"World premiere of Ladhaki film Chuskit in Italy" - The Quint
"Chuskit By Priya Ramasubban Wins Gold At The 20th MAMI Film Festival" - Silverscreen
Priya Ramasubban has travelled the world for over fifteen years making films for international broadcasters like National Geographic and Discovery. She was one of 6 people, chosen to participate in a Screenwriter’s Lab organized by the National Film Development Corporation of India. There, she received an opportunity to evolve her story for 'Chuskit' under the mentorship of award-winning Dutch writer Jolein Laarman.
Sprightly Chuskit’s dream of going to school is cut short when she is rendered a paraplegic after an accident. She’s confined to life indoors in the company of her strict grandfather, Dorje. Chuskit continues to harbour hopes of school but Dorje tries to make her understand that school can’t handle her needs. As life at home gets harder, her battle with her grandfather intensifies. Caught between their struggle are Chuskit’s parents and her enterprising brother who want to respect the old world views that Dorje represents, but also want to keep Chuskit’s spirit alive. Chuskit will have to get her grandfather to yield or she will have to accept the reality he has chosen for her.
