Short film using puppets



NirmalaNiketan: Short film using puppets

Synopsis:
The enthusiastic and creative group of students from this college they came up with a story portraying gender bias at the workplace. The story unfolds in a cottage industry owned by a man, where village women make papadsand other food items. They laughingly describe the situation where the man simply orders them around and verbally abuses them while they slog it out to produce the products. It ends with an indirect threat that if not for us (women), the man would have nothing to feel so vain about!

Creative process and production:
The lyrics penned by the students painted a grim picture, but on the suggestion of the Can Communicate team they re-wrote it to present the situation in a lighter and tongue-in-cheek manner. As the students had the prior experience of puppetry, particularly for social causes, they were allotted this format. They also had puppets in college which was willing to provide them for the shoot. Against a chroma screen, the puppet show was shot and the song recorded separately. In the post-production, colourful backgrounds depicting the small scale industry and music have been added

Key question:Why is women’s work so undervalued?
