 WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?

The Chicago International Film Festival is a year-round, non-profit cultural and educational organisation dedicated to fostering better communication between people of diverse cultures through the art of film and the moving image.

INDIAN CONNECT

In The Shadows Directed by Dipesh Jain, In The Shadows is the story of a man trapped within the walls of the old city of Delhi and his attempts to break free to find a human connection. The man, Khuddoos, who obsessively watches people through his hidden cameras, begins a search for a boy he hears getting beaten up through the walls of his house. Gradually, he loses his grip on time and reality and eventually breaks down the wall, only to be confronted by a shocking truth… there’s no one on the other side.

OPENING NIGHT

Marshall Directed by Reginald Hudlin and starring Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, Sterling K Brown and James Cromwell, Marshall is based on a true incident in the life of Thurgood Marshall, when he was a young lawyer. A nearly bankrupt NAACP sends Marshall to conservative Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur against his wealthy socialite employer in a sexual assault and attempted murder trial that quickly became tabloid fodder.
