Majidi’s Film to Open India Festival

‘Beyond the Clouds,’ a drama written and directed by Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi, will open the 48th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa.
The festival, slated for November 20-28, is the oldest and most prestigious film festival in India, Mehr News Agency reported.
Indian Oscar winner and composer A. R. Rahman and filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj, who collaborated with Majidi for the film, are expected to be present for the screening.
Rahman has composed the music for the film. Bhardwaj has written the Hindi part of the script. Majidi had an earlier collaboration with Rahman in his 2015 film ‘Muhammad: The Messenger of God.’
“This will be my second time at the IFFI.  The first time was a retrospective of my earlier films. I am very happy and curious to see the reaction of the audience because this is the first time the film will be presented to the people of India,” Majidi said.
‘Beyond the Clouds’, an Indian production, focuses on a brother-sister relationship and the story unfolds in Mumbai. The film includes dialogues in three languages: English, Tamil and Hindi.
It was nominated for the Best Film Award at the 61st BFI London Film Festival in October, where it had its world premiere.
