Im Bobby serves up an unbidden but utterly delightful détournement of the classic Bollywood blockbuster Bobby (Raj Kapur, 1973), considered scandalous in its day for an eroticised treatment. Filmed on location in India, Im Bobby shoehorns the original films narrative into a half-hour long contraption of exaggerated zooms and bumpy edits, and recasts the adolescent roles with adorably awkward pre-teens. (Ioannis Mookas)

Will be shown together with A Man Called Nomad
