Director Biography - Parvinder Singh Wraich, Harkiran Kaur Wraich

Both Parvinder and Harkiran, who are directors, are also father and daughter. As a result of their familial relationship, they are able to communicate and understand each other better at work. As a result, they may be able to rely on each other for guidance and support, which can foster a supportive and collaborative work environment. Because of that, they make better movies.

In nearly 20 years, Parvinder began his filmmaking career by producing music albums. After that, he opened his own post-production studio that provided audio and video services. Harkiran also joined her father's team as a young artist and a video editor. Additionally, she had a keen interest in recording studios.

Soon, Swaranjit Kaur Wraich, Parvinder Singh's wife, joined them and they started working as a production company also.

For years, the family worked as a production and post-production company. They then planned to make their own independent films. Vinamarjot Singh Wraich, son of Parvinder and Swaranjit, joined the film industry as an actor and the family started producing movies together.

Director's Note for "Tank Cleaner":

Welcome to "Tank Cleaner," a gripping tale of survival and suspense.

I'm the writer and director, and I'm excited to take you on this intense journey.

In our film, we follow Monti, a young boy trapped for four days in a small water tank. Monti faces numerous challenges inside the water tank, including limited oxygen and water supply, extreme temperature fluctuations, and a constant fear of starvation. In order to find his way out, he has to use whatever limited resources he has. A feeling of isolation and a fear of not being able to escape makes Monti's journey even more intense and suspenseful. And just when things seem impossible, the tank starts filling with water, putting Monti's life in even more danger.

"Tank Cleaner" wasn't easy to make. This film was challenging, experimental and needed a lot of skills and patience to make especially the scenes inside the tank. We employed tight camera angles and limited lighting inside the water tank to create a sense of claustrophobia and darkness, intensifying the sense of danger.

As you watch, I hope you feel the tension and root for Monti's courage. Enjoy the ride!

Warm regards.

Director, "Tank Cleaner"
