Dosar, directed by Rituparno Ghosh, following its wins at several film festivals has been invited to The Cannes International Film Festival. Dosar (The Companion) is a poignant film that deals with the subject of infidelity and is filmed in black and white.

At Cannes, the Tous Le Cinemas du Monde is a program according to the Cannes website which is “dedicated to the presentation, by countries invited by the Festival, of a wide spectrum of their cinematic creation. As a sidebar to the Official Selection, this programme enables audiences to discover more amply the vast diversity of national film industries.” It is at this session that Dosar will be screened.
