The Black Hen

Stranger Says:

Two boys in 2001 Nepal try to find a beloved pet chicken as their life swirls around them, upended by a Maoist insurgency. The film’s centerpiece is the frustration and despair of war as experienced by blameless, uninvolved children. Balancing political depictions and commentary with the innocence of childhood, The Black Hen is an unassuming and powerful drama. (JULIA RABAN)
