(for me)

it’s difficult to articulate into words the whirlwind of emotions iv been feeling as soon as i found out the news.. but i think it’s safe to say that i am the proudest son..

more important information about the film below.. Film Heritage Foundation’s hat trick at the Cannes Film Festival!! Film Heritage Foundation returns to the Cannes Film Festival for a third year in a row for the world premiere of the 4K

restoration of Shyam Benegal’s milestone film “Manthan” (1976) - India’s first crowd funded film produced by 500,000 tarmers.“Manthan”, a fictionalized version of the beginnings of the remarkable dairy cooperative movement that transformed India from a milk-deficient nation to the world’s largest milk producer inspired by Verghese Kurien, the Father of the White Revolution, is also India’s first crowdfunded film produced by 500,000 dairy farmers who contributed Rs. 2/- each towards the production of the film. Restored by Film Heritage Foundation at Prasad Corporation Pvt. Ltd.’s Post - Studios, Chennai and L’Immagine Ritrovata Laboratory, in association with Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd., the cinematographer Govind Nihalani and the director Shyam Benegal.”

He further wrote, “Manthan was restored using the best surviving elements: the 35 mm original camera negative preserved at the NFDC-National Film Archive of India and the sound was digitised from the 35 mm release print preserved at Film Heritage Foundation. Funding supported by Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing

Federation Ltd.

Special thanks to Prashant Kanyalkar for the poster design.”

Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah opened up about the film and said, “I started my career as an actor with 'Nishant' followed by Manthan, both directed by Shyam Benegal. Manthan was a runaway success when it was released almost 50 years ago and it is a film that is remembered even today. I remember that during the shooting of Manthan, I lived in the hut, learnt to make cow dung cakes and milk a buffalo. I would carry the buckets and serve the milk to the unit to get the physicality of the character. I am so glad that the Film Heritage Foundation has restored this remarkable film and that this small film made with the support of the farmers has been restored with so much love and care. It is thanks to the persistence, hard work and efforts of Film Heritage Foundation that the film will be premiered in its second life, as it deserves to be, at the Cannes Film Festival and I am so glad that I will be there to present it myself.”
