in competition: Azaad
Category: Short Films | Duration: 30 min | Language: Hindi with English ST
Short Block I:
‘Azaad’ portrays the pitfalls of a father-son relationship. The son raises serious accusations against his father, who as a journalist is concerned about his independence, and as a result turns down lucrative offers.
When his father disappears suddenly, his son goes looking for him – and learns about his father’s life and work from scratch. He gradually understands his distant father-figure’s motives, who would rather write social criticisms under the pseudonym Azaad than sell out.
