Anurag Kashyap retrospective in Germany

MUMBAI: A retrospective of Anurag Kashyap‘s films has been arranged at Hamburg, Germany from 11 to 16 July.

The screening, to be held at the Hamburg-based Metropolis Cinema, has been organised under the banner of Daring Pioneers of Indian Cinema on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Indian cinema during the India Week 2012.

Films of Kashyap that would be screened on the occasion are Gangs Of Wasseypur, That Girl In Yellow Boots and Black Friday with Kashyap‘s Dev-D opening the event. Notable filmmaker, Fatih Akin will introduce Kashyap and his works.

Said Kinemathek Hamburg international programming head Rita Baukrowitz, "Under the title of ‘Daring Pioneers of Indian cinema‘, the Metropolis cinema is now presenting for the works of outstanding Indian directors. This time the focus is on present-day cinema and on Kashyap, the pioneer of the new independent movement within the Hindi film industry. In his films, Kashyap draws special inspiration from the works of the Hamburg film-maker Fatih Akin - a feeling of admiration that is mutual. We are looking forward to an interesting cinema discussion between Akin, Kashyap and Nair."

Said Kashyap in a statement, ""I am very honoured to be presenting all my films in Hamburg and really happy to be hanging out with Fatih again. He always inspires me and this time too hoping to come back rejuvenated."

The Kinemathek Hamburg, in cooperation with the Indian Embassy in Berlin, the Consulate-General of India in Hamburg and the Hamburg Ministry of Culture, will be presenting this comprehensive film programme on modern Indian cinema to commemorate 60 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
