"BEAT is a masterful short film: explosive, involving, tense, different, and almost entirely dialogue-free"
- Screen International.

BEAT is an award-winning short film by Aneil Karia about a man walking a paper-thin line between profound joy and complete hopelessness. Shot on 16mm, the film is about the sprawling chaos and oppressive loneliness that coexist in the city, and a man who finds his withdrawal from the world challenged by a visceral force.

The film has screened at over 40 festivals worldwide including BFI London Film Festival, Edinburgh Film Festival, Warsaw, Rhode Island, Melbourne, Brest European Short Film Festival, Slamdance and Encounters, where the film won the New European Talent Award.

SURGE - Aneil's first feature - will star Ben Whishaw and is currently in development with Rook's Nest and Creative England. Find out more at aneilkaria.co.uk
