'Kajarya' gets selected for the Montreal World Film Festival

Independent film 'Kajarya', has been selected for the prestigious Montreal
Film Festival 2014.

Directed by Madhureeta Anand, the film will be showcased in the 'Focus on
World Cinema' section at the prestigious Montreal World Film Festival 2014,
21st August - 1st September.

An assured second feature from the director, the film is an original voice
about female foeticide in India. It is a story of a rookie journalist in
Delhi who exposes a woman, believed to embody Goddess Kali, who ritually
kills female newborns in a village nearby. The story questions notions of
women’s emancipation and feminism as it weaves through an interplay of
drama and events and explores how India continues to live in many centuries
at the same time.

'Kajarya' stars Meenu Hooda, Ridhima Sud and Kuldeep Ruhil. The film had
its world premiere at the Dubai International Film Festival. It has found
critical appreciation internationally since and has been selected by the
Forbes India magazine as the #1 in the Top 5 Films to See in 2014.

'Kajarya' is produced by Starfire Movies and co-produced by Ekaa Films and
Overdose Joint.

Starfire's next co-production is 'Ludo', with Idyabooster and Overdose
Joint.  'Ludo' is a fantasy-thriller horror film by the maverick directors
duo Q and Nikon, and is currently in post production.
