Of guru & disciple: Alfonso Cuaron executive produces The Disciple

Oscar-winning filmmaker Alfonso Cuaron is executive producing the Chaitanya Tamhane directorial, The Disciple, which features in the competition section of the upcoming Venice Film Festival.

Writer-director Tamhane’s Marathi film, The Disciple, is the first Indian film in almost 20 years to feature in the main competition at any of the three major European films festivals — Berlin, Cannes and Venice.

The Disciple will debut in the official competition at the 77th Venice International Film Festival. This is the first Indian film to make the cut since Mira Nair’s Monsoon Wedding in 2001, which had won Golden Lion, the highest prize at the festival.
