Celebrating Cinematic Excellence: Adieu Godard Premieres on AAONXT on October 4th
AAONXT, Eastern India’s foremost OTT platform, is set to make a groundbreaking addition to its impressive content catalogue with the exclusive premiere of “Adieu Godard.” This extraordinary film, written and directed by the acclaimed National Award winner Amartya Bhattacharyya, takes audiences on a unique cinematic journey that transcends borders.
“Adieu Godard” is a remarkable INDIA/FRANCE co-production, brought to life through a collaboration between Swastik Arthouse, FilmStop Entertainment, and Les Films de la Haute-Vallée. This Odia film embarks on a socio-cultural, comical tribute to none other than the legendary French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard.
The heartwarming yet comical narrative revolves around Ananda, an elderly resident of a conservative Indian village, harboring a secret addiction to pornography. An unexpected twist unfolds when Ananda mistakenly rents a Godard film, under the impression that it contains explicit content.
While his friends are repulsed, Ananda finds himself inexplicably drawn into the world of Godard’s creations. His fascination leads him to propose the audacious idea of hosting a film festival featuring Godard’s works in their tranquil village, setting the stage for a series of humorous and heartwarming events.
“Adieu Godard” made its world premiere at the prestigious Moscow International Film Festival in 2021 and has since graced the screens of approximately 30 international film festivals. The film’s journey has been adorned with accolades, including seven prestigious international awards. Among its notable achievements are the BEST FILM (Indian Competition) award at the Kolkata International Film Festival and recognition for BEST DIRECTOR, BEST ACTOR, and BEST SCREENPLAY at the Siphontum Arthouse Film Festival. This global recognition underscores the film’s thought-provoking narrative and exceptional craftsmanship.
Amartya Bhattacharyya’s ingenious concept of “Godard vs. Porn” captivates audiences by ingeniously juxtaposing Godard’s enlightening influence on Ananda with the villagers’ initial disgust, offering a unique commentary on cinema’s diverse and subjective perceptions. Critics have lauded the film’s cinematography as creative and its acting as nothing short of exceptional.
Kaushik Das, Founder and CEO of AAONXT, expressed his excitement, stating, “We are thrilled to bring ‘ADIEU GODARD’ to our platform, further enriching our collection of original and engaging content. This film’s international success reaffirms our commitment to pushing the boundaries of regional cinema and bringing diverse cinematic experiences to our valued viewers.”
“Adieu Godard” represents the pinnacle of innovation and story
