In fact, it is a miracle that it has continued, against all odds. Asian Film Foundation, headed by Kiran Shantaram, son of late V. Shantaram, remains the driving force, as does Sudhir Nandgaonkar, journalist and a bunch of teenage students pool in their res...

Flights

Director: Robert M. Herzog.
Based on an almost true but entirely surreal experience. In 1968, a college senior tries to finish his Harvard Law School Application, which would keep him from being draft bait, likely to fight in the Vietnam War. Fong and his roommates start making enormous paper airplanes, get stoned, set the planes on fire and launch them from a precarious roof. At the end of an intense, frenzied evening, a final decision propels Fong into an uncertain, potentially lethal future. Flights depicts the intense pressures of an era when ordinary rites of passage could have life and death consequences. It is a timely exploration of the impact of America at war, amidst a conflict between citizenship and morality.

The film-maker, in Thailand to deliver a series of talks organised by the International Peace Foundation, said “Bush was the most dangerous president in history,” because of his policy on ...
