“A Death in the Gunj” is set in the colonial town of McCluskiegunj in the winters of 1979. What starts as an uneventful family holiday takes a twist when the guests start playing with the spirits. It is nothing tangible but insinuates its way into the group until the holiday ends in an implosion, resulting in an unavoidable event.
In a directorial debut by Konkona Sensharma, A Death in the Gunj has had its world premiere at Toronto International Film Festival 2016 (TIFF). Here it also shared the stage with films like The Magnificent Seven, American Beauty, Snowden and La La Land.
The film has been shortlisted for the 21st edition of Asia’s largest Film Festival – Busan International Film Festival set from 6th to 15th of October.
It has also been selected as the opening film at the Mumbai Film Festival 2016, popularly known as MAMI. The 18th edition of this festival is set to run from October 20th to October 27th at Mumbai.
The film is set to release in India on 13th January, 2017.
