Israel filmmaker Nadav Lapid who was the special jury guest at IFFI called The Kashmir Files propaganda and vulgar film this unsavoury comment of the filmmaker didn’t go down well with the makers, and he faced a huge backlash for speaking his mind. And now Nadav has once again spoken his mind and in his interaction with YNet, he reportedly said that he spent his entire day in apprehension and was very much aware that the event was connected to India. “It is not an easy position, because you are a guest, I am the president of the jury here, you are treated very nicely. And then you come and attack the festival. There was apprehension, and there was discomfort. I didn’t know what the dimensions would be, so I did it with some apprehension. Yes, I spent the day apprehensive. Let’s put it this way: I’m happy to be on my way to the airport now”.
The Israeli filmmaker added that someone has to speak up, ” In countries that are increasingly losing the ability to speak your mind or speak the truth, someone needs to speak up. When I saw this movie, I couldn’t help but imagine its Israeli equivalent, which doesn’t exist but could exist. So, I felt I had to, because I come from a place that is itself not reformed and is itself on the way to these”.
