Synopsis

A rainy night in Kolkata. Amid the downpour a group of addicts filters through the city in search of brown sugar, an impure form of heroin, desperate to get their next fix. Their trajectories mingle and diverge by happenstance, taking unexpected turns as they ceaselessly seek an unachievable high.

Framed in chiaroscuro compositions, “Cat Sticks” is the first feature film from fine-art photographer Ronny Sen, whose personal struggles with drug addiction fuel an affectionate and loose-limbed portrait of surreal spaces, ominous landscapes, and marginalized lives in the Indian metropolis.

Ursula Grisham
