Screening The Irishman (2019) in India

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


Martin Scorsese is one of the greatest living directors. It is my wish for his latest film that stars legendary long time collaborators (Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci), The Irishman (2019) be given a release in India. I understand the logistics are hard, so it would most likely have to be a limited screening in select cities. 

Martin Scorsese wants the audience to see this film on the big screen and as film fans I feel like it's our duty to try our best to make that happen. I know many will be okay with The Irishman being released on Netflix later in November, but the truth is a cinematic experience is still unparalleled. A limited run, a week or two before its Netflix release would be enough.

Earlier this year, we got to see this happen with Weathering With You. Let's try to make this happen with this film as well. I doubt this petition will really achieve anything, yet here I am hoping we can make Scorsese proud. A dumb idea, true, but I like to be hopeful. I love Scorsese, Schoonmaker, De Niro, Pesci, and Pacino. Netflix, Vkaao, PVR, if this was possible at the MAMI Film Festival, I am sure a limited release is possible. Please sign this petition if you want to see a film like this in theatres and if you want to support Scorsese. India deserves more films in theatres that aren't just big blockbusters.
