Tanuja Chandra's English film, Hope and a Little Sugar, which premiered in the South Asian Iternational Film Festival in New York has been judged the best feature film of the festival. The film is produced by two independent film producers who contacted Tanuja after reading the script of the film.
Tanuja Chandra says, "This was a very adventurous and innovative collaboration between two groups that had never known each other, both motivated by the script and the impulse to make a film that spoke about some very important issues to a global audience. It was the best possible way for East and West to meet"
The film will be shown at a few more festivals before having a theatrical release world wide. The film in New York was appreciated by both, Americans as well as Indians abroad.
