Lokmat Media recently produced a film that tackles the very serious issue of social importance – the rise of anger, social disharmony and intolerance. The film, titled ‘Perspective’ has been directed by Adinath Kothare.

 

Speaking on the occasion of the digital launch of the film, Rishi Darda, Joint Managing & Editorial Director, Lokmat Media Pvt Ltd said: “We live in times that are fractured, in a society that is torn between violence, fear anguish and mistrust. We look upon each other as ‘you’ rather than ‘us’ and ‘others’ than ‘we’. We have reached a point where something needs to be don and therefore Lokmat, with the creative articulation of AdinathKothare and with Independence Day here, we tried to give a voice and state what is beyond anything else – just embracing humanity above all with a short film – Perspective.”

 

Added Kothare: “This is a film that raises very fundamental and critical question, without saying a word. It makes us ask them too. It makes us ask, for instance, who strokes the fire, who wants us to be torn apart, who wants us to think of each other as enemies instead of countrymen? It is a film that pushes us to take responsibility for the way in which ‘we’ view the world. A battlefield, or a brotherhood, it’s all a matter of Perspective.”

 

The film made it to the Official Selection for the 15th Indian Film Festival in Stuttgart, the Official Selection for the 18th New York Indian Film Festival, the Best Film on Religion and the Best Silent Film at the Calcutta International Cult Film Festival, the Official Selection for the 8th DadashahebPhalke Film Festival amongst others.
