“Pedro was meant for the film festival, and we had completed the shoot. If not for the lockdown, this would have been screened at the Goes to Cannes Film Festival this year. It is now shifted to 2021,” says Rishab.
Pedro is one of five films from Asia selected at Film Bazaar. Now, it will be among the 20 global films selected for Goes to Cannes, and the first Kannada film to be selected for competition directly. The film set in western ghats of Karnataka is about a middle-aged electrician in a remote village who accidentally commits a disgraceful act. How his village reacts unexpectedly then forms the crux of the story, directed by Natesh Hegde.
