Sexy Durga’ wins Hivos Tiger Award

In a first for any Indian film, independent Malayalam film-maker Sanal Kumar Sasidharan’s ‘Sexy Durga’ has won the Hivos Tiger Award 2017 at the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR). ‘Sexy Durga’ premièred in Rotterdam on January 27 and is Sasidharan’s third feature film after Oraalppokkam (Six Feet High, 2014) and Ozhivudivasathe Kali (An Off-Day Game, 2015), both of which were critically well-received.
The award is a big win for the film-maker, who had crowd sourced the funds for his first feature film. Shortly after the announcement, Sasidharan wrote on Facebook, “This is something for Team Sexy Durga and indie movement in Malayalam. Thanks everyone. Remember my friends who supported me making my first film. Thank you. Thanks IFFR.”
