HR College,Team 2: Short film
This film was on the theme of ‘Domestic Violence’. The story is about a small girl who is enacting her mother ready in front of the mirror. She innocently wears her mother’s torn sari and applies make up exactly like she has seen her mother with a bruised eye and smudged lipstick. It highlights the viewpoint of the girl where she has seen her mother become a victim of domestic abuse at the hands of her father.
Creative process and production:
The enthusiastic bunch of students from HR College had actually conceived the situation where the girl as getting ready for a fancy dress competition. However, as they could not find a young enough girl, with inputs from the Can Communicate team, they slightly modified the script to highlight domestic violence from the girl’s point of view. The child actor was equally supportive and enthusiastic and the shoot was completed within 2 hours. The film has been shot by taking the girl’s reflection in the mirror and enacting the scene.
Key question: “Why do women face maximum violence at home?”
