Shillong May 15: ‘Path’ the first silent short film directed by award-winning khasi film director Pradip Kurbah, a well known Khasi film producer, was screened on Saturday for the first time at the ‘Film Odyssey’ – a photo exhibition event – organised by St. Anthony’s College, Shillong.

Krrishna KT. Borah’s ‘Song for Rain (Boroxun)’ was also screened at the film event. The film has earned its reputation in the international film festivals like OIFFA, Gangneung International film festival of south Korea, SAFFM.

‘Path’ depicts a love story that blossoms out of pandemic, narrating the life of people living in the border areas, and is shot in monochrome. Kurbah said it is the reflection of those people out there, the situation they have been through, and to him it is in monochrome.

Kurbah also explained that the reason for the film being silent or no dialogue is to explore filmmaking and being able to show the emotion of the characters without dialogue is challenging, even as he stressed that learning as a filmmaker doesn’t end.

The Film Odyssey concluded with the movie by Krrishna KT Borah who is an alumni of Anthony’s College, Shillong.

During Q&A session, Krrishna KT Borah said that the film ‘Boroxun’ was completed in 2020 and the film talks about the simplicity of the people in the village, the sacrifice, love as well as their superstitious beliefs.

Photo Exhibition and Film screening were the two events of the Film Odyssey event which was organized by the 6th Semester students of the Mass Media Department of St Anthony’s College, Shillong on May 13-14, 2022.
