FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
2008 PIGLFF ANNOUNCES WORLD PREMIERE OF WHEN KIRAN MET KAREN
[Philadelphia, PA June 13th, 2008] The Philadelphia Film Society today announced that the drama When Kiran Met Karen, written produced and directed by Manan Singh Katohora, will have its world premiere at the 2008 Philadelphia International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. When Kiran Met Karen, stars Samrat Chakrabarti, Chriselle Almeida, Kelli Holsopple, Manish Dayal, Shetal Shah, Iggy Ignatius, and Emmy-nominated Tirlok Malik. Members of the distinguished crew include Production Manager Hiral Shah, internationally acclaimed award-winning Art Director Tushar Unadkat, acclaimed editor Matt Thomas and Cinematographer Punit Chhabra.
"It is absolutely amazing how this movie has come together after two years of hard work and perseverance," said Manan Singh Katohora, director of the film, "I'm thrilled that we were able to put together such a talented cast and crew, and create a quality film. I'm just disappointed that there are not enough movies out there that showcase the honest exploration of a female's sexuality."
This groundbreaking movie will have its world premier on Saturday July 12th at 9:30, followed by a second screening on Sunday, July 13th. Both screenings will be at the famous Prince Music Theater.
Anytime an Indian filmmaker attempts to work outside of the perceived morality, there is sure to be controversy, explained PIGLFF senior programmer Kelly Burkhardt. Manan Singh Katohora has bravely pushed through borders to make a fantastic film.
