Featuring a heartbreaking
MAN PUSH CART tells the story of Ahmad (Razvi)
Ahmad's is a harsh, often humiliating life, but he carries on with a stoic dignity and sensitivity, determined to find his way in New York City. The dull routine of his life is brightened by two developments: the arrival of a young Spanish woman (Leticia Dolera) who works down the street in a newspaper kiosk; and an offer of assistance from a wealthy fellow Pakistani (Charles Daniel Sandoval), who remembers Ahmad's former life as a rock star.
Beautifully observed, MAN PUSH CART is a subtle and technically accomplished film, wholly original in subject, location and characters. It is a haunting and insightful feature that gives a revealing picture of one of New York's hidden communities and features strong central performances and stunning photography. MAN PUSH CART is written and directed by Ramin Bahrani and is a Noruz Films production.
