Mamlakat's beautiful mid-summer's night's dream turns ugly and adventurous.

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Fonds Sud, a French program that aims at supporting films from the "South", Alliance Francaise Of Hyderabad and the Hyderabad Film Club, in collaboration with the French Embassy in India, is presenting a collection of nine films coming from Africa, Asia and the Latin America.

The past 20 years of the Fonds Sud program have been dedicated to the 260 filmmakers that it supports. These artists have surmounted obstacles with their talent and fighting spirit, in order to capture their dreams.

This is a story of the beautiful young Mamlakat, who dreams of Shakespeare, an acting career, and an escape from her obscure dusty village of Far-Khar, lost somewhere between Samarkand and the desolate shores of the Caspian Sea.

But the fickle hand of fate touches her, and a rape which she remembers as a romantic moonlight seduction, leaves her pregnant and desperate, with no idea of the identity of the cowardly inseminator.

After a failed abortion attempt, she breaks the news to her father, setting in motion a madcap quest to restore the family honor. Father, daughter, and a crazy brother set out to find the culprit, crossing a land wilder than the Wild West, where Soviet authority has given way to a lawless chaos of bandits and militias. Misadventure follows misadventure, and surprise is the order of the day.

Artfully combining the absurd, the surreal, and the comic with the poignant and tragic, Luna Papa is a brilliantly executed film about fate, love, and escape from an impossible reality.
