Film Screening at The Flying Goat, Anjuna, Sunday June 26th 2022, 8 pm onwards

From sunshine and beaches, to rawa fried fish and delectable beef dishes, from cashews to feni and choriz to churches, from dense green forests to rivers as wide as the eye can see, its cheerful people and quaint, colorful houses with terracotta roofed porches signing off on the ultimate susegad life – India’s smallest state also happens to be most people’s favorite, its rich, vibrant, pluralistic and largely liberal culture attracting visitors of all kinds.

But does this ubiquitous “Goa for everyone” feeling really make you Goan? And how is Goa’s unique local culture being shaped by the many waves of immigration – past and present – that have passed through its lands? This weekend we explore such questions and more with a curated screening program featuring two locally made documentary films.

The Golden Fish by Avadhoot Potdar, Akanksha Gupta and Akshata Dalvi looks at Goa’s burgeoning casino industry and its impact on the local economy and community, whereas Bread & Belonging by Goan filmmaker Sonia Filinto, explores the relationship between food, culture and migration through the lens of Goa’s unique bread, pão. Both films address issues of migration, changing culture and the ever-present need to earn a living.

Join us on Sunday, 26th June 8pm onwards at The Flying Goat for an evening of cinema and conversation as we explore the evolving identity of a cherished land through local stories and perspectives. Limited seating available, call on +91 8828138632 to book your seats!
