Anurag Kashyap's GANGS OF WASSEYPUR will open the 11th Annual Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles on April 9th, 2013. Epic in scope, GANGS OF WASSEYPUR is a mafia revenge saga chronicling the violent and bloody decade long turf war between two mob families. Set in the tumultuous times of India's Independence and industrialization, GANGS is a powerful and gritty portrayal of an era past. Part I will have its Los Angeles premiere as opening night film, while Part II will screen the following evening.


Director Anurag Kashyap first came to IFFLA in 2005 with his film BLACK FRIDAY . 'I am happy to be back where I started my journey, before my films got released, before they went anywhere they came to IFFLA,'' said Kashyap. 'I have been missing IFFLA for many years and this year, no way in hell am I going to miss it.'

Deepa Mehta's MIDNIGHT'S CHILDREN will feature as the closing night film of IFFLA 2013. Oscar-nominated director Mehta brings her latest masterpiece, MIDNIGHT'S CHILDREN, to IFFLA, taking audiences on a poetic and visual journey scaling time and space. At the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947, as India proclaims Independence from Great Britain, two newborn babies are switched at birth. Saleem Sinai, the illegitimate son of poverty, and Shiva, the offspring of upper echelon, are fated to live their intertwined destinies. With a star studded cast and lush cinematography, Mehta casts a spell of wonder, magic and delight. Narration is by Salman Rushdie, author of the epic and beloved Booker Prize winning classic novel. Deepa Mehta returns to IFFLA after her Oscar-nominated film WATER had its Los Angeles premiere at the festival in 2006.
