The Lost Poem

Director: Apollo Poetry.

Ekjon Jhumur

Director: Gautam Sen.
Ekjon Jhumur (Jhumur, the girl) is the story of a self-respectful, independent-minded young lady of today in her late twenties. Her consciousness of life, morality and her own entity are intermingled with theater. The undaunted spirit places her above the nitty-gritty of daily life. She seeks emancipation through her medium of self-expression - the theater. The patriarchal society seems not to be tolerant with her sense of emancipation. It tries to delimit her within the conventional notion of womanhood. There's only women's fight against conventional society. A fight - Jhumur's own. Her ammunition - her challenge - the theater.

Mei Mei

Director: Xu Xiaoxi.
Lulu, a high class prostitute, receives constant visits from her neighbor Julian, he believes that she is his missing ex-girlfriend Mei Mei and begs her for the chance to start their relationship again. Lulu rejects him as she thinks that he is just making up stories to win her over and tells him she never wants to see him again. Shoot in 16mm, "Mei Mei" is a beautiful and heartbreaking love story.
