“Chile is a capitalist country. There we make personal films. It is through films that we find our identity,” said Francisca Silva, director of the movie ‘Ivan’s Woman’ at the press meet organised as part of the 17th International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK) here on Thursday.

Francisca said that it was a real-life incident that prompted her to take the film. For ‘Ivan’s Woman’, she studied similar cases that had happened in Latin America and in her film she had tried to present a distinct tale in her own style.

Nitin Kakkar, director of ‘Filmistan’ said that his aim was to explore India-Pakistan relation through films as they acted as a connecting tool between the two countries. 

“My film was shot on a shoestring budget in 20 days. I give it as a tribute to Indian Cinema,” he said. Cheeka’s director M Adeyapartha Rajan, said that his debut feature film spoke of human bondage and emotions. The film was screened in the Indian Cinema Now section.
