An exciting update on Lijo Jose Pellissery's Jallikattu is here. The maverick Malayalam filmmaker's follow-up to Ee.Ma.Yau will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which will run from September 5-15. 

Along with the announcement, a few intruiging images from the film have also popped up online, which give vibes of Mel Gibson's Apocalypto and the 'Dawn of Man' sequence in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.

On the TIFF page of the film, the synopsis reads: "A bold new voice in Malayalam cinema, Lijo Jose Pellissery presents a portrait of a remote village in his hometown where a buffalo escapes and causes a frenzy of ecstatic violence."

Jallikattu, which is based on S Hareesh's short story, Maoist, stars Angamaly Diaries' breakout actor Antony Varghese, Chemban Vinod Jose, and Sabumon Abdusamad among others.

Two other collaborators of Lijo Jose from Angamaly Diaries — cinematographer Gireesh Gangadharan and composer Prasanth Pillai — also return.
