Anand Gandhi’s “Ship of Theseus” in Competition at Tokyo Film Festival

By NewsDesk • Published on September 20, 2012

Ship of Theseus by Anand Gandhi has been selected in the competition section of the 25th Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF). The festival will be held from 20th – 28th October, 2012.

Ship of Theseus is a documentary style drama about three separate philosophical stories in Mumbai that converge at a single point of illumination. An idealist monk diagnosed with cancer is against the use of medicines that is tested on animals. A noted photographer struggles to change the perspective of people of her art and herself. And a young stockbroker nursing his ailing grandmother discovers an organ smuggling racket. All three philosophical journeys unfold questions that are most difficult to answer.

Apart from being a part of the Tokyo Film Festival, Ship of Theseus had its world premier under the Mumbai City to City program at the Toronto International Film Festival 2012.  The film will also be screened at the 56th BFI London Film Festival.

Agneepath by Karan Malhotra will also be screened under the Film Panorama of Asia-Middle East at TIFF. Agneepath is a remake of a 1990 crime film by the same name directed by Mukul Anand. Vijay Dinanath Chauhan takes an oath to avenge the brutal murder of his innocent father. He vows to return to his hometown Mandwa and bring Kanch, the drug dealer, to justice.
