Anurag Kashyap to present Bhaskar Hazarika's Aamis, set in Assam; film to release in India on 22 November
Aamis premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, and won the Best Director and Best Actress award at Singapore South Asian International Film Festival.
Anurag Kashyap has announced he will present Aamis, a film written and directed by filmmaker Bhaskar Hazarika. Aamis premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York earlier this year, where it was nominated in five categories, including Best Film.
Taking to his Instagram account, Anurag said that audiences "have not seen anything like Aamis coming out of India" before. He added Hazarika is "fearless and is telling a story that is unique."
Expressing his views on Kashyap presenting the movie, Hazarika says in a press statement, "Having Anurag Kashyap to present the film is a dream come true for all of us in the team. Anurag is known for his unique and original vision, and his support for Aamis will definitely go a long way in putting the film in the public eye."
