Tanuja Chandra’s debut documentary at Jio MAMI fest

Mumbai, Oct 1 (IANS) After its world premiere at the Madrid International Film Festival, filmmaker Tanuja Chandras debut documentary, “Aunty Sudha Aunty Radha” will now be screened at Jio MAMI 21st Mumbai Film Festival with Star.

The film revolves around the lives of two, widowed sisters, aged 86 and 93.

Excited about the screening, Tanuja said: “I’m a fan of this wonderful festival and am so excited to have our local viewers watch the film. I’m also eager to receive the response of the American audience to this uniquely Indian film.

“Aging is a universal fact and I’m hoping that my quirky Buas will bring a smile on the faces of film lovers in Chicago and Seattle as it did in Madrid. And what’s also very cool is that not just my documentary but my short film, A Monsoon Date, starring Konkona will be screened at the American festivals as well!”

Recently, the film had its North American premiere in the Chicago South Asian Film Festival and the Tasveer South Asian Film Festival, Seattle.

Jio MAMI 21st Mumbai Film Festival with Star will take place from October 17 to October 24.
