The film which opened the 17th International Children’s Film Festival at Hyderabad last year and the Children’s Film Festival this year was also honoured with a special mention at the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival.
FILM SYNOPSIS: In this town, the sky is full of kites, and all the kids are obsessed with kite-flying. The kite, Kali, rules the skies. No one knows who flies Kali. No one can defeat Kali.
