Ezra selected for screening at the 22nd Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival
Prithviraj’s horror flick Ezra was one of the biggest hits of 2017. The movie stood out for the novelty in its plot and the top quality production values. Jay K directed this movie which is arguably the first attempt in making a proper horror flick in Malayalam rather than the usual horror comedies. Upon its release, the movie received critical acclaim and also emerged a winner at the box office.
After an year of its theatrical release, the movie has now been selected for screening at the 22nd Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival. BIFAN will be held from July 12th to July 22nd in Bucheon, Korea. It is one of the premiere genre film festivals in Asia where around 300 films are screened every year.
Ezra is said to be the first Indian movie with a horror theme, set in a Jewish backdrop. Along with Prithviraj, the movie also had Priya Anand, Tovino Thomas, Ann Sheetal, Sudev Nair, Babu Antony, Vijayaraghavan, Prathap Pothen, Bharath Dabholkar and Alencier Ley Lopez in crucial roles.
Ezra’s technical crew includes cinematographer Sujith Vaassudev, editor Vivek Harshan, composers Rahul Raj and Sushin Shyam. Mukesh R. Mehta, C. V. Sarathy and A. V. Anoop produced the movie under the banner of E4 Entertainment and AVA Productions.
