAM is about the preparation for a voyage, a pilgrimage to Mecca by a poor Indian Muslim man and his wife. We see life in a small Kerala village, where everyone knows everyone, and faith runs deep. Abu sets his sights on purity first, trying to mend his relationships and clear his conscience even as he sells many belongings in an attempt to gather enough money to make the trip. He is a man who makes many personal sacrifices to hone his virtue; I was left with both an abiding respect for his choices, the power of human bonds, and also a sense of how much Abu’s piety – perhaps moral rigidity – has cost him.” – Ravi Chandra, CAAM Superfan
