Private Project

Land of the singing bird

Ameya Gore, a direction student at the Film & Television Institute of India, is shifting into a new room in his hostel. As it coincides with his final year documentary project, he decides to make a film about the same.

But what begins as a seemingly mundane event, branches out into myriad journeys. It encounters an astronomer, an ascetic and a Hindustani Classical vocalist on the way - all of them following quests of their own.

The boundaries between dream and reality, the self and the other, fiction and non-fiction blur, as the filmmaker discovers a sense of unity in all their stories. He also comes to terms with his own longing for oneness, a search for home - literally and metaphorically.

Explorative, experimental, yet deeply personal, 'Tethe Asel Raava' pushes the boundaries of a documentary film, attempting a novel, fluid form, akin to the ebb and flow of the human mind.
