By NewsDesk • Published on October 13, 2012

Tasher Desh, the latest film by Gandu fame Kaushik Mukherjee (Q) will compete in the Cinema XXI section of the 7th edition of the Rome Film Festival. The festival will run from 9th – 17th November, 2012.

Tasher Desh is based on Rabindranath Tagore’s dance drama with the same name. The film is co-produced by Anurag Kashyap. In an interview with DearCinema, Q described the film as “Tagore on an acid trip”, a psychedelic and intense rendition of the work of Tagore. The film stars Anubrata Basu, Rituparna Sen and Soumyak Kanti De Biswas.

The Rome Film Festival has four sections, Competition, Out of Competition, CinemaXXI and Prospettive Italia. The jury of the CinemaXXI section is led by Douglas Gordon with Hans Hurch, Ed Lachman, Andrea Lissoni and Emily Jacir. The film in the section will compete for the CinemaXXI Award.

Q came into international prominence with Gandu that had its European premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival last year. The film was also presented at the Transilvania Film Festival in Romania and won the Best New Director award at the 37th Seattle International Film Festival.
