Onir’s I Am to be screened in Spain film fest

MUMBAI: Director Onir’s I AM, a film that strings four different stories, has been selected for screening in the competition section at the ongoing international film festival in Spain.

"I AM has been selected to be screened at the 56th Valladolid International Film Festival in competition section," Sanjay Suri, who runs production company Anticlock Films with Onir, said.

Released in April, the film has four short films – Omar, Afia, Abhimanyu and Megha. They talk about the plight of Kashmiri Pandits, exploitation of gays, paedophelia and single motherhood.

Each story shares a common theme — fear. The film was made at a budget of Rs.3 crore, a third of which was raised through social networking site Facebook.
