“Teesri Khwaish” at South Asian Shorts Film Festival 2020


Event overview

We are pleased to share that Teesri Khwaish, a film by Purandhya Sharma, Rustam Mazumdar and Shuchi Prasad has been selected as part of the Documentary Panorama Section of the 3rd South Asian Short Film Festival, 2020. The festival will take place from 29th March-9th April 2020 in Kolkata.

Film synopsis: Whether the fog settles on the tracks tonight or not, a cloud of enigma consumes New Delhi Railway Station. Whether the train arrives at platform number 5 or not, we are promised a journey. What happens to the passengers who fall victim to the menacing station, who rely partly on the bookseller and entirely upon fate to reach home safely? Will a third wish be granted? These stories are absurd and precarious in their unfolding, unimaginable yet common, and thus those at the station inevitably become puppets in the hands of God.

CDC films have been screened in the previous two editions of the film festival as well. To know more about the festival: https://sasff.in/
