MUMBAI: The Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) has decided to screen six short feature films.
Two are in Hindi titled Shor and Sujata. The other four are Khara Karodpati, Aashpordha, The 5 and Place for Landing.
Shor is a film based on a couple from Banaras who is consumed by its pursuit to survive in the seedy ghettos of Mumbai city. The film portrays the struggle of a working class woman’s endeavours.
Said the director, “The journey so far has been really great. The biggest learning for me was to understand that the most difficult task is to actually assemble a great team which is equally excited about the project hence the success of the film must be accredited to them.”
Directed by Shlok Sharma, Sujata is a 10-minute short film about a woman who takes matters into her own hands when her childhood tormentor hunts her down after years of running away from him.
Avered Sharma, “This is a recognition for all the efforts that my team has put in. I would specially like to thank my scriptwriter Annie for writing such a beautiful script. I’m totally looking forward to get a good response to the film.”
The festival that started on 10 April will go on till 15 April.
