Sandeep Sawant's Marathi film "Shwaas" (A Breath) is a film about an elderly villager who brings his seven-year-old grandson Parshuram to the city, only to find he will have to have both the child's eyes removed to save him from tumour of the retina.

In October, reports from Mumbai spoke about how the movie's eight producers - mostly debutants - were caught without the wherewithal to carry on with an Oscar campaign for "Shwaas", after it was chosen as India's official entry.

At the 35th IFFI, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar handed over a cheque of Rs.2.1 million to producer Arun Nalavade as a donation to the Shwaas Foundation.

The donation is aimed at supporting and promoting the screening of the film, which has been nominated for the 77th Academy Award.
