Director Biography - Samarpan Biswas

Before the COVID period, he started shooting for a documentary, which was stopped due to corona. After the pandemic, he started the pre-production of his first short film 'The River Circle,' and completed it with almost zero budget.

Director Statement

This movie is intensely moulded by the heavy influence of the great director, Mrinal Sen. It's a little endeavour to give a tribute on his birth centenary. I tried to revisit the sentier (pathway) Sen created through his filmy world. My effort was to tell a story in the language of Mrinal Sen's films. If the reminiscence through my films makes anyone nostalgic about Mrinal Sen, I will consider myself successful.
