Independent filmmaker Shankar Borua’s new film The Curiosity Shop will be screened at movie theaters in Assam starting from November 3, 2017. The film stars Upamanyu Boruwa, Debasmita Borgohain, Anupjyoti Choudhury, Krishna Sarma, Ribhu Ranjan Baruah, Stuti Choudhury, Imtinaro Longkumer, Bidisha Kashyap, Sumi Borah, Satya Doley, and Bhargavjyoti Bora, among many others.
‘The Curiosity Shop is an intricately woven narrative that exhorts us to adopt a girl child, asks us to pause and pay tribute to the American Baptist missionaries who saved the Assamese language from fading into oblivion, mesmerizes us with a colourful Mising Oinitom (Bihu) and eulogizes the beauty and grace of Sattriya, the 500-year old dance form inextricably linked to the Assamese identity,’ shares the filmmaker.
The movie also features a blues track written by Shankar Borua which has been sung by American singer Heather Christie.
