Director Biography - Debraj Pal

I am currently a final year undergraduate student of Statistics and an avid film lover based in India, with the love for storytelling and cinema running deep in my blood. This is my first film, and it has been a long standing dream of mine to make a movie, ever since I started understanding story development, cinematography, frames, camera movement and directing nuances in films I watch. This particular film stems from my desire to make something which reminds people of the high number of domestic violence cases against women in society today, especially in the pandemic year. I hope to keep making more films on issues from everyday life around me that interest and appeal to me, and wherever I find a beautiful story that can be spun and visually illustrated.
