Each year, the PSIFF screens India's foreign
language Oscar submission, and this year is
no exception
Nagesh Kukunoor's Lakshmi has already
been appreciated even before its release.
Now, to add one more feather to the film's
cap, Lakshmi is going to premiere in US at
Palm Springs International Film Festival
2014 even before opening in India.
Nagesh has directed the film and plays the
part of a ruthless pimp in the movie.
Lakshmi depicts the victimization of a 14-
year-old girl (Monali Thakur) who is sold
into the sex trade. Kukunoor said that he
was inspired to make the film when he
visited some NGOs in India and met victims
of human trafficking there.
Along with Lakshmi , Gyan Correa's The
Good Road has a fixed slot in the fest. Other
Indian films of note expected to screen are
Vikramaditya Motwane's Lootera ; Canadian
filmmaker Richie Mehta's coming-of-age
urban tale Siddharth and Pan Nalin's Faith
Connections, a documentary set during the
Kumbh Mela that winds together several
stories, such as one about a runaway boy
and another about a sadhu who discovers an
abandoned baby and decides to raise it.
The 2014 Palm Springs International Film
Festival will be attended by Julia Roberts,
Sandra Bullock and Matthew McConaughey
as well as by filmmakers such as Steve
McQueen ( 12 Years a Slave), John Lee
Hancock ( Saving Mr. Banks) and other
industry leaders.
