Interacting with media in the 44th International Film Festival of India (IFFI), South African director/writer/journalist Andrew Worsdale appreciated the Indian film industry for producing a wide variety of films.

 He said that South African film industry is in the growing stage and collaboration between India and South Africa in Cinema could add to a great significance in the art of filmmaking. 

As a film maker Andrew Worsdale has made several shorts and produced some documentaries including the cult underground feature-film ‘Shot Down’, which was banned in his home country. 

Talking about his film ‘Durban Poison’ which is being screened at IFFI, he said that the movie depicts noir romance set amongst the marginalized white underclass. 

Inspired by a true story, this is a road movie that follows a police investigation into four murders and charts the doomed romance of the outlaw lovers. 

He appreciated IFFI for giving a single platform for films of different genre, ethnicity and cultures. 

He said that India and South Africa share the history and culture which could be a nice business platform for Indian film makers in South Africa.
