Mira Nair’s “The Reluctant Fundamentalist” to open 4th Doha Tribeca Film Festival

The Reluctant Fundamentalist

Mira Nair’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist which recently opened the Venice Film Festival will open the 4th Doha Tribeca Film Festival on November 17.

The film has been majorly financed by the Doha Film Institute (DFI).

“We are thrilled with the honour of “The Reluctant Fundamentalist” opening the Doha Tribeca Film Festival – made all the sweeter after the five-year odyssey it has been making this film,” said Nair. “A lovely send-off for a tale that couldn’t be more timely for the world we live in today. It is rare to be able to make a global film that is both political and personal. DFI provided instrumental support from the beginning, their un-stirring faith in this timely story made it happen against all odds.”

Based on the novel of the same title by Pakistani author Mohsin Hamid, translated into 25 languages, The Reluctant Fundamentalist is an international political thriller that follows the story of a young Pakistani man, chasing corporate success on Wall Street, who ultimately finds himself embroiled in a conflict between his American Dream, a hostage crisis, and the enduring call of his family’s homeland. The cast includes Riz Ahmed, Kate Hudson, Kiefer Sutherland, Liev Schreiber, Shabana Azmi and Om Puri.

The Doha Tribeca Film Festival is scheduled to be held from November 17 to 24, 2012.
