Film screening: Marathon Boy


The film fillows Budhia Singh, a four-year-old East Indian slum boy who captures the attention of a nation as he begins training for an Olympic future. After the young boy's popularity grows and monetary prizes result from his achievements, the government turns its attention to his coach, Biranchi Das, and his motivation for training Budhia. The true story, which provides a unique insight into a modernizing country's impoverished masses, rivals a fiction plot for its dramatic effect and heart-pounding course of events.
