Pan Nalin’s “Angry Indian Goddesses” has rung up a slew of licensing deals with established European distributors.
The film, which is represented by Mongrel International, was sold to ARP for France, NFP for Germany, and Filmcoopi for Switzerland.
Pitched as “India’s first female buddy movie,” the film’s story starts with a surprise bachelorette party in Goa, before things take a more serious turn.
It plays this week (Sept. 18) at the Toronto Film Festival as a special presentation. All seven of the leading actresses are expected to attend.
It was produced by Gaurav Dhingra, Nalin’s partner in India’s Jungle Book Entertainment, and co-produced by Sol Bondy of Germany’s One Two Films.
“We fell for these strong, powerful women, and the way Pan Nalin portrays them with empathy and love. We are all Angry Indian Goddesses,” ARP co-chief Michele Halberstadt told Variety.
