Dir: Paresh Mokashi. India. 2014. 90 min. Marathi with English subtitles.
A tender, moving tale of compassion, friendship and childhood at its best, Elizabeth Ekadashi captures the story of two siblings, Dnyaana and Zendu, and their love for their prized possession—Elizabeth, a beloved bicycle handcrafted by their late father. Set in the pilgrim town of Pandharpur in Maharashtra, Elizabeth Ekadashi follows the siblings after the bank repossesses their mother’s precious knitting machine and Elizabeth must be sold in order to reclaim it. With high hopes and endless optimism, Dnyanesh and Zendu sneak out to the streets and devise a plan to raise the money on their own.
