Delighted that my short film 'For Each Other', part of the 'Neighbors' anthology is premiering at Pingyao IFF today. This is even more special as my favorite filmmaker @Jia_Zhangke is the Executive Producer of the films. My best wishes to my fellow #BRICS filmmakers. pic.twitter.com/0IePTg2HOT— rima das (@rimadasFilm) October 17, 2019
