It is a happy reminder that the film is relevant and glad we made it. I believe only when stories are authentic and rooted in their own contexts, they transcend cultures and borders and become part of world cinema. I am glad that it will be available in the library for students, filmmakers and writers. The overwhelming response that we have got for Zwigato from both audiences and critics has opened unexpected doors such as this. Hope OTT platforms are reading this! I think it’s time to give the audience the opportunity to see Zwigato. Thank you Library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences for this honour!”
The film premiered at Toronto Worldwide Film Celebrations in 2022 and is the story of a man who takes up the job of a food delivery agent after getting fired as the floor manager of a factory.
