It Is My Duty To Bring Awareness, Says Dhaniram Tisso
PANAJI, (IANS) – Dhaniram Tisso, producer of Karbi feature film ‘Mirbeen’ said that as a filmmaker it is his duty to bring awareness and to tell the story of how people rose from ashes.
‘Mirbeen’ is an authentic portrayal of the 2005 extremist strife that engulfed Karbi Anglong. “Our film is a story about truth and facts,” said Director Mridul Gupta.
Director Mridul Gupta, writer Manimala Das, and producer Dhaniram Tisso of the Karbi feature film Mirbeen interacted with delegates on the sidelines of the 54th International Film Festival of India (IFFI).
Speaking about the selection of the movie Tisso said, “As a filmmaker, it is my duty to bring awareness, to tell the story of how people rose from ashes and bloomed out of the shadows of a gloomy past.”
Das said that roots are used throughout the film in many shots giving a strong symbolic arch to the storyline – where people are sustaining attacks to their very roots yet still emerging with resilience.
Das also said that the music in the film is truly organic using only traditional Karbi tunes. “We hope audiences can empathize with Karbi through our film and feel the struggle of Karbi,” said writer Manimala Das.
Representing the vibrant and dynamic Assamese cinema, the feature Mirbeen, is one of the 15 exceptional films competing for the prestigious Golden Peacock at IFFI 54 and was screened under the Indian Panorama section at the festival.
