Agartala, Dec 2 (PTI) National Award winning film from Tripura 'Yarwng' (Roots), made in Kokborok language, will be screened in Paris on December eight at the Maison Des cultures du Monde under the patronage of Program Sorosoro of the Chirac Foundation. Yarwng, the opening film of the Indian Panorama section at India international Film Festival of India (IFFI Goa) in 2008, had brought to Tripura its first National Film Award in 2010. ''Yarwng has been a typical instance of a film being a vehicle for the uplift of a language and culture,'' says the film's director, Salesian Father Josheph Pulinthanath. The director hopes the Paris screening of the film with subtitles in French will 'further open up avenues for the development of Kokborok language'. ''It's wonderful to know that our film is doing its bit as an ambassador for Kokborok culture,'' says Pulinthanath who has embarked on making his third Kokborok feature film. The 60-member Yarwng crew braved several odds to make the film happen, the second one from the director in the language, the first being 'Mathia' (Bangle) on the social evil of witch-hunt. The story of the 95-minute feauture film revolves around large-scale displacement in Tripura when the newly-built Dumbur dam submerged huge tracts of arable land in the fertile Riama valley about 40 years ago.
