Silent Indian film on rape, White , set for Melbourne fest

Thursday - June 14, 2018 1:52 pm , Category : ENTERTAINMENT
New Delhi June 14 (IANS) After being showcased in Cannes and Vienna filmmaker Aneek Chaudhuri s "White" -- a silent film on rape -- has now been selected for the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) 2018 says the movie s director.
The film was earlier screened in the market section of the Cannes Film Festival on May 11 and in the official section of the Indian Film Festival in Vienna earlier this month. IFFM is due to take place in August.
"White" combines three tales about three women who have suffered rape but fight back to lead normal lives.
"Rape is an issue that is universal. No verbal language is enough to decode the pain and suffering. Moreover I wanted a global approach and I believe that a silent film would take away any kind of language barrier from the film. This in turn would make it approachable by a wider spectrum of audiences across the globe " Chaudhuri said in a statement.
"Since White is an independent venture aimed at film festivals of course we would like to earn more laurels and the Melbourne inclusion is a huge booster for the team."
