In this charming romantic comedy, an Indian woman studying in Prague and a lonely New Yorker begin an unconventional correspondence through video letters - two strangers searching for human connection in a hyper-connected world. When their relationship deepens, they must decide whether or not to meet face to face. Winner of the Audience Award at the 2013 Slamdance Film Festival, HANK AND ASHA is a film about identity, longing, and the irresistible appeal of entertaining life's what-ifs.
“A classic tale of young love, told in the most unconventional of ways. Asha and Hank are bound by technology and separated by time zones; the mere fact they have never met face-to-face doesn't stop their growing friendship and budding infatuation. A modern take on a love letter correspondence, this student from India and New York filmmaker must figure out their future one video response at a time. Step out of the Park City cold and warm your heart with this charming romantic comedy.”
