The Odia film ‘Indradhanura Chhai’ will be screened at the 19th Festival Internationale des Cinemas d’ Asie (FICA), to be held in Paris from February 5 to 12.

The internationally-acclaimed film directed by Susant Misra and produced by Jugal Devata will be part of a contingent of 10 Indian films at the festival, including Satyajit Ray’s ‘Agantuk’, Guru Dutt’s ‘Mr&Mrs 55’ and Uday Shankar’s ‘Kalpana’, to mark 100 years of Indian cinema.

 “The film reflects the traditional structures of social and family life of a small town in India that are affected by urbanisation in the country. Three generations of women see their perception of human nature to evolve, as their personal relationships. In their loneliness, they face problems of tradition, culture, religion and manage gender relations,” said Misra.

 ‘Indradhanura Chhai’ was in the Un Certain Regard sectiona of Cannes Film Festival in 1995 and won the top prize at the Sochi International Film Festival in Europe. It was also the closing film of the Indian section ‘Indomania’, organised the same year by the modern art gallery Jeu de Paume in Paris to celebrate 100 yearas of World Cinema, Misra added.
