India is the Kaleidoscope of multiple beliefs with vast potential for films

In an interaction with media in the 44th International Film Festival of India (IFFI)Pacho Velez, Director of film ‘Manakamana’ said that India is a very colourful country with multiple belief systems, hence has a lot of stories to be told through films. He said that his film ‘Manakamana’ takes us via a state-of-the –art cable car up and down one of the vast valleys of Trishuli in the Gorkha district of Nepal, where the famous Manakamana Temple attracts pilgrims and tourists from the world over. He said, the film boldly extends the ambitions of transcendental cinema by focusing on the amalgam of the sacred and the profane in everyday life.

In the same interaction, Mika Mattila, Director of Chinese film ‘Chimeras’ said that his film reflects on important questions of China’s modernization, at a juncture where its aspirations are at war with its traditional identity. He said, his film is a story of a budding photographer and an established contemporary artist depicting different colours of contemporary China under influence of west and east.
