The IFC Center in New York has held the theatrical premiere of Bombay Movie on April 15th and the film has simultaneously benefited from a digital launch across popular VOD platforms such as Itunes, Google Play, Amazon Instant Video, Playstation and Xbox Video through online distributor Filmbuff.
Alexandra Eaton's documentary follows Raja Menon, an independent filmmaker passionate about making a film in India's city of dreams: Bombay. Inspired by his watchman to produce a story about the working poor, he undertakes the making of the independent and acclaimed film Barah Aana (starring Naseeruddin Shah, Vijay Raaz and Arjun Mathur). Bombay Movie explores Menon's and his team's brave passion for film making against all odds. As the release of their film approaches, the challenge remains immense: How to convince someone who sees extreme hardship everyday pay the high price to see it fictionalized on screen in Barah Aana? Raja Menon toils to make a love letter to a city and its silent working class.
