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.


Hindi Film with English Subtitles (27 mins)

Escort is the story of a blind social worker living and working in a small town and his relationship with his replacement escort—an unemployed young farmer trying to find a life of dignity while his father battles a rising debt. The two find themselves dependent on the other for the fundamental aspect of their survival—dignity. But what happens when one’s dignity comes at the cost of another’s?

Directed by Asmit Pathare


Hindi-English Film (10 mins)

A heartfelt story about Diya and Rehan, a couple embracing adoption. Diya defies stereotypes, forming her own views on adoption, while Rehan battles societal misconceptions. Through their conversation, they dismantle these biases and welcome a new family member and complete their home (ghar).

Directed by Sreejone


Two Way Street
Hindi Film with English Subtitles (22 mins)

An ordinary taxi ride becomes a battleground when the taxi driver refuses to enter a particular lane. The passenger, in turn, decides to not alight the vehicle until he reaches his destination. What ensues is a projection of an inherent bias of the taxi driver against a particular community and the defiance of the passenger to end up as a victim of discrimination.

Directed by Asmit Pathare
