Bumbai Bird is our first feature film in Hindi, currently in post-production.
It tells the story of a soul which is encountering different unconscious people in Mumbai, and going backward in time to understand what happened to them, how were their lives and what destiny meant to them. The film is mixing different levels of reality with poetic devices. It also has the particularity to be written, shot and edited in the same time, following patterns of improvised performance, evolutive writing after editing, inspiring new camera work as the film takes shape. This experience is based on a concept and treamtent by writer-director Kamal Musale.
The movie Bumbai Bird is a coproduction between India and Switzerland, aimed at European markets and festivals.
Release in 2013.
Our next production is The Hermit, a black comedy about property and identity.
