Chronicle of a Death

Director: Gautam Sen.
The short film narrates the story of a pond died on account of negligence and encroachment by people in the name of development, ignoring the utility of sustenance of natural resources. Without any spoken word and in the form of a monologue, it portrays the journey in visual terms from the lively days of the pond, the decadence and its ultimate death caused by a huge construction developed within its proximity.
