EXCLUSIVE: Joris van Wijk of Amsterdam-based Le Boxeur Films has boarded Khushboo Ranka and Vinay Shukla’s documentary Proposition For A Revolution as a co-producer.
Produced by Anand Gandhi and Ruchi Bhimani, the project is screening in the Work-in-Progress Lab at this year’s Film Bazaar.
Joris van Wijk previously produced and directed documentary Veneer (2007) and executive produced Dutch features, such as Ben Sombogaart’s award-winning The Storm (2009).
“I find this documentary to be very relevant for an international audience and I was keen to become part of the process of helping to bring it out,” said Van Wijk. “Khushboo and Vinay have rendered the story with cinematic ease, which is rare to find in such young talent.”
Scheduled for delivery in 2015, the documentary follows India’s Aam Aadmi Party, an offshoot of the anti-corruption Janlokpal movement.
The filmmakers ran a successful crowdfunding campaign for the project, which also received support from Busan’s Asian Network for Documentary (AND) Fund.
