National Award Winning (India’s highest film honour) Director Kranti Kanadé brings his new film to US. Set in the world of College Theater, CRD probes fascism and fierce competition in arts. India’s leading critic Namrata Joshi says, “Kanadé breaks all rules of filmmaking in creating CRD, which boldly goes where no Indian film has gone before.” Other critics around the world are calling it "Brilliant, subversive, charming and fearless." "This astonishing film heralds the arrival of a bold new voice in world cinema where all limits are breached and boundaries crossed. Be prepared for a breathtaking journey, the likes of which you've never been on before."

A young Dramatist rebels against his fascist Tutor to form his troop of misfits - aiming to win a prestigious theatre competition and trying to find the hardest thing of all: his voice. Inspired by real life event 'Purushottam' in Pune, India.­

This groundbreaking film creates an idiom that has no predecessor in Indian cinema. With images that are as beguiling as they are stunning, it is a heady cocktail of bravura performances, socio-politically inspired screenwriting, stylish cinematography and filmmaking choices as unpredictable as they are hilarious, thrilling and bonkers. The director’s blissful disregard for convention and his embrace of experimentation bring to mind the masters of the French New Wave.

"Allusive, elusive and by turns funny, romantic and tragic, Kranti Kanadé's CRD is a film tuned to the pitch of the artist's heart." - (Danny Bowes, L.A. Weekly)
