Making a short film amid a host of odds and still enjoying every moment of the journey is probably the most enriching memory that I have for my first short film. With some due accolades from the international film festivals and a prime time telecast in one of the major national channels in India, “The Cemetery” has come a long way.
I am sharing this for those who have missed it and for those who would like to watch something different from the regular films they are subjected to. So, here you go… Do share your feedback and leave your comments.
5 Reasons why should you watch this film:
- Captured in the backdrop of the oldest colonial cemetery of South East Asia, The Cemetery is a short film depicting a timepiece of human behavior in solitude and distress. It is an example of my understanding of an attempted relationship that culminates with a subtle understanding of human feelings.
- The film was showcased by NDTV Prime which narrates a surreal story about a woman and an old man and their chance encounter in one of the colonial cemeteries in Calcutta.
- The film is devoid of dialogues; however a soothing music accompanied by a solemn narration takes the story ahead.
- Watch out Barun Chanda in a very different character as he plays a visitor and a story seeker in The Cemetery. He along with Tanusree Chakraborty who plays Carol pulls out amazing performances to justify this otherwise alternative attempt to capture unsaid or indescribable human emotions.
- The Cemetery was selected as an official entry in the prestigious Worcestershire Film Festival and was applauded for being one of the most poetic and musically enriching films in the festival.
