The Hive Film Club in association with Ambal Productions presents a selection of two short films.

 

Aate Diyan Chidiyan / Paper Planes. This film is a series of montages or scenarios, which have taken a form of Short Film. This experimental #shortfilm endeavors to bring forth poetic encounters from normal day-to-day life in the foothills of #Jammu. This visual narration tries to delve into Man’s relation with Nature and how changing seasons bring different shades and hues to his relationship with nature, where “Bird” has been used as a metaphor for attachment and longing.  

 

Qalandar. The film was shot in and around the village named Guru Harsahai in Ferozepur district of Punjab, India. The story is partially biographical of a man from the same village, who is also a Creative Producer of the film. Shot in four days with the help of colleagues, friends, and villagers who also played key roles on and off screen. Even the production was executed by the villagers apart from boarding, lodging, location scouting and the music. Except for the protagonist rest of the cast is all non-professional actors. Actor, director, and Cinematographer traveled from Bombay and the rest of crew was local or sourced from the neighboring city of Jammu.

Qalandar Synopsis

Music, cinema and books interest him and thus make him a complete misfit in his village and family.
