A glimpse into Ladakhi cinema
An interesting look into the unknown territory of Ladakhi cinema. Written by Neha Bhatt, Business Standard.
Loudspeaker fixed on top, a Maruti Omni drives through the town of Leh, blaring an announcement that echoes in the valley. The announcement brings news of Ladakh’s latest and most expensive local film, LAS-DEL. The poster of the movie, pasted on the van’s windscreen, features the face of Ladakh’s most sought-after actress, homemaker Stanzin. Later in the day, hundreds queue up outside the only theatre in town, the community hall where LAS-DEL will be screened, running house-full three shows a day.
