#TIFF15: A Look At Immigration In French Drama Dheepan

Anokhi Pulse TV Dec 01, 2015

Dheepan chronicles the tale of a young boy solider in a civil war ravaged Sri Lanka and his journey to France. 

Winner of the Palm D'or award at this year's Cannes International Film Festival, Dheepan is a powerful drama from French director Jacques Audiard as it follows a formal tamil tiger solider as he flees from the aftermath of the Sri Lankan civil war to persue a life in a Parisian suburb. 

Chronicling various struggles of the immigrant experience, Dheepan is a film that packs in a punch. ANOKHI PULSE TV speaks to the film's lead actor about the universal elements of the immigration journey and how the film reaches out to the diverse, global tamil population.
