MF Husain’s documentary film not screened at IFFI

Bowing to pressure from rightwing Hindu groups, organisers of the 42nd International Film Festival of India (IFFI) deferred the screening of legendary artist MF Husain’s documentary. Speaking to reporters Sunday, IFFI director Shankar Mohan said the screening of Through the Eyes of a Painter was a homage by the film fraternity to the late artist. Mohan said the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) had told them that a case regarding the documentary was pending in court. “We do not want to do anything illegal, so we are taking a legal opinion,” he said. The documentary had won the Golden Bear prize at the Berlin film festival.
