Producer Prashita Chaudhary made her presence felt in world cinema even as 100 years of Indian cinema gets celebrated at Cannes this year. She is one of the producers on Ari Folman's film 'Congress' which opened the Directors' Fortnight section at the premier film festival on 16th May 2013.
The film stars Harvey Keitel (Reservoir Dogs), Robin Wright (Moneyball) and Paul Giamatti (Sideways) among others. "It is my first working relationship with India in a manner. It is rare to find people who share the same passion on the film as the director" said Folman about his Indian producer.
Prashita's production house Cinemorphic has been doing ground-breaking work, picking projects that celebrate cinema at its purest. Besides Congress, Prashita is behind films like Oscar winning director, Danis Tanovic's next with Emraan Hashmi.
"The selection of Congress in Cannes this year is a terrific and timely validation that Cinemorphic is on the right track," said Prashita. "I believe in world cinema and working with some of the best minds from across the globe. The journey for me has just begun and I would like to continue backing projects like Congress."
