Our film provides an opportunity to the world to know and feel the pain
NewDelhi: “The way we live right now suggests there are two different worlds – of “them” and “us”, where “they” are misunderstood by “us”. Our film is that window to see a world which needs to be understood with love, in all its nonconformist ways, so that we can charter a path to assimilate them in one world, where we all co-exist with love and mutual respect.” This was said today by Shri Shreedhar B.S., Director of ‘In Our World’, an IFFI 51 documentary film at the 51st edition of the International Film Festival of India, which delves into the world of autism. He was addressing a press conference on Day 4 (January 19, 2021) of the festival, along with Director Shri Prithvi Konanur and actor Ms. Gunjalamma of another IFFI 51 Indian Panorama film Pinki Elli?.
“Our film provides an opportunity to the world to know and feel the pain which parents of autistic children go through”. Sharing his inspiration behind making the film, Shri Shreedhar said: “The children are looking for love, but they find it difficult to communicate with people in their lives. This is what made me feel that I should be a messenger for these people. I would like to thank the three autistic children for giving the team the recognition it earned today. Thank you to the parents too, as they allowed me to be the medium to take the message to the world.”
