Assamese film ‘Aamis’ to be Premiered at Tribeca Festival


Assamese film Aamis (Ravening) will be premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, which will be held between April 24 and May 5 in New York City. Directed by Bhaskar Hazarika, Aamis is among the 103 films that will be screened at the 18th edition of the festival. Aamis is Bhaskar Hazarika’s second film after the acclaimed ‘Kothanodi’. This film is about the relationship between a woman and a younger man.

The Story of Aamis

Amis is the story of Nirmali, a married Paediatrician in her late 30s, leads a peaceful but joyless domestic existence in Guwahati, Assam. Her husband, a senior Doctor, spends most of his time doing relief work in surrounding areas, leaving her alone at home to take care of their son. One day, she meets Sumon, a young PhD student researching food habits in northeastern India, who warms up to her in a manner she seems unaccustomed to.

Sumon’s work exposes him to the belief that there’s no kind of food that can be considered abnormal, and Nirmali is drawn to this idea. The two quickly discover that they have a shared love for food – specifically, meat. Together, they bond over meals comprising unusual meats on platonic dates, although Sumon longs for some sort of physical contact. As Nirmali’s tastebuds grow more adventurous, their relationship takes a dark and bizarre turn.

The cast includes satriya dancer Lima Das and Arghadeep Baruah. The film has been produced by Poonam Deol from Signum Productions, Shyam Bora from Metanormal Motion Pictures and Wishberry Films. Neetali Das, Manash Das and Sagar Saurav are also playing important roles.
