Hi Louis,

**

*SIDDHARTH *by acclaimed Indian-Canadian filmmaker Richie Mehta, opens
on June 27 THIS FRIDAY at Lincoln Plaza Cinemas. /Richie Mehta,
writer/director, and lead actress Tannishtha Chatterjee are in NYC
through Friday, 6/27 and available for interviews./

Inspired by a real life encounter the film's writer/director Richie
Mehta (AMAL) had in 2010 with a desperate man he met an on the streets
of India, *SIDDHARTH* details an impoverished father's attempts to find
his missing child, searching throughout the urban slums of India.

The film is a powerful statement about timely issues of global child
labor exploitation from a personal, complicated family perspective.

Thank you for your consideration,

Matt
