IFFI 2019 curates special section on Retrospective of New wave in Indian Cinema

The Golden Jubilee of International Film Festival of India, IFFI in Goa has curated a special section on the Retrospective of the New wave in Indian Cinema. The New Wave of Indian Cinema is one of the ways real life has been depicted on screen in many forms.

From late 1950s to the late 1970s, Indian cinema saw a new breed of filmmakers charting new territory. Mrinal Sen, Mani Kaul, Kumar Shahani, Shyam Benegal & Adoor Gopalakrishnan were its proponents. The narrative, style and budget were different compared to mainstream Bollywood.

12 films of this genre will be screened under the ‘India’s New Wave Cinema Retrospective’ in Goa. It opened with Ritwik Ghatak’s Bangla film Ajantrik & Meghe Dhaka Tara. Shyam Benegal’s Bhumika and Ankur, Mani Kaul’s Uski Roti and Adoor Gopalakrishnan’s Swayamvaram are among other movies to be screened at IFFI in this section.

The film Duvidha was screened at Maquinez Palace theatre today. More films from the new wave will continue to be screened this festival season. This retrospective in a way is an ode to the craft of these Indian filmmakers.
