The upcoming 20th edition of International Film Festival of Kerala beginning here on December 4, will feature screenings of classic movies that occupy pride of place in the pantheon of Indian cinema.
The line-up in the ‘Restored classics’ category features the legendary works like “Kaagaz Ke Phool”, “Amma Ariyan”, “Oko Oori Katha”, Mathilukal”, “Garam Hava” and “Jait Re Jait”.
Each film is a classic from an iconic filmmaker in near absolute comprehension of his vision and command of his craft, Kerala Chalachithra Akademi, the organiser of the event, said here in a release today.
While the films differ in theme, milieu and language, a stirring narrative and powerful parable is common to all, it said.
That their relevance has not dimmed either with age or across audiences speaks to both the timelessness and universality of their respective message, it said.
IFFK 2015, Kerala’s premier film festival, runs from December 4-11.
