'Zoo', 'In The Shadows' to premiere at Busan Film Festival

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Manoj Bajpayee-starrer 'In The Shadows' and filmmaker Anurag Kashyap's next production 'Zoo', which stars Shweta Tripathi, will premiere at the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF).

'In The Shadows' is a psychological drama about a man who is trapped within the city walls and in his own mind. He attempts to break free to find a human connection. The movie has been directed by Los Angeles-based debutant director, Dipesh Jain.

"In The Shadows will premiere at @busanfilmfest. Great news for the entire team #dipeshjain @Shuchijain @RanvirShorey," Bajpayee posted on Twitter.
Besides the actor, the movie also stars Ranvir Shorey, Neeraj Kabi, Shahana Goswami and Belgian actress Laura Verlinden.

'Zoo', directed by Shlok Sharma, has been selected for 'A window on Asian Cinema' category at the film festival. 'Zoo' has been entirely shot on iPhone 6. In the movie, Shweta plays the role of a young teenager by the name of Misha Mehta, who blames herself for an accident that happened a few years ago and finds herself trapped in her house to escape her emotions. She finds solace in drugs.

"I always wanted to be a part of films which matter and being rewarded by getting recognition from a festival like Busan is something I as an actor work for primarily. I always wanted to be part of experimental cinema and this film gives me exactly that," Shweta said in a statement. "Shlok is a director who gave me my first feature film I shot but unfortunately it was stuck for various reasons and then he wanted to make another film with me."

Besides 'Zoo' and 'In The Shadows', Devashish Makhija's 'Ajji', a dark retelling of the fairy tale The Little Red Riding Hood, will also be showcased in the New Currents section at BIFF.

South Korea's 'Glass Garden', directed by Shin Su-won and starring actress Moon Geun-young, is set to open the festival, which will run in the south-eastern port city of Busan from October 12 to 21.
