Animated short film

Debanjan NANDY [India]


This is the story of an elderly widower, told through CGI animation, elaborately made miniature sets, and glass paintings. At a retirement home in West Bengal, India, lives Prakash, along with his wife. Chhaya, though, is actually dead and has become Prakash’s shadow. The widower’s past begins to threaten the present, and soon he must choose between living in the beguiling yet unreal past or living in reality.
