Eight short films about same-sex relationships will be shown in classrooms to encourage inclusivity.

KOLKATA: Following the reopening of educational institutions in the state, eight short films on same-sex relationships created by young filmmakers that have been shortlisted for Prayasam’s Bad and Beautiful World Film Festival will be screened at several schools. Prayasam, a partner organization of UNICEF, works to foster an environment where the youth can be self-empowered. Salim Shekh, Manish Chowdhury, Saptarshi Ray, Salim Shekh, and Avijit Marjit are young filmmakers who are from Dakhindari, Mahishbathan, and Nazrul Pally. They attend Prasayam Visual Basics, the only independent film school supported by Adobe in Asia. The screenings’ primary goal is to support inclusive education so that LGBTQ students will not feel alone or unwelcome. The movies, titled RESH (reverberance), deal with fictionalized accounts of same-sex relationships to explore a variety of topics like companionship, child abuse, acceptance, identity crisis, and a spectrum of other human emotions, according to Prayasam director Prasanta Roy. The execution of some of the ideas could be better, but some of the concepts are intriguing. For example, in Salam Shekh’s “Dekha,” a meeting between a gay son and his father is depicted. In “Dakkhina,” a male escort who is chauffeured about the city by an elderly guy, the idea of dignity is explored. “Some of my friends who are male escorts have maintained that self-respect is very important for them. Salim Shekh, the film’s 23-year-old filmmaker, said he wanted to “bust the myth that society has about their self-esteem for their life’s choices.” Durbin is edgy. It looks at how a journalist confides in his live-in partner about the crisis in his life following the death of his father, who he later discovered was having a fulfilling relationship with his friend. Director Saptarshi Ray, 24, told TOI that finding the right actors and locales was difficult. After hearing the plot, the actors returned. Deya Neya incorporates the class difference within the context of a developing connection between a man and a food delivery kid, which makes it all the more crucial to exhibit these movies in order to remove these inhibitions, according to Ray. The films’ 24-year-old filmmaker Manish Chowdhury stated, “In just over 15 minutes, I have tried to explore how socio-economic hurdles pose as greater problems for the thriving of such relationships.” The premieres will take place on December 3 at the 8th Bad and Beautiful World Film Festival at Kalanjali Art Space.
