Nooreh

(English)

India | 22 min | Drama | 2018 | Short Film (Live Action) | English

Nestled in the Kashmir valley lies a small village on the India-Pakistan border, always caught in the crossfire between the two warring nations. One night an eight-year-old girl ‘Nooreh’ discovered that the gun battle rages when she sleeps and the bloody duel stops when she kept her eyes open.

বাংলা

ভারত-পাকিস্তান সীমান্তের মধ্যবর্তী স্থানে অবস্থিত ছোট্ট একটি গ্রাম। গ্রামটি কাশ্মীর উপত্যকায় অবস্থিত, যা কিনা সর্বদাই যুদ্ধে জর্জরিত। দেশ দু’টির মধ্যে সবসময়ই গোলা বর্ষণ চলতে থাকে। এক রাতে ওই সীমান্তে বসবাসরত আট বছরের এক কিশোরী, নূরেহ, আবিষ্কার করে, সে যখন ঘুমে থাকে তখন বন্দুক যুদ্ধ শুরু হয় এবং চোখ খোলা রাখলে রক্তাক্ত দ্বন্দ্ব থেমে যায়।

Mr. Ashish Pandey

Ashish Pandey is a passionate film-maker. He thinks that he has evolved and became a better being after going through the journey of crafting a film. Hence, he will continue his quest of seeking truth; truth which is not definite. He will continue to find unheard marginal voices; not to silence others, but to keep them alive.
