Karan Kandahari’s SISTER MIDNIGHT selected by Quinzaine des Cinéastes

Director and writer Karan Kandhari’s feature Sister Midnight has been selected by Quinzaine des Cinéastes in Cannes.

The black comedy follows the journey of a small-town misfit in a newly-arranged marriage who attempts to navigate an awkward spouse, nosy neighbours and her own feral impulses.

The Mumbai-set feature, starring Radhika Apte, has been backed by Film4 and BFI, awarding National Lottery funding, and produced by the UK’s Alastair Clark for Wellington Films, Anna Griffin for Griffin Pictures, with India’s Alan McAlex.

Sweden’s Filmgate Films and Film i Väst are co-producers and India’s Suitable Pictures are associate producers. UK sales outfit Protagonist Pictures has boarded as sales agents.

“I hope people get to see this strange film to witness the wonder that is Radhika Apte. For me, she’s the closest thing to Buster Keaton or Toshiro Mifune reborn,” says Indian filmmaker Kandhari.

Lensed by cinematographer Sverre Sørdal on 35mm film, with 4K scans by Cinelab Film & Digital and dailies colour by Cinelab's Paul Dean.

SISTER MIDNIGHT will premiere during the director’s fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival, 14-25 May.
