What do you do when you lose your job and livelihood? If you are Guna, our protagonist, it’s time to start living your dreams and found your own theatre troupe.

Mor Mann Ke Bharam
Do you make art for yourself or your No. 1 fan?
Language: Hindi
Awards: Special Jury Prize – Mumbai Film Festival
Cast: Aparnaa, Ramesh Pani, Yuvraj Singh Azad
 

An experiential narrative from the directorial trio, Karma Tapaka, Heer Ganjwala, and Abhishek Varma, the film explores the dilemmas of an artist. Does the writer only write what he wants to? Does he take into consideration the reader’s wants? What happens when the lines between what he writes and his life blur? The results are a surrealist novel for our author and more than food for thought for the viewer.
Why watch?
The touch of humour and a whimsical bent make this film that deals with a complex subject an absolute delight to watch.
 
La Cage
An encounter brings songs to those who can’t sing.
Language: French
Awards: Anima (Belgium, 2017)
 

A bird who can’t fly but can sing meets a bear in a cage who can’t do either. The encounter between the two characters leads to a story of them rising above their individual limits together. The filmmaker Loïc Bruyère conceived the film when he was stuck indoors for almost a year and the significance of both loneliness and the gift of company shine through.
Why watch?
Selected for over sixty festivals around the world, the animated film is a visual treat for both the adult and child in you.
 
Hum Chitra Banate Hai
Stories with pictures are not just for children.
Language: Hindi
Awards: Best Animation Film – National Film Awards, Gold Award
 

In Prof. Nina Sabnani’s feature, age-old Bhil myths and art styles are woven together with animation. Magical and moving, it is more than a creation myth retold on the screen. The National Award winning film is a masterpiece of filmmaking, storytelling, and ethnography.
Why watch?
Find out how painting is more sacred ritual than hobby for India’s third largest tribal community through an animation style you’ve never seen before.
