Malayalam film Swapaanam, directed by veteran filmmaker Shaji N Karun, has been selected for the prestigious Hanoi International Film Festival, scheduled to be held in Hanoi from November 23-27, 2014.

The movie, which depicts the pangs and dilemma faced by a master percussionist, will be screened in the competition section of HANIFF, Karun said.

Swapaanam is an exploration of the emotional psyche of a percussion artist and his quest for love and art in life. Well-known actor Jayaram, a skilled percussionist himself, has played the hero in the movie that has garnered critical applause in different film festivals in and outside the country.
