Paper Boats

India / 2021 / Drama / 04:59 min

Two childhood friends reflect about a time they would sit on the terrace of their apartment complex making paper boats. In their childlike wonder they built worlds in that small space, promising each other how they’d walk the path to their dreams. Now grown up they look back at this bittersweet truth on how they got where they wanted to be but lost each other along the way.

I am a 22 year old filmmaker based in Mumbai, graduated with a Bachelors in Creative Arts from Srishti Institute of Art Design and Technology. Since I can remember, the idea of being behind the camera has always driven me. By capturing frames I am able to build connections between the people, places and stories that I came across in daily life. The power to make completely different worlds in the form of films is something that fascinates me about this art. I believe that it is in the simple everyday life where you can find the most extraordinary stories. There is this urge I have to tell stories that move people, even if it does so in the slightest. I’m working on growing and eventually having my films speak to a larger audience.
