Hounds and runners to France
Thiruvananthapuram; The Hounds and Runners have been officially selected for the 30th Vessoul International Film Festival in Vessoul, France. Wesol Film Festival is one of the world’s best venues for Asian films. The fair will be held from February 6 to 13 in Vessoul, France.
Its director Raarish won the Special Jury Mention for Best Director at the last Kerala State Film Awards for his film Vettapatti and Ottakaram.
It has already been screened in 20 international film festivals in 8 countries. The film was screened in the Malayalam Cinema Today category at the Kerala International Film Festival 2022 and received excellent audience feedback. The film was also selected as the second best film at the Kerala Film Critics Award.
The film tells the story of a girl posting on Facebook to sell her virginity and the subsequent events in Kerala society. Satirizing the Malayali’s penchant for prying into other people’s privacy, the film is entirely an experimental film. This film is a mirror of the society through about 100 characters. All that is reflected in that mirror are the contours of the society. The film tells the story in a completely mockumentary style.
The film is written, cinematography, produced and directed by Raarish. Athira Harikumar is playing the lead role. Adit, T. T. Usha, Atukal Thambi, Alleppey Ponnappan, K.K. Menon, Abraham Mathew, Kannan Nair, Esha Reshu, Mathew Merrin, Dr. Lakshmi Rajesh, Shaji John, Haridas. U, Anil Ambadi, Ashwathi Sudarshan, Dr. Ajay Panayera and others are playing the lead roles.
