IFFI aims to cherish India’s rich cinematic heritage

The IFFI aims to cherish India’s rich cinematic heritage and share it with new audiences.

Introducing to them the glories of the past, the Restored Classics Section aims to showcase great films made by Indian filmmakers.

Two pioneering movies have been restored by Martin Scorsese Film Foundation.

One is by world-renowned dancer Uday Shankar, Kalpan – a film about dance. The story revolves around a young dancer’s dream of setting up a dance academy, a reflection of Shankar’s own.

He founded an academy at Almora where he invented his unique dance form. Entirely shot as a dance ballet and fantasy, Kalpana was the first film to present an Indian classical dancer in the lead.

The other film is by one of the most talented Bengali directors, Ritwik Ghatak. He was a part of the famed Ray-Ghatak-Sen Troika whose films propelled the New Wave in post-independence India.

Ritwick Ghatak’s Titas Ekti Nadir Naam will seek to delight audiences.
