Movie rental company Seventymm has tied up with Palador Pictures, distributors of award winning foreign language films across the world, to enrich its portfolio by adding films made by renowned directors like Akira Kurosawa, Francois Truffaut and Wong-Kar Wai, whose works have not had commercial release in India.
Subhanker Sarker, COO, Seventymm, said, “Palador brings to Seventymm an exciting palate of world class films. World cinema has a niche but discerning audience, and we will continue to enrich our offerings in this genre by bringing more exclusive titles for our consumers. Titles like ‘Two English Girls’ and ‘Shoot the Piano Player’ are truly rare in India and Seventymm is very excited to add this selection to its repertoire.”
Gautum Shiknis, MD, Palador Pictures Ltd, said, “Palador’s effort is to make world cinema legitimate in India. We are also in a quest to eradicate piracy as well as popularise the concept through innovative marketing tie-ups, like the one with Seventymm. Through this tie-up we hope to achieve the goals we have started out with.”
Some of the award winning and critically acclaimed films available on Seventymm include Akira Kurosawa’s masterpieces like ‘Seven Samurai’, ‘Yojimbo’, ‘The Throne of Blood’ and ‘Red Beard’; Wong-Kar Wai’s Cannes Award winner ‘The Mood for Love’, ‘Chun King Express’ and the romantic flick ‘Happy Together’.
