- Dev Bhoomi: Land Of Gods is directed by Goran Paskaljevic
- The screening will be held next year in March
- It deals with social issues like gender inequalities, caste prejudices
The Hindi/Garhwali/ English film shot exclusively in the picturesque locale of Garhwal, is set in a Himalayan village and deals with social issues such as gender inequalities and caste prejudices.
Professor D.R. Purohit, who worked closely with the film unit as a researcher and script consultant for over a year, and then through its shoot in Dewal, Tuni, Jaagdhaar, Suraeetota villages in Guptkashi region feels, "If only the state government had risen to the occasion and taken the film to showcase the 'real' beauty of the Garhwal Himalayas, it could have served as a flagship for the Department of Tourism whose in-house production leaves much to be desired."
In this expanding global village and in times of social media it is never too late to make amends, and one hopes that Dev Bhoomi does put Uttarakhand on the map for national as well as international shoots too.
