“The world wants to know, o city, why you slept

While blood was spilt and the starving wept"


Terribly Tiny Talkies in its short film titled ‘Agli Baar’ portrays the perpetual fear surrounding the lives of those living in shanties and those who try to help them.

 

The film in its raw appeal is sure to give you chills. As the story unfurls through darkness and screams, the various repercussions of communal hatred becomes apparent. It shows the selective targeting of minorities, the eternal danger and risks involved in being a social activist, and not to mention the apathy of the state and police. While some of us sleep peacefully at night, the city is submerged in a hideous grief and nobody gives a hoot.

 

Though all of us would like to deny the communal tension pervading our daily lives but writer/director Devashish Makhija has succeeded in reminding us once again that we live in a sectarian nation.
