Machan [SB1 Saturday 3:45pm]

Machan Uberto Pasolini, United Kingdom/Italy/Germany/Sri Lanka

North American Premiere

Convinced that submitting a bogus application to the German Embassy is not the worst thing one can do, a group of young Sri Lankans set out to assemble the Sri Lanka National Handball Team from a mismatched collection of friends, colleagues,
creditors, policemen – anyone willing to stretch the truth in exchange for a one way ticket to the West. Based on a true story, Machan is the first film from The Full Monty producer Uberto Pasolini.
