Festival goers will have other chances to view works by Wajda, as six of his films, including “Ashes and Diamonds”, “Conductor”, “Hunting Flies”, “Landscape after the Battle”, “Man of Marble” and “Man of Iron”, will be included in a retrospective. Director Ritwik Ghatak will also be receiving a retrospective of his films at the festival.
Throughout the week the festival will also be screening short films—five minutes or less—that specifically hold Mumbai as their subject. This short film section, entitled “Dimensions Mumbai”, is the first of its kind for the festival.
The festival will include many notable highlights, including Romanian director Christian Mingui’s “4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days”, as well as Naomi Kawase’s “Mourning Forest”, which took home the Grand Prize at Cannes in 2007. Kawase’s film will close the festival on March 13th.
