Tasher Desh, All Lights Film Magaizne, AFM

 

Acclaimed director Kaushik Mukherjee’s latest feature film ‘Tasher Desh (The Land of Cards)’ will compete in the ‘Cinema XXI’ section of 7the edition of Rome Film Festival, which will run from 9th – 17th November 2012. The film is based on a dance drama composed by Rabindranath Tagore.

The Rome Film Festival has four sections, Competition, Out of Competition, CinemaXXI and Prospettive Italia. The jury of the ‘CinemaXXI’ section is led by Douglas Gordon with Hans Hurch, Ed Lachman, Andrea Lissoni and Emily Jacir. The film in the section will compete for the ‘CinemaXXI’ Award.

Shot in 25 days with an international cast and crew on the beaches of Sri Lanka and the ruins of Bengal ‘Tasher Desh’ is all about new ideas, revolution and self liberation. The storyline goes like, in a lonely railway station, somewhere in Kolkata, a storyteller spoke to trains. He wanted to tell a story. It was not a new story. But for him, it was the only story to tell. Inside the darkness of his mind, his story unfolds a kaleidoscope of fantasy.

Once upon a time, there was a prince. A victim of his destiny, he was banished with his mother to a dark and distant prison palace. Here he grows up, without hope, without a future, with his mother drowning herself in alcohol. His depression countered only by his friend, the merchant’s son, who argues that it was indeed the prince’s choice to remain locked in. Realizing the extent of his despair, the friend invokes the Oracle. A mysterious figure, the Oracle passes on a message of liberation. The prince realizes that he is indeed a prisoner of his mind. He takes a decision, to leave. He has a final moment with his mother, who lets him go. The prince takes hold of his destiny, and sets off on a voyage with his friend, searching for an adventure.

The last feature film by Kaushik Mukherjee, ‘Gandu’ had triggered a lot of controversy in Berlin Film Festival2011.
