Majid Majidi
The renowned Iranian film maker Majid Majidi will open the ‘Soul of Asia’ segment tomorrow at the 44th IFFI in Goa. 

Introduced last year as a special segment, ‘Soul of Asia: Cinema of Mysticism’ will celebrate spirituality, so much integral to the way of living in this part of the globe, in the same vein this year. 

The segment will open with the screening of ‘The Patience Stone’ by the much acclaimed Afghan-French author, Atiq Rahimi. 

The movie, in a war-torn Afghanistan, sears into the recesses of a woman’s soul searching life beyond existence. 

The other films in the section include Mohsen Makhmalbaf’s ‘The Gardener’, Pan Nalin’s’ ‘Faith Connections’ and Vincent Sandoval’s ‘Apparation’. ‘Indian Master of Masters: Osho brings into focus the mystic’s contemporary creative interpretations and insights into the wisdom of world masters.
