About the movie
With every minute detail well-documented, Samkhok is an aide-mémoire of a unique indigenous way of life with a touch of the fragile human emotions of love and loss.
Aesthetically set in the backdrop of Ringui Village, Samkhok is woven around the family of a clan chief preparing the Feast of Merit (Maran Kasa), and the quest of the chief to avenge his son’s death. Through them, the movie intricately explores the bonding of a family, the complicacy of land ownership, the custom and rituals of the community and the distinct bond with nature.
Directed by AC Rinshing under the banner of Miwurlung Production in collaboration with NEFEC, cinematography by Sorenzan Vashum and written by Kahorrei AC, the movie will be also premiere at Delhi in the month of October. Pack with actions, the official trailer of the movie uploaded in YouTube has recieved much views and appreciations from the fans. Some commented that it is the Apolcalypto of Tangkhul.
