Director Tha Se Gnanavel’s acclaimed Tamil courtroom drama ‘Jai Bhim’ has been included in the World Competition segment of the 20th Pune International Film Festival, to be held from 3 to 10 March.

The other films in this category are ‘Erasing Frank’ by director Gabor Fabricius (Hungary), ‘Maixabel’ by director Iciar Bollain (Spain), ‘The Exam’ by director Shawkat Amin Korki (Germany, Iraq-Kurdistan, Qatar), director Laura Wandel’s ‘Playground’ (Belgium), director Simon Holy’s ‘Zrcadla Ve Tme'(‘Mirrors in the Dark’) (Czech Republic), director Leonardo Antonio’s ‘Submission’ (Portugal, France), director Selman Nacar’s ‘Iki Safak Arasinda'( ‘Between Two Dawns’) (Turkey, Romania, France, Spain), ‘Amira’ by director Mohamed Diab (Egypt) and ‘House Arrest’ by Aleksey German Jr. (Russia).

The Pune International Film Festival, a prestigious event, is the official film festival of Maharashtra.

2D Entertainment, the company that produced ‘Jai Bhim’, shared its excitement for the film making it to the Pune Film Festival’s World Competition segment.

On Twitter, the production house said: “‘Jai Bhim’ makes the World Competition lineup at PIFF India.”

Interestingly, ‘Jai Bhim’ was one of the Indian movies that was on the list of 276 films eligible for the Academy Awards this year. However, it failed to make the nominations.

Inspired by true events in Tamil Nadu in the 1990s, the film tells the moving story of a sincere lawyer who comes to the aid of poor, defenseless people from the Irular community who have no means to stand up to the power of a inhuman police force trying to exploit their helplessness and commit atrocity after atrocity against them with impunity.
