Director Bornila Chatterjee is in London and her film is not for the faint-hearted
A UK-INDIA production hits the London Film Festival on Saturday evening (October 7).
www.asianculturevulture.com met Bornila Chatterjee (pictured right), one of a new emerging breed of film director from India, yesterday at the festival tea.
We will have more on that soon, but earlier this year at the London Indian Film Festival at an industry event, the producers behind the film, Cinestaan, and the film’s British partners, spoke about how the film came to be made.
‘The Hungry‘ stars of one India’s best known actors Naseeruddin Shah and the story is an unflinching adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘Titus Andronicus‘ but set in modern India.
Here’s the story behind the making of ‘The Hungry‘
