CAAM Co-Presents: GANDU at the Oakland Underground Film Festival

CAAM will be co-presenting GANDU, a film by South Asian Director Kaushik Mukherjee, at the 3rd annual Oakland Underground Film Festival.

CAAM is thrilled to co-present GANDU at the Oakland Underground Film Festival. The 3rd annual Oakland Underground Film Festival (OAKUFF) will be held at the Grand Lake Theatre and NIMBY from Thursday September 22 through Saturday September 24th. This definitive East Bay festival features world-class, premiere, independent cinema, live music & performances, DJs, projection-art, food trucks, and beer.

Gandu is a young punk-rap visionary struggling with the meaninglessness of his life and stumbling from one embarrassment to another. He and his Bruce Lee-obsessed best friend embark on a psychedelic journey that leads them through all the passions of youth, from rage to desire. Boldly edited and cleverly told, this film has to be seen to be believed. Director Q (aka Kaushik Mukherjee) bridges an unpolished style with deft, confident cinematic skill. In the same way Antoine Doinel exploded on the scene in defiance of the cinema of quality, GANDU flies in the face of the bloat and pomp of Bollywood.

GANDU will be showing on Saturday September 24th
at NIMBY (8410 Amelia Street, Oakland CA, 94621
