WHAT'S ON: DELEGATE Registration | FILM LIST- International Competition, Malayalam Cinema Today, Indian Cinema Now |
The political task of Malayalam cinema is to put up a creative resistance in accordance with this changed reality (of global scenario). We can see this task being accomplished by the movies done by Adoor Gopalakrishnan, T V Chandran, Shaji N Karun and M P Sukumaran Nair who actively follow the ways of "art films" without giving them up to make compromises. The movies done by Syamaprasad, Subrahmaniam Santhakumar, Rajiv Vijayaraghavan, V K Prakash, R Sarath, Priyanandan and the like, render strength to the course that connects the 'popular' and 'art' streams creatively. M G Sasi who earned regional and national honors for debut film (Adayalangal) is a promising presence. A handful of expatriate Malayalee directors who frequently come to Kerala to make their films –Murali Nair, Satheesh Menon, Liji Pulleppally, Sanjay Nambiar and Geetha-come up with themes close to the culture of Kerala.

The present social life of Kerala as it is placed against the global realities, the impact of globalisation, issues of representation and rights of women and sexual minorities are increasingly being adopted into films. The task ahead is to make possible films that can take up the challenge of globalisation, and putting up resistance to it through depictions that go deep into the complexities of the turbulent life that we see close around us......
