Four-day NIFF gets going in Kathmandu

MUMBAI: With an aim to provide a platform for indigenous as well as non-indigenous community toresearch, document, interact and develop information on indigenous cultures, traditions,languages, issues, knowledge and wisdom through the visual medium, the four-day 5th NepalInternational Indigenous Film Festival (NIIFF 2011) organised by Indigenous Film Archive (IFA)began in Kathmandu on 22 April.


Alike earlier editions of NIIFF, this edition also eyes for international recognition of Nepali filmindustry and indigenous community of Nepal.


Said Navin Subba of the NIFF, "In our first attempt, we hardly got few international participants but now there are dozens of films and documentaries made by international film makers."According to Subba, in past couple of decades Nepal film industry used to copy Bollywood and Hollywood movies but at present, the industry and Nepali filmmakers have the quality to tell their own Nepali tales.


A total of 42 films from 20 countries and regions including Australia, Brazil, Burma, Cambodia, China‘s Taiwan, Canada, Finland, India, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Nepal, New Zealand, Norway, Palestine, Peru, Sweden, Russia, Vietnam and the United States will be shown at the festival.Among them eight Nepali films including two fictions and six documentaries are being screened.


Fourteen filmmakers and festival organizers are participating in person from eight countries and regions .


78year -old Canadian producer Alanis Obomsawin is a Guest of Honor at the festival.


Pastor also ruled in favor of a prosecution request to play video clips from the last two days of Jackson‘s stage rehearsals. The clips show Jackson rehearsing the songs "The Way You Make Me Feel" and "Earth Song". Some of the rehearsal footage was turned into the posthumous hit film "This Is It."


The judge said the footage of Jackson was "relevant as to his demeanor." Murray‘s attorneys had argued that the rehearsal footage was edited and misleading.


Deputy district attorney David Walgren said he wanted the jurors to see the clips because they show Jackson as an "energetic" man who "fully intends in participating in this tour (and) fully intends on living out his life."


Jackson at the time was days away from beginning a series of comeback concerts in London.


Pastor said he will also allow testimony from women with whom prosecutors say Murray, who was married at the time, had a "personal and social relationship." But the judge did not want


jurors to hear about Murray meeting two of the women at strip clubs.


The judge also ruled against a defense request to delve into Jackson‘s troubled finances and numerous lawsuits against him. Pastor said he did not want the trial to become a "salacious analysis of personal financial issues."
