Director Biography - Kaushani Majumder

Born in Calcutta in 1997, Kaushani Majumder's love for art and film led her to major in animation at MITID, Pune. Her directorial debut came with her student film, Forever Yours, Bansho (2018), an animated short which screened at multiple festivals around the world.

She went on to get her MA in Animation from the Royal College of Art, where she directed and animated her new short film, Biscoot (2023).

Kaushani creates animated films and stories driven by vivid colours, everyday human life and nature. Through her work, Kaushani aims to use an ambiguity of gender and identity, and at the core of her practice is a deep appreciation and celebration of the mundane.

Director Statement

I made Biscoot as a way of comprehending the internal conflict between exploring the world and leaving one's home behind in the process. Using colours and letterboxing as narrative devices, I intend to portray the transformative journey of a person into unfamiliar waters, and how this moulds their changing identity.
