Stuttgart, July 17 (DPA) An entertaining documentary about a village and its problems with a wild bull opened Germany's only annual festival of Indian cinema Wednesday in the southern city of Stuttgart.
Organizers said they hoped to sell 13,000 tickets this year for the screenings over five days at Stuttgart's Metropol cinema.
A business-opportunities forum will be held during the film event. The Indian ambassador to Germany, Meera Shankar, stressed Wednesday that Indian films were a $2-billion-per year industry.
While Bollywood romances have developed their own fan community in Germany, the fifth festival opened with something completely different, Valu - The Wild Bull. The film is the directing debut by Umesh Vinayak Kulkarni, who was scheduled to attend the festival.
