    MF Husain documentary to be screened at IFFI

    MF Husain documentary to be screened at IFFI

    A film documentary by late painter MF Husain will finally be screened at the ongoing 42nd International Film Festival of India despite right wing protests, said organisers Tuesday. Speaking to reporters, festival director Shankar Mohan said Husain’s documentary Through the Eyes of a Painter would “definitely be screened” Wednesday, but a slot had not been finalised yet. “We are looking for a slot. It will definitely be screened,” he said. Mohan had said Saturday that the screening of the documentary, which is part of a homage by the film fraternity to the artist who died this year, had been ‘deferred’ after protests from right wing organisation Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS), which had claimed that screening of the documentary would amount to contempt of court as a case regarding the screening of the film was ‘sub judice’. Rajshree Gadekar, chief of the women’s wing of HJS said the 1967 film shot by Husain and produced by the Films Division of India (FDI) should not be screened at the festival because the painter had insulted India. Mohan said the IFFI organisers had sought advice “in our own way and arrived at clarity on the matter”.

    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.

    In a tragic incident, Brazilian documentary director Oscar Marron Filho suffered a cardiac arrest during an interactive session Sunday afternoon and died later at a local hospital. IFFI director Shankar Mohan said that as a mark of respect for the Brazilian director, the film parties scheduled Sunday would be cancelled and the playing of loud music would be stopped. Filho, 56, whose film Mario Filho: A Creator of Crowds – based on famed Brazilian journalist and writer Mario Filho was screened as a part of a special package on soccer films – was speaking during Open Forum, an interactive session with delegates on Sunday when he suddenly suffered a heart attack. After a few minutes of chaos, the ailing Filho was rushed to the Goa Medical College and hospital located some distance from Panaji, where he succumbed. “We are suspending festivities for today. Two minutes’ silence will be observed at all theatres at 8pm today. His relatives have been informed,” Mohan said.
