Dirty, Yellow, Darkness

WORLD CINEMA NARRATIVES

Well-educated Vishwa has a successful career in advertising and a beautiful wife, Samadi. But he suffers from severe obsessive-compulsive disorder. Vishwa fears his own urine—and that it’s contaminating everything around him. Unable to endure his eccentric and strange behavior, Samadi leaves him and moves in with her parents who strongly encourage her separation from Vishwa. Vishwa loses his job and descends into a life of prescription drug abuse. He reluctantly admits himself to a public mental hospital, knowing there will be heavy social consequences in a culture that greatly stigmatizes mental illness. Vishwa realizes he must take control of his illness or forever lose the woman he loves and must make the most difficult decision of his life.
