1. A finalist film commission from The Doorpost Film Project 2008

    "Rarely is a short film able to take you from laughter to tears - 'Supraman' genuinely amused and moved me... Combining the charm of Amelie with the vision of Slumdog Millionaire, this short punches well above its run-time"
    - Oscar-Nominated Director, Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth, Bandit Queen, Four Feathers)

    'Beautifully directed and full of the natural optimism inherent to the Indian spirit'
    - Oscar-winning screenwriter, Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours, The Full Monty)

    Supramanya (Supraman) is a young Indian boy whose blind mother is struggling to make ends meet. When she gives up on taking care of him, Supraman takes matters into his own hands...
