An Indian film that opens in Indias most prestigious cinemas on Thursday, is going to be watched by at least one person for the first time, a queer film director says.
On Wednesday, IFC Films, a company that distributes and distributes independent films worldwide, announced that The Black Bird is the first film by the award-winning filmmaker and director Devadas Laxman, a filmmaker who has made many films, including a 2014 documentary film about gay rights in India.
In an exclusive interview with the Indian Film Commission, Laxmans mother and father, who live in the US, spoke of their son’s courage and courage to make a film.
The film, titled The Blackbird, tells the story of a woman who goes on a blind date with a man who is bisexual.
“The film is very personal,” Devadas said.
“We didn’t want the film to be a film about what people say and what they do to me.
We didn’t know what we would see, or what people would say.
So we chose to tell a story that is very honest and truthful, and very personal to me.”
In the film, the woman, who has been known as “Bharati”, meets an Indian man who was a victim of the violence and discrimination against gay people in India when he was young.
The filmmaker said that she had to travel to the US to meet the man in person in the hopes that the film would help him.
“I didn’t go to the U.S. to meet a man, I went to meet him,” she said.
She said that the filmmaker was extremely brave.
“It was very difficult to talk to him about it because he was a gay man who had to hide his identity,” she explained.
The Indian Film commission also announced on Wednesday that it had approved the film.
IFC, which is based in New York City, is the world’s largest distributor of independent films.
It also has an office in London.
The Blackbird has been nominated for the best feature category at the Sundance Film Festival and won the Best Documentary prize at the Cannes Film Festival last year.
The film has also won awards at the Toronto International Film Festival, Cannes International Festival, Sundance, Berlin International Film Fest, Berlin, New York Film Festival in the United States and Cannes Film Critics Awards in France.
It has also been nominated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, the National Film Board of Canada, the Society of Directors of Motion Pictures and Television and the International Academy of Art Directors.
