Tharoor attends screening of Ashvin Kumar's ‘No Fathers in Kashmir’ at IFFK 2019

Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 7 (UNI) Oscar nominated and National Film Award winning film maker Ashvin Kumar’s ‘No Fathers in Kashmir’ was screened as part of the 24th International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK) on Saturday at the Kairali theatre. Dr Shashi Tharoor MP attended the screening at Kairali theatre.
The film will be screened again on December 9 at Nila. The film was released in India earlier in 2019 and is now ready for its global release in the UK, followed by the US market. It has already received positive reviews at the special screenings conducted for the UK press in November 2019.
Ashvin is the youngest ever Indian Oscar nominee for ‘Little Terrorist’, which was also nominated for European Film Academy Awards and won 24 top honours in over 200 film festivals around the world.
He is a two-time National award winner for his Kashmir series, ‘Inshallah’, ‘Football’ and ‘Inshallah, Kashmir’, and has also directed ‘Road to Ladakh’ (starring Irrfan Khan), ‘Dazed in Doon’, ‘The Forest’ (starring Jaaved Jaffery), and a UNHCR commissioned documentary on migration, ‘I Am not Here’.
Ashvin began working as a director in theatre and founded one of the best digital post-production studios in India in 1996. He is a voting member of the European Film Academy.
According to Director Ashvin Kumar, “No Fathers in Kashmir is founded on the premise that forgiveness and hope are the reason for our survival as a species. The stories I’ve told are about tangled acts of love, betrayal, friendship and loss — impulses universally understood. These impulses have, time and again, cut through history and helped us find better ways of living together in peace".
