The Cornered

I conceived the idea to do my work about the most cornered human’s of our society (At least in India) known as “Hijra” – Unaque or better known to the developed country as Transgender.
Here in our society they pay a visit to the houses where there is a new born; as it is believed that their blessings are the purest.
And also in Indian mythology they have been appeared and used by others time to time. Even lord Arjuna camouflaged himself as a transgender during the end years of his exile and he was then known as ‘BRIHANNALA’. But society has always rejected them from the mainstream life and hence they were cornered over years after years. My film depicts the same how a child been sent to exile being born under 3rd gender and later on when she/he grows up and destined to meet the family again, camouflaged own-self as ‘BRIHANNALA’, but still the emotion towards her Mother remains intact.

Director Biography - Subhasis Das

I hail from a small town of Eastern part of India, name Ramrajatala, Howrah. From childhood I had a dream & also natural inclination towards creative works, but being held from a middle class family I couldn’t pursue it earlier. After completion of my Masters in Business Administration and serving in corporate for many years finally gathered enough courage to quit my job finally and take up Film making seriously. But as a new entrant to the fraternity no one believed me and greed to give jobs, hence I decided to invest my own money (which I received after leaving my job) and made this short film.
