TOF are very proud to present, For Here Or To Go?, a US/Indian film set in A comedy drama originating from the Silicon Valley tech community. In this comedy directed by Rucha Humnabadkar, the protagonist finds himself unexpectedly battling the bizarre American immigration system.
Young Silicon Valley software engineer Vivek Pandit is poised to become a key hire at a promising healthcare startup, but when it transpires that his work visa has less than a year remaining, the offer disappears. Having learned the hard way about the flaws in his “it’s just paperwork” mentality, Vivek battles forces beyond his control to get his visa extended, and, along the way, his eyes are opened to the similar struggles of those around him. American in mind and Indian at heart, this is a contemporary story of ambition cultural displacement, as characterised by the vagaries of immigration status.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A session led by Simi Arora with writer-producer Rishi Bhilawadikar.
