Online geht die Filmreihe weiter: Shuruaat Ka Interval

Mitten in der indischen Filmwoche wurde das Kommunale Kino Weiterstadt geschlossen. Nun hat uns einer der Produzenten, von denen wir die Filme teilweise exklusiv nach Weiterstadt geholt haben, ein Programm von 8 Kurzfilmen online zur Verfügung gestellt (zwei davon ohne Untertitel).

DIG Darmstadt
DIG Darmstadt


Director: Shishir Jha
Synopsis: Good and Evil…Yin and Yang…the continuous dichotomy of life. The path is not always a choice. A subtle interpretation of this paradox. Does the butcher only kill?

The Last Audition

Director: Krishan Hooda
Synopsis: Anand Kumar, is a struggling actor consumed by the struggle. The attempt to land a role, and the effects of the audition take over his life. He lives, breathes, sleeps this process. A dark tale of one’s life when you cannot differentiate life and camera!

No Exit

Director: Ankit Tripathi
Synopsis: Is life a burden? Is memory the only thing which binds us together? Is that the reason for our misery? Cycle of life and death- is there an exit option?


Director: Amrit Raj Gupta
Synopsis: In the best traditions of farce- what happens when your main character disappears during the interval of a play. Do you rework the play? Can you rework the play? How do the other characters react? A laugh fest when the characters of Ramayan become real backstage.

Interval 3D (no subtitles)

Director: Palash Vaswani
Synopsis: In the best traditions of Ramsay Brothers, what happens when a character from a B Grade horror flick meets the audience. Shock, awe, funny- a ridiculous scenario from which you can only laugh your way out!

Bubbles and Stars

Director: Rukshana Tabassum
Synopsis: If the characters of a play were to indulge in their reverie, would their interactions be meaningful? Shot completely in black & white, a beautiful tale which reminds you of films of the silent era and what actually makes us love films

Final Interval (no subtitles)

Director: Aarti Bagdi
Synopsis: This is the story of a housewife, a mother, a mother-in-law, a grandmother, a superwoman. She binds the extended family together. And she needs a break!

The Gatekeeper

Director: Atanu Mukherjee
Synopsis: Gatekeeper revolves around the life of a man who guards a railway crossing. His only source of excitement in life is watching the trains passing by. Is there something which intrudes in this monotony? Or can this monotony be enjoyable?

Das nächste INDIA Filmfest findet 2021 statt.

Die Deutsch-Indische Gesellschaft und das Kommunale Kino Weiterstadt laden auch dann wieder ein zu einer indischen Filmwoche.

Wir versuchen, ein vielfältiges, interessantes Programm zusammenzustellen, das indische Independent- und Dokumentar-Filme und natürlich auch ein wenig Bollywood enthält.
