Directed by Atanu Biswas, who is a photo journalist by profession, the final poster of the upcoming short film Out of Focus was unveiled recently.
The film is a silent film. The story is about an individual who is a painter and photographer. He lives in a single room with a cat and a plant. The story builds up around these three characters. He takes a photo of himself, his cat and the plant. He discovers that his cat and the plant die after he took their picture. Will he also die? This is what the story is all about.
The director chose the medium of silent film as he did not want language to become a barrier. He wanted his film to be viewed all around the world and hence he stuck to the silent medium.
The film has been shot entirely in Shantiniketan. The music is by Sidhu.
Subrat Dutta is the only cast member in the film.
The editing has been done by Jishnu Sen while the DOP is Ratnadeep Ray. The film is produced by Tarun Das.
The duration of the film is 28 minutes.
The film will be sent to Berlin Film Festival and some other film festivals for screening.
