a copyright claim by NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation). But I found a trailer and a clip (and then the film). Read on)
SUPERMEN OF MALEGAON
Directed by Faiza Ahmed Khan
A documentary partly produced by KBS (Korean Broadcasting System) and NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation) .
The documentary is about the making of a movie called "Malegaon ka Superman' directed by Shaikh Nasir.
It tells the fascinating story of a ragtag crew of people from Malegaon (in Nashik district of Indian state of Maharashtra) who set out to make a 'Superman meets Bollywood' kind of flick in their own town on a shoestring budget.
The above clip is their final product. The rest of the documentary covering the making has also been uploaded but sadly it has a Japanese voice over.
The director of the film, Faiza Ahmed Khan, has done an brilliant job! She has managed to capture all the flavors, trials and inspirations of the tiny film industry of Malegoan that specializes in spoofs made for the local film market.This year it won jury award for best documentary feature at the Asiatica Film Mediale, Italy's annual Asian film festival.
