Press Conference – Like Cotton Twines
Attended by 3 members, including the director. They expressed their thrill at the response they received here in Goa, at the International Film Festival of India. It has even motivated them to produce the next film in India, creating an Indo-African story.
Serendipity Art Festival – Let’s Talk
Serendipity Art Festival in association with The International Film Festival of India curated the Let’s Talk series. The topic of discussion was, “Is crass the new comedy?”
When does funny stop being funny and become distasteful? With the popping up of many comedy clubs, comedians and adult comedy movies, has the humour of yesteryear given way to cringe-worthy dialogues and shock-tactics that force us to be amused because of their absurdity? Should comedy be inoffensive and accessible to all to be acceptable?
Naved Khan, the famous Radio Mirchi RJ and Jeeveshu Ahluwalia were the panelists for this discussion.
