Prathyayam

#
Director: Rajesh Touchriver.
Provocative, shocking and surprisingly tender amidst an explosion of unbridled emotions, “Prathyayam”(Trust) in telugu and “Ente…”(Mine…) in malyalam explores the consequences of sex trafficking, testing the vulnerability of trust in human relations. Srinivas(Siddiq) is a wonderful and devoted father to Durga(Anjali Patil), and he provides her the best. Working in the city and maintaining his family in a small town works well for him for years. One day everything is shattered when Durga comes unannounced to the city to appear for an interview concerning her college admission. Durga’s life is brutally torn apart as Srinivas wrestles with grief, remorse, self pity and guilt.

Communication

Director: Methil Komalankutty.
The old man in the family feels that the other members of the family are totally insensitive to his attempts at communicating with them and even to his presence among them. Tasting the bitterness of being marginalized and feeling the pangs of dreary loneliness, he looks around for solace and finds a reflection of himself in the lonely ornamental fish in the aquarium. He tries to fondle the fish. It is only natural that his attempts at fondling the fish are mistaken as the manifestation of an old man’s deranged mind.

PARK IT RIGHT

Director: Donny Kingsley Okoh.
Being a Migrant worker and student with an accent in the UK is a big problem for Chris and his colleagues and they embark on a mission to uplift the image of traffic wardens and are determined to go extra miles. Albeit the daily difficulties inherent in being a traffic warden, Chris, Emeka, Sanjay, Everton, Heather, Colin and Lucy utilize all their skills to show the public that their temporary career path do not define who they are and that whenever people see them, they should not get scared that they will be fined for not packing properly rather; they should be ready to be entertained by their wits and dancing capabilities. Their quest to help change the views of the public about traffic wardens and gain acceptability is dealt a heavy blow when Colin falls in love with a fellow student (Jade). In his “never say never” attitude, Colin decides to sing to her about his undying love in front of the whole class and in turn, makes himself and his colleagues a laughing stock.
