Pranay Patwardhan "Nafasi" (2011)

Two widely different works today. First this from Supinfocom. A film does not have to be long to pack a punch. Nafasi commences slowly as the live camera tracks its view of a children's picture, wax crayons and sharply dissected paper that gradually takes on the appearance of a divided continent. We note the little girl, almost doll-like, who in animated form comes alive, fleeing in terror from the gunfire that explodes around her. Tristan Powell contributes an all too realistic soundtrack to young director Pranay Patwardhan's simply told short.
