Birthday Celebration Will Be Off The Chain

Still from Anup Kurian film Manasarovar

The state of Kerala turns 50 this year.

In honor of the milestone, the Asia Society Washington Center, Sangeet Natak Academy and Indian government are throwing a wild party (And by that we mean they’re sponsoring a film festival).

Celebrating Kerala Cinema begins this weekend in Washington DC, and will run through March 18.

All films are in Malayalam–with English subtitles—and will be screened in the Freer Gallery’s Meyer Auditorium. Tickets are free, but show up an hour ahead of time to secure yours (limit two per person).

For a complete list of films shown at the Smithsonian, go here.
