The Nepali film ‘A Road To A Village’ has been chosen for the 48th Toronto International Film Festival. On Thursday, the production team released a press release informing the public of the choice.
The Toronto edition will run from September 7th to 17th. In the Naveen Subba-directed film, which is set in the Rai caste’s social background, an effort has been made to examine the ups and downs in the connection between father and son after the road is opened in the village.
