Can you tell us what's Holi is all about and what your film aims at showing here ? 

Holi is one of my favorite festivals in India where people come together and play with color. However, there has been an old tradition which doesn't allow widows to wear colors. They are supposed to wear white clothes for the rest of their lives after their husband died, especially in small towns like Veranasi where the festival takes place. It is rather sad and I take it as a comfort zone : how could someone not be allowed to touch color. Things suddenly changed recently. I've read an article in March saying they would be allowed to wear colors for the first in 2013. This lead to the idea of making this movie.  

A special evening during the ASVOFF Festival at le Point Perché , which brought together many leading figures from the worlds of fashion, art and film around Manish Arora’s first short film, backed by The Absolut Company in India. Soon available in the journal, an exclusive interview with Manish Arora...
