Kalki starrer That Girl In Yellow Boots to be screened at Venice Film Festival

Anurag Kashyap recent film as a producer, Udaan, got lot of critical acclaim. Now, Kashyap is all set with his next directorial venture titled That Girl In Yellow Boots, the film which stars Kalki Koelchin and is co-produced by National Film Development Corporation of India (NFDC).


That Girl In Yellow Boots which in essence is a thriller tracing Ruth’s (Kalki Koechlin) search for her father – a man she hardly knew but cannot forget. Desperation drives her to work without a permit, at a massage parlour. Torn between several schisms, Mumbai becomes the alien but yet strangely familiar backdrop for Ruth’s quest. She struggles to find her independence and space even as she is sucked deeper into the labyrinthine politics of the city’s underbelly. A city that feeds on her misery, a love that eludes her and above all, a devastating truth that she must encounter. And everyone wants a piece of her. But what’s interesting is the fact that it has been selected for the esteemed 67th Venice Film Festival.


The film will be screened under Out-of-Competition section at this year’s Venice Film Festival. Under this section, important works by directors already established in previous editions of the Festival are showcased. The festival will take place from 1st to 11th September 2010 at Venice Lido.


An ecstatic Anurag Kashyap said, “I am on top of the world. Thank you NFDC to pull the project out of post production limbo and completing it. I would also like to thank Ronnie Screwvala, Sanjay Singh and Sikhya Entertainment for lending me the money and unconditional support”.


If that wasn’t enough That Girl in Yellow Boots will also be screened at the forthcoming Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), wilt the film will have its North American Premiere under Special Presentations.
