Ari Gold wins accolodes for bringing his mother back from death. So what if it's only on the silver screen.

After the stupendous success of the screening of the collection of short films, 'Women In Cinema' and 'Shortcuts', the Shortcuts Film Club is presenting this month's theme called 'The Indian Connection'. This festival is being conducted to promote the films of India that do not fit into the Bollywood framework. This month they have chosen to screen four short films at the Prasad Labs Preview Theatre.

The film Helicopter, directed by Ari Gold, draws inspiration from the tragedy of his mother's death. The movie recounts in impressionistic details, the aftermath of his mother, Melissa's death in the helicopter crash that also killed her boyfriend, the rock music promoter, Bill Graham. Gold through this movie conveys the fractured nature of loss. He shows how memory, despair, indignation, and even elation surge and receede in the mourning mind.

The Helicopter has won many acclodes abroad. It is the Gold Medal winner at the 2001 Student Academy Awards; the Best Experimental Film award at the 2001 USA Film Festival; and the Best Writer and the Best Film at the 2001 New York Magazine Award.
