Manesh Madhavan, an FTII graduate and an alumnus of the Berlinale Talent Campus of the Berlin International Film Festival, has cranked the camera.
“It’s extra special because IFFK is essentially a people’s film festival, one that we can consider our own.
After many, many years it’s a great pleasure to see your own film Aedan at the 22nd International Film Festival of Kerala,” wrote Sanju, capturing it’s essence while summing up what the festival means to generations of film buffs and wannabe filmmakers like himself.
IFFK stunned us with a plethora of films and we were reeling with a hangover of stories, images and music.
Aedan, he says, is an ode to Kottayam, especially the village of Neendur, it’s people, places, language, customs and culture.
