  2. This is a film about precious memories, about the things that we never had the power to keep alive, save in our recollection. Little Sukrit will always remember his grandfather. His memory of him will be coloured by the soft hues of a large house and the chipping paint of an old phonograph. Week after week, a special ritual brought Sukrit and his grandfather together on Sundays. He will never forget how suddenly, on a Sunday like any other, all he was left with was the memory of an old safety razor, a lathered shaving brush and a rusty mirror...

  3. Sixty thousand taxis run on the streets of Mumbai. Each one has a story.

    Shanu has been driving a taxi in Mumbai for three years without moving up or making any money. He doesn’t want much - just enough to be able to take his old Abu Jaan on the Haj one day. Late one night, a passenger leaves an expensive mobile phone behind in his taxi. When Shanu returns it, he gets the phone as a reward. He could either sell it off or he could start using it. Perhaps, after three years of toil on the city’s lonely streets, this is his chance to do better for himself and his family.

    ‘Shanu Taxi’ is Shanu’s little story: about his dreams, his taxi and his city at night.

  4. An Indian carpet tells the story of its birth through the film's main character: the process itself. Tools, method and craftsmen combine as one entity exhibiting the tactile experience of its creation through a tantalizing experience of image and sound.
