Angry Indian Goddesses by Pan Nalin wins the BNL People’s Choice Award
Angry Indian Goddesses by Pan Nalin is the winner of the BNL People’s Choice Award at the 10th Rome Film Fest. The award is presented in collaboration with the long-time Main Partner BNL Gruppo BNP Paribas. The audience cast its votes thanks to an online voting system designed by Xaos.
The first female Indian “buddy movie” - directed by the filmmaker of Ayurveda: Art of Being, the highest-grossing Indian documentary ever - is a fresh and unbridled portrayal of women in India today.
The 10th Rome Film Fest is produced by Fondazione Cinema per Roma. Piera Detassis is the President of the Fondazione, Lucio Argano is the General Manager. Antonio Monda is the Artistic Director of the Rome Film Fest, supported by a selection committee coordinated by Mario Sesti and composed of Richard Peña, Giovanna Fulvi, Alberto Crespi, Alessia Palanti, and Francesco Zippel.
“Women in India – stated Luigi Abete, President of the BNL Gruppo BNP Paribas – are one of the foremost engines of evolution in the country: their commitment and their energy are helping to successfully tear down social and cultural barriers.
