The Northwest Film Center revealed the 42nd Portland International Film Festival lineup. This year’s Festival begins on Thursday, March 7th and will run through Thursday, March 21st.
NAME OF FILM: MAYA
DIRECTOR(S): Mia Hansen-Løve
STARRING: Roman Kolinka, Aarshi Banerjee, Alex Descas
GENRE: Drama Film
SYNOPSIS: Across a remarkably contemplative range of work—including Goodbye First Love, Eden, and Things to Come—Mia Hansen-Løve has conjured visceral points of entry into philosophical themes; in Maya, she thoughtfully probes the private intricacies of rehabilitation. Four months after he was taken hostage in Syria, war journalist Gabriel (Roman Kolinka, Things to Come) returns home to France. Still coping internally with his trauma, Gabriel unmoors himself from now-alienating familiar faces and decamps to India, where he spent his childhood. While staying at his family’s old house in Goa, he strikes up a rapport with his godfather’s daughter, Maya (Aarshi Banerjee), who, feeling out of place, recently dropped out of school in London. As the two bond over their mutual restlessness, Hansen-Løve gently questions whether Gabriel’s self-imposed, ever-moving isolation truly constitutes healing. With Alex Descas and Johanna ter Steege.
