Cinema House | Borders | Rapture (Rimdogittanga) by Dominic Sangma
In a village plagued by kidnapping fears, the church announces the arrival of a miraculous Virgin Mary statue along with a grim announcement from the village security head, Nengsal, who warns “ of an approaching apocalyptic darkness which will last for 80 days. Nothing will give light except for the Blessed Candles given by the priest”. Amidst this chaos, we follow Kasan, a 10-year-old boy suffering from night blindness, and his father, Nengsal. Through their perspective, we witness the village’s unprecedented challenges and the unintended consequences they inflict on their lives.
