Winter Shuffle Film Festival: Swades
Is home where the heart is?
Shuffle Festival is an initiative that’s redeveloping St Clement’s in East London. And it’s getting a Dickensian makeover complete with Christmas tree, comfy armchairs, and an array of cultural spectacles. Swades follows a man searching for clues to piece his life together as he moves between the US and the small Indian village where he was born. Laced with romance and a lush Indian soundtrack, this drama couples beautiful shots with a heart-wrenching story. Best available seating. Over 18s only.
"The slow-burning Swades requires a bit of patience from its viewers, but such an investment is a minimal expense when the payoff is richly rewarding."
