#Ujantali, # Som Chakraborty

Panaji, Nov 27 (IBNS) Director of the film 'Ujantali' Som Chakraborty on Friday said no border can separate a human being in his or her motherland.

Interacting with media persons at Meet the Director programme at Media Centre on the sidelines of ongoing 46th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) Mr. Somnath said  he is grateful to IFFI for having selected his film in Indian Panorama.

‘Ujantali’ is a film on a young girl who is compelled to leave her remote village in Bangladesh, along with her father. However, her memories of the days spent there remain strongly etched in her heart. Now she is an old woman and realizes that she may never be able to return to Bangladesh, but once, while returning from her daughter’s house she decides, and with the help of magic wind, to quench her thirst by viewing what is left of her beloved Motherland Bangladesh.

Somnath Chakraboty is a young Bengali film director whose work has met with considerable critical acclaim in recent years, both in his native India and abroad. Som was born and raised in Howrah, West Bengal.

He cut his directorial teeth in Multimedia.

In 2008, he made a debut with short film titled Jalhawar Dinbadal (… a poetry of moments ….. desires ….laughters…. sorrow… ) shown at many national and international festivals. However, with his second documentary movie Divine Expressions, Som attracted serious critical attention.
