But these two kindly grandmothers were born in the bustling city of Rivne—then in Poland, now in Ukraine. In 1941 20,000 Jews lived in Rivne, but when the German Wehrmacht and the Waffen SS stormed into town, they planned on murdering every Jew they could find. How Shelly and Raya survived the massacre is a story they tell themselves, not long after they visited Rivne in 2013.

Let's Dance To The Rhythm


Director  Bardroy Barretto

  • India



The bitter sweet relationship between a young singer and her musician mentor set against the backdrop of the jazz clubs of Bombay and the musicians from Goa during the 60s.

In the 1960s Lawry a young Goan musician playing in the nightclubs of Bombay, returns to Goa to find a singer for his band where he meets Dona. While Lawry moulds the impressionable young Dona into a talented singer, they fall deeply in love. The emotional rollercoaster of a love story is destined to tragedy.

The film weaves its lilting narrative through 20 timeless songs
Based on actual events this quasi-biographical film is a tribute to one of Goa’s greatest, yet barely acknowledged legacy - its musicians, who once upon a time set the jazz clubs of Bombay on fire and actually shaped the music of Bollywood cinema.
Nachom-ia Kumpasar is a nostalgic musical tale set in the times these musicians lived and died in - unrecognized, unappreciated…and unsung.

Badly injured, he collapses by a stream which carries the city’s trash after each storm. There he is found by a group of poor kids who have to collect trash to make a living.

Once Mario finds out that Juan´s father is Ricardo, a classmate who he hasn´t seen since the end of high school, he and Jose are more determined than ever to face many dangers in order to recover Juan and take him back home to his parents.
