Director Bauddhayan Mukherji is very happy as his film Marichjhapi will now be part of Cannes Film Festival 2020 which is scheduled to be held from May 12 to 23. The film is included in the list of Cine foundation's elite L’Atelier program and it will run from May 14-21.
“Now I can exhale... Marichjhapi going to Cannes is now public knowledge. Thank you @Cinefondation for this incredible honour. #marichjhapi @_AdilHussain,” Bauddhayan Mukherji tweeted.
The film Marichjhapi stars Adil Hussain. The film is about the real events of January 1979, where refugees on Marichjhapi island, located in the Sundarbans delta, wake up to find police boats surrounding their island. Over the next three months, the refugees were tear-gassed, their huts and fisheries destroyed, women raped, houses burnt, and they are fired upon in the middle of the night. And through all of this, relationships flourish and love blossoms.
The film was appreciated by many and was critically acclaimed. The film was part of many national and international film festivals.
