Indian Filmaker’s debut

Friday, 1 September 2006

In the news has been Murali Thalluri a 22 year old filmmaker from Adelaide. His film 2:37 has opened recently and has attracted some attention. Partly for good reasons as it has been critically acclaimed and been selected for the Cannes Film Festival. But also partly because tere seems to be some attempt at discreding the authenticily of his assertion that the film that tackles teen suicide, is inspired by his own attempt at suicide and that of a close friend. He’s had some harrowing experiences and an interesting time bringing the resources for this film together, if this account is accurate.
