Welcome to the third edition of Rim-Jhim 2021 – a virtual film festival curated by Pickle Jar exclusively for IIIT-B. This time, Rim-Jhim has been timed to play out alongside this very special conference EMPOWER 2021 hosted by IIIT-B
So here we are, honored to present to you a film festival on this very theme of Inclusion.
We’re screening two feature-length movies that you can watch anytime this week:
A Marathi production by Riteish Deshmukh & directed by filmmaker Mahesh Limaye, is a story of a girl with Down Syndrome who takes a liking to swimming.
In Shivraj Waichal’s Filmfare award-winning short film, a visually impaired boy draws inspiration from his whimsical world.
This riveting short, directed by Prof Itandehui Jansen, is about a blind date where a visually impaired florist, Clara, meets Simon, who uses sign language.
Nagesh Kukunoor’s critically-acclaimed film in Hindi is about a deaf and mute boy by the same name with exceptional cricketing talent.
