DV Awards 2012

The DV Awards is a new and exciting international competition celebrating outstanding creative and technical achievements in the emerging world of digital video production. From independent films, commercials, corporate communications and industrial videos to 3D animation, special effects and event videos, dozens of categories will be recognized.

With the advent and increasing affordability of digital video, a rising number of outstanding productions are not being produced in multimillion dollar film and television studios, but in small desktop studios, manned by a few determined and creative individuals. The DV awards were created to honor these individuals and their accomplishments.

KARAYILEKKU ORU KADAL DOORAMM (A SEA AWAY TO THE SHORE)

Director: VINOD MANKARA.
This film is a portrayal of art and artist transcending time. Adopting a ‘magical realist’ approach where reality and fantasy are mixed, the film is about humane values like love, kindness and friendship that we are fast losing in our troubled times. The nostalgia about the past appears here not as something lost but as a reminder of the power of love, with the accompaniment of music adding to its depth and poignancy. The protagonist Anoopchandran who is a writer has premonitions about death through his ESP (in a way, every artist has ESP of some sort). He resorts to writing a novel to defeat death, and what he writes and his social life are not different, but they often run into each other, unconsciously and sometimes deliberately. Many a time he confuses Gatha, his friend and lover and others about the ‘reality’ of other characters. He is also able to convince Gatha that Sathyabhama is real and even prompt her to go in search of her. Through all this, different dimensions of love –fulfilled, unrequited, yearned for… - surface in the narrative, always affirming the primacy of love. The film ends when Anoop completes his novel and confesses to Gatha about everything. When he tells her that Sathyabhama was a figment of his imagination and that it was only an occasion for them to love her, she sobs. Anoop leaves his mobile phone on top of a mountain in the Himalayas and walks away to eternity, as if death was not an end but only another beginning. Through his writing he overcomes death and breaks the shackles of time. In a way, what he gifts to his lover is a ‘never ending call’. Maybe he will return from the oblivion of death to love and comfort her again… This film is an attempt to portray the victory of art and artist over time, and to reaffirm art as a redeemer of life and love.
