Delhi gangrape on 16th December based film by Deepa Mehta to be screened in Toronto : British director Leslie Udwin’s documentary film on December 2012 gang-rape in Delhi was banned from the telecast in India, the court order but famous Indo-Canadian filmmaker Deepa Mehta has now approached the same event in a piece that will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in next month September.
“Anatomy Of Violence” will be unveiled in the Master’s part of the carnival, among three debut film showcases globally. In a report declaring the showcasing of the film, TIFF reported it as a “devastating fictional dramatization of the lives of the attackers.”
The movie is an effort to “ponder what might have turned these men towards such a brutal assault. The film also dramatizes the essence of the young woman’s life, her parents, her friends and her aspirations and thoughts before the deadly assault,” they said.
The drama has a combo cast that comprises Indian actress Seema Biswas, Indo-Canadian actress Tia Bhatia and Indian actor Vansh Bhardwaj, latterly observed in “Udta Punjab”.
Coincidentally, this year’s version of TIFF stars the world debut of a documentary by Deepa Mehta’s sibling Dilip: “Mostly Sunny”. The plot is Canadian porn star-turned-Bollywood, Diva Sunny Leone.
TIFF marks that the film “asks what makes Sunny tick-tock, and explores the country of the Kama Sutra’s contradictory connection with sex”. Dilip Mehta was ecstatic that, for the first time, both siblings have a movie opening at the same Gala night.
His sister has been a regular and well-known member at TIFF. Her story, “Beeba Boys”, debuted at TIFF last year and observed the marvel of Indo-Canadian gangs in Vancouver and its neighborhoods. Her version of Salman Rushdie’s “Midnight’s Children” was similarly unveiled at TIFF.
This, though, is the first time Deepa Mehta will produce a piece that could be occupied in the documentary drama kind. It could fix this Oscar-nominated director’s most challenging outline yet.
