'The Reluctant Fundamentalist' to be honoured with German Film Award for Peace

New Delhi, May 11 : Internationally acclaimed director Mira Nair will be felicitated with the prestigious German Film Award for Peace - The Bridge 2013 for her upcoming film 'The Reluctant Fundamentalist'.


Nair will be conferred with the award on July 4, 2013 for an outstanding film and the direction.

The ceremony of the international film award for peace will take place at the Cuvillies Theatre, Munich.

The Prime Minister of Bavaria, the Bernhard Wicki Memorial Fund and the Umbrella Organization of the German Film Industry will also attend the event.

In the invitation letter, Elisabeth Wicki Endriss, the founder of the Bernhard Wicki Memorial Fund, wrote, "The Reluctant Fundamentalist is an exquisite example for a high-class extraordinary film, for her attitude as a defender of enlightenment and inviolability of human dignity."

"The realism she portrays in her films to the details attains great effects - emotions, extremely breathtaking tensions, and veracity. Thank you very much for this creative powerful and moving picture which we urgent need in a world of violence, prejudice and abuse of power beyond all morality in all our societies," Endriss wrote.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist is a touching and engaging story of a young man chasing corporate success on Wall Street.

The movie, which stars Riz Ahmed, Kate Hudson, Kiefer Sutherland, Liev Schreiber, Shabana Azmi and Om Puri, is set to release on 17th May, 2013.
