B-Minor. ( A short independent film) by Sudipto Roy.

An attempt to explore the boundaries of subtle story-telling. Short and succinct. With layers of intrigue woven in to a taught storyline. The scope was 15 minutes and the belief rested on the premises of a departure from the usual formulaic ‘short’ format. Yes, we made this film with a belief that our audience would like to try their otherwise similar cinema viewing experience with a different approach.

Shadows of Fire : A Butoh performance by Naireet Basak

“Where the living death doesn’t exist, life takes its place. Just as the person who loses his shadow becomes the shadow of himself ‘

This is a solo Butoh performance that delves into the subconscious of our body and mind and tries to call out to the fire hidden within us; but does fire have a shadow? This piece explores the birth of an untamed creature, its growth and its play with the different elements found in nature. It looks for freedom from all these, with help from the balance of the ambers and blues in a body, but gets stuck in some dilemma of energy. This creature tries to intimidate the watchful eyes and reacts according to the energy of the place of its birth every time. Eventually it either escapes the cacophony of the watchful eyes or it perishes.
