GUWAHATI, Nov 3 - �The story of Ma-Ama has inspired me to get involved with the project, and I hope to get more such excellent plots from this region in the coming days too,� said Xu Jianshang from China who has produced the film, Ma-Ama, while talking to The Assam Tribune here today.
The film directed by a young filmmaker from Meghalaya, Dominic Megam Sangma, is in the screening schedule of the third edition of the Guwahati International Film Festival (GIFF).
It is the story of Philip who lives every day for 30 years with the hope that one day he will reunite with his wife in the afterlife.
Talking to The Assam Tribune, Sangma said, �Ma-Ama is about my father and it is a bi-product of my previous film. The film was released in the Garo Hills recently and we got an overwhelming response. The film will release in Shillong soon.�
Meanwhile, he added that the commercial success of a film is not the parameter to measure whether it is good or bad.
Commenting on the independent films from the North East, he said right now the environment is very encouraging and the region is becoming a hub of good films. But there are some challenges regarding funds and financial support that exist in some parts like Meghalaya, he added.
