White Sun

Back to listing

When his father dies, Chandra must go back to the mountaintop village he left a decade earlier. Along with the past, tradition, and political tensions, he has to contend with a boy claiming to be his son, as well as his brother, who fought on the opposing side in the civil war. White Sun won the Interfilm Award in the Orizzonti section at the 2016 Mostra di Venezia.
