Chitra Palekar's MAATI MAAY won the award "Prix du jury Graine de Cinephage" in the feature films category, in the recently concluded 30th International Film Festival "Films de Femmes" of Creteil, a suburb of Paris in France.

Large numbers, consisting of filmmakers and cine lovers, especially youth who found it extremely moving and beautiful, attended the screenings, specially sub-titled in French.

This is 4th International Award won by MAATI MAAY.

MAATI MAAY (A Grave-keeper's Tale) is based on a short story (‘Baayen') by the well-known writer Mahasweta Devi. It is the heart-rending tale of a young mother who is trapped between her instincts and needs, and the compulsions of her ancestral duty as dictated by the social system.

Produced under the banner of Dnya Films, the film has been produced and directed by Chitra Palekar and features Nandita Das, Atul Kulkarni and Kshitij Gavande in key roles.
