D. Pan Nalin | M | New Zealand/India
When 19 year old Eva fails to return home to New Zealand from India, her estranged parents Carl (David Wenham) and Julie (Sia Trokenheim ), must reunite to find her. Their journey takes them from coastal Auckland to the chaos of New Delhi and on to idyllic Himalayan villages, where hash smoking ex pats are tight lipped and local police offer little help.
Desperate to find Eva, Carl’s misreading of the local culture leads to a young woman being imprisoned. Old wounds and betrayals between husband, wife and daughter are exposed, and Carl begins to realize that he may be responsible for driving Eva away.
A striking tale of reconciliation and unconventional adventure, filled with spectacular vistas, this compelling drama also stars Chelsea Preston Crayford, and the legendary Emmanuelle Beart. From Samsara director, Pan Nalin, Beyond the Known World is a visually stunning and richly emotional journey into a fascinating land.
