MUMBAI: Rajan Khosa’s award-winning Indian film Gattu has been invited to screen at the 2nd Beijing International Film festival that is being held from 23 to 28 April.
Produced by the Children‘s Film Society of India, Gattu is the lone Indian film featured in the retrospective section of the festival that will screen around 260 movies. It features the obsession of a boy from small town to fly kites.
China is slowly opening its doors to foreign films. Till now no foreign films were allowed in the country, with only a selected few permitted for screening annually.
The Aamir Khan starrer 3 Idiots, which was translated into Chinese, did a good business and was a hit all over China.
The country is slowly opening up to India on the cultural front.
