India-born doctor’s film set for Cannes

March 28, 2008

A film produced by an India-born doctor, which questions the conservative American mindset on stem cell research, is set to be premiered at the Cannes this year.

 The film is based on the novel of Dr Shelley Chawla, who practices medicine in US. His book Hope.. in vitro was released last year.

 The film will be up for at MIPTV Cannes in April 08 and the Cannes Film Market in May.


 A Kansas film director, Rich Ambler has directed this movie, which also stars Inder Mishra, an Indian actor who played a lawyer in ‘A mighty heart’.

 Chawla’s script highlights the paradoxes of American conservatives who consider stem cell research as ”immoral”.

 This film has highlighted the controversies surrounding stem cell research. I read this news on NDTV 24×7. With good voice and picture quality DirecTV makes it possible to access this channel in the US.
