FILMMAKER REFUSED ATTENDING ISRAELI FILM FESTIVAL

Inside India

Noted Indo-American filmmaker Mira Nair has declined an invitation to attend the International Film Festival in Haifa, Israel. “I was just invited to Israel as a guest of honour at the Haifa International Film Festival with ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’. I will not be going to Israel at this time. I will go to Israel when the walls come down. I will go to Israel when occupation is gone,” tweeted Ms Nair on 20 July, publicly boycotting the film festival. Her tweets further add, “I will go to Israel when the state does not privilege one religion over another. I will go to Israel when Apartheid is over. I will go to Israel soon.” Nair’s latest film, ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’, which has been adapted from a Pakistani novel, explores the difficulties a Muslim man faced in the United States of America and at other places after the 9/11.
