Don Palathara's Family becomes housefull at Rotterdam film festival
Don’s previous film Everything Is Cinema was also selected at the festival in 2021
We had earlier reported that Vinay Fort-starrer Family, directed by Don Palathara will premiere at the International Film Festival Rotterdam on January 28. Recently, taking to Instagram, the actor wrote, " My new film, Family has its ticket sold out at International Film Festival of Rotterdam."
Produced by Newton Cinema, the film also stars Mathew Thomas, Divyaprabha, Nilja K Baby, and Abhija Sivakala as the lead.
According to IFFR, the official synopsis reads, "Don Palathara's sensitive social drama Family paints a nuanced, sharply observed picture of a devout Catholic community in southern India's Kerala. The sketches of everyday life in the village, mainly seen through the eyes of Sony (Vinay Fort), show the paradoxes and hypocrisy of the close-knit rural life: details of people's private lives are immediately revealed by shadowy gossip networks, but inconvenient truths are concealed under the guise of common virtue." Meanwhile, Don’s previous film Everything Is Cinema was also selected at the festival in 2021.
