It’s the time of year when I get to pretend I’m hard done by; slaving away in darkened cinemas, gorging on the finest films the Times BFI 52nd London Film Festival has to offer. The upside to my valiant sacrifice is that I’m a sharing kinda guy:

Nandita Das has had a successful career as an actor, staring in over 30 features, but the events of the 2002 Gujarat riots and subsequent violent fallout for both the Muslim and Hindu communities, inspired her to step behind the camera for her debut feature Firaaq.

Firaaq chronicles the devastating impact on vulnerable Muslims in Gujarat after riots.

    Firaaq is the directorial debut of eminent Indian actress Nandita Das, which deals with the impact of
    violence on human psyche and relationships. Firaaq has been selected in the Contemporary World Cinema Premiere slot.
    Nandita Das had shown her charisma at TIFF several times, last year her two films witnessed at TIFF – Santosh Sivan’s
    “Before the Rains” and Adoor Gopalkrishnan’s “Nallu Penangal” and both were highly acclaimed,
    but this year she is excited as her directorial debut will be premiered at TIFF.
