Mitu Misra’s Lies We Tell, shot by ace cinematographer Santosh Sivan was showcased at MAMI film festival yesterday. The screening was graced by Mitu’s friend and guru Imitiaz Ali and Sheshank Ghosh, who showed their support to the debutant director.
When asked about Mitu Misra, Imtiaz says, “Mitu Misra is a old friend of mine and our connection is of Films. He has sent me different kind of films to watch over the period. I hope he does very well in the industry.”
Mitu adds further, “On script of Lies We Tell, Imtiaz has been by teacher from pen to paper. I had written five paragraphs and Imtiaz narrowed to one line that was the trigger for me.”
Lies We Tell is an unflinching British thriller about loyalty, betrayal, and revenge. The film revolves around a trusted driver, who must deal with his dead boss’s Muslim mistress, her dark past pulling him into a life-and-death showdown with her notorious gangster cousin/ex-husband.
Lies We Tell stars Gabriel Byrne, Sibylla Deen, Jan Uddin, Emily Atack and Harvey Keitel in prominent role and will have an international release on 2nd February, 2018.
