SYNOPSIS

Come Over for a Drink, Kanchhi is an empathetic portrayal of an indigenous community of farmers and brewers from east Nepal, where the untold stories, the sorrows, and the loneliness of the female protagonists have led to a high degree of alcoholism. The film is the director's confrontation with her indigenous culture and its beliefs.

PROGRAM NOTE

Come Over for a Drink, Kanchhi asks questions about the “beginning” and “end” of four people's stories about liquor, as it captures the beginning and the end of homemade liquor production. Although NiNi, MuMa, NaNa, and CHHEEMA have different stories, it seems obvious that the only way to find a compensatory solace for them is with alcohol. They know that life in this barren place is just times to share drinks, sing songs, laugh, and chat together. The last line “come over for a drink,” leaves a lot to think about. [MIN Jeeyeon]
