Best short film at the Cannes (2002), this very very silent film voices the state of women in India.

Films Anonymous, in association with Taj Banjara, will be screening four exciting short films by four different film makers, today at the Anjuman Hall, Taj Banjara. The screenings take place once a month, on the second Sunday. This is the fourth screening session of the club.

It is a club conceptualized and started by a group of film enthusiasts, to propagate the cause of short films. Films Anonymous provides a platform for short filmmakers to screen their films and to have interesting and critical interactive sessions with audience consisting of people from the industry and media.

This movie is directed by Manish Jha, and is a musing on the plight of women in India. The life of these women is a series of physical and mental exploitation. Women have been glorified in story and myth but reality has a different tone. The time has come when women no longer submit to male dominance.

Jha captures this paradox, being lived out in the slums amidst the civilized society. The movie does away with dialogues or music to highlight the main issues related to these women in the city lanes.

"A Very, Very Silent Film" shared the Jury Prize for the best short film in Cannes (2002). Martin Scorsese who headed the Jury said that the award was given for artistic, not political reasons. Abbas Kiarostami declared that Manish Jha was the most promising director he had seen at the festival. The film was also showered with praise by the likes of Sharon Stone, Martin Scorsese and Antonio Banderas.
