Short Film Screenings
An NCPA Presentation in collaboration with White Wall Screenings
There are so many wonderful short films being made in India, with auteurs at work in their own regions, and bold, new voices who are experimenting with form and technique. Short Film Corner hopes to connect movie lovers with these films and open a dialogue with filmmakers, who in turn, get a chance to connect with their audiences.

When Plato Came Home
Silent Film (22 mins)
When Plato Came Home is an adaptation of the book The Allegory of the Cave by Plato. This silent experimental film looks at our intolerant society and deals with the question, what would we do if Plato knocked on our door today with his philosophies, with his beliefs, with the truth? Will we open our eyes or shut the door on him, denying everything that questions our age-old belief systems?
Directed by Vidar Joshi
