Inspired by Paul Cox’s memoir Tales from the Cancer Ward about his victorious battle with liver cancer, Force Of Destiny is a life-celebrating story about a sculptor who survives a liver transplant and falls in love. The film is also a cry for organ donation. With major portions of the film shot in Trivandrum, Kerala, the film boasts of a strong Indian cast including arthouse actresses Shahana Goswami and Seema Biswas as well as prolific Mohan Agashe.
Paul Cox is one of Australia’s most distinguished filmmakers (often aptly referred to as the father of independent art cinema in Australia). His oeuvre comprises over 20 films including well-known and critically acclaimed titles like Lonely Hearts (1981), Man Of Flowers (1983), My First Wife (1984), Cactus (1986), A Woman’s Tale (1991), Innocence (2000) and Diaries Of Vaslav Nijinsky (2001) among others.
