“The organisers make it a point to add a new theme every year and we've zeroed in on 'political cinema' for this festival," Mr HN Narahari Rao, artistic director of the festival, said at a press conference. The fourth edition of the film festival is jointly organised by the Karnataka Chalanachitra Academy and Karnataka Government's Information department.
The event starts from December 15-22 and 179 movies from different languages will be screened at BIFF, says TS Nagabharana, Festival Director. Political-backdrop movies like The Battle of Algiers (Algerian), Z (French), Thaneer Thaneer (Tamil), Lemon Tree (Hebrew) and others will be screened across four venues in Bengaluru.
However, Upendra acted-directed Super was made on the contemporary political issues of Karnataka. The saga throws light on mining scam, horse trading, sex scandal, etc.
