Benefit Concert for Kerala Floods, Scarborough, ON

The state of Kerala, in southern India was affected by the worst flooding experienced in a century. Nearly 1000 people have died and nearly 1 million people were displaced in shelters this past August 2018. While crisis relief organizations and governments have supported with urgent care and donations, families are still devastated with the losses from the floods and more support is needed to help rebuild the damage.

Kerala is a land rich in cultural history and traditions. From music to dance to Ayurveda, the people from this state have shared their cultural heritage around the world. In this, we would like to offer a musical evening to raise awareness and donations to help rebuild Kerala.

Through a mix of home videos, interviews with her family, letters, and animated sequences from Pandi’s last script, Ponnambalam uncovers Pandi’s struggle with bipolar disorder throughout the final phase of his life.

In English and Tamil with Tamil subtitles and closed captioning in English. 

Question & Answer (Q & A) with the filmmaker will follow, with both American Sign Language (ASL) and Tamil interpretation.
