ఎలాగూ గత కొన్ని నెలలుగా ఇక్కడే (బుకరెస్ట్) లో ఉంటున్నాను కాబట్టి ఈ చిత్రోత్సవంలో కొన్ని సినిమాలు చూసి వాటి గురించి నవతరంగంలో వ్యాసాలు ప్రచురించే ప్రయత్నం చేస్తాను. ఇక్కడ ప్రదర్శిస్తున్న సినిమాల్లో మన దేశం నుంచి కూడా ఒక సినిమా ఉండడం విశేషం. ఈ సినిమా Supermen of Malegaon అనే డాక్యుమెంటరీ చిత్రం.

ఈ సినిమా గురించి మరిన్ని విశేషాలు:

supermen‘Supermen of Malegaon’ follows a small group of people, deep in India’s hinterland, for whom the fantasy associated with film has become the currency with which they buy their sanity, the irrepressible nature of their spirit. Malegaon, tucked away near the heart of India geographically, is fraught with communal tension, under severe economic depression. Yet it houses a tiny film industry. Having begun with tributes, the industry now churns out quirky, low-budget, socially aware, notoriously funny spoofs. Their ambition has grown; they are ready to take on Superman. We follow them on this journey. At times funny, tragic, contemplative. Always warm and engaging.

In early 2007 she came across the Supermen of Malegaon and by October, they became the subject of her first full-length documentary film.
