Nov 4: Program 4 – International Spotlight: The Last Smile
(Drama Feature) How deep, and how far, does a father’s love go—especially if he has nothing left to lose? Eponymously based on Jeevan Zutshi’s book and inspired by true events, our INTERNATIONAL SPOTLIGHT feature THE LAST SMILE from Indo-American director Shankey Srinivasan follows a bereaved father, as his grief drives him to seek justice and defend lives. Coming from conflict-torn Kashmir, India to build a more prosperous life in America, only to lose his upwardly mobile son Amit at the age of 30—Kapil is compelled to discover the truth behind his otherwise healthy son’s sudden, unexplained death, even if that means going up against a multi-billion-dollar company, and exposing the shady politics behind America’s unregulated health industry.
