Naalu Pennungal (Four Women), master auteur Adoor Gopalakrishnan's celebrated film about a virgin (Geetu Mohandas), a prostitute (Padmapriya), a housewife (Manju Pillai) and a spinster (Nandita Das) will be screened at the Viennale, the largest and most exciting film event in Austria that opens in Vienna on October 17. Gopalakrishnan will answer questions about the film after the screening. "A couple of my films have been shown in Vienna in the past. But this is the first time I am accompanying my film Naalu Pennungal to the Viennale. This is indeed a privilege and honour for me and I look forward to discussing my work with the audience," Gopalakrishnan said. Naalu Pennungal is the adaptation of four short stories written by Jnanapith award winner Thakazhi Sivasankara Pillai. It has already been screened at over 20 international film festivals. Its world premiere was at the Toronto International Film in September 2007 and it was later screened at the 51st London film festival. During the festival, about 300 features, documentaries and short films will be screened from around the world. Mumbai-based filmmaker Nishtha Jain's extraordinary documentary Lakshmi and Me that explores the relationship between the filmmaker and her domestic help will be screened in the documentary section.
