Lakshmy Ramakrishnan’s critically acclaimed House Owner was screened, in the Indian Panorama section at the International Film Festival of India 2019, that is being held in Goa.
Following the screener the director said, “This is an unforgettable moment which has motivated and encouraged us, the cast and crew of House Owner. Most importantly, to have our Honourable Minister Kadambur Raju attend IFFI, representing Tamil Nadu’s participation, was encouraging and reassuring for film makers from here. He acknowledged my presence and very proudly spoke of my work as a film maker and host of Solvathellam Unmai. I earnestly thank him from bottom of my heart for such a gesture. I thank IFFI for gifting us a valuable experience, it was a revelation indeed. The South Indian film chamber represented by Ravi Kottarakkara and his team, did their best to extend support to film makers from the south.”
Furthermore, she called her presence at IFFI a learning experience saying, “There were so many extraordinary filmmakers who were simple, unassuming, normal people, not celebrities, who didn’t have PR people to promote them, just like me! It was wonderful to be one of them and realise there is so much to learn and grow and so much pleasure in being simple.”
