Some people would say the source code for the video game by this name would be easier to understand than the plot of this one. All we say is, there's something called creative expression.
The Hyderabad Film Club is screening a film called Tetris, on 28th October, at the Preview Theatre of Prasad Film Laboratories.
The movie has a film writer, cameraman, production manager and the actress set off on a car trip driving through the story. A trip the director chooses to abstain from. He believes it's a story the road will write. All he needs is the writer to refine the route map, a pen, and petrol.
It's a pointless long travel, and the crewmembers fall apart one by one. The actress is left alone with the writer. The travel continues till they meet a dead end. But the story has to return.
The film was among the 17 productions selected from entries from over 1,000 film school works in the Cinefoundation Section, at the Cannes Film Festival, 2006. Anirban Dutta, the director, is a final year student in the Department Of Direction and Screenplay Writing at the Satyajit Ray Film And Television Institute (SRFTI).
As a student at SRFTI, Anirban has made five short films - Tetris, Laid Back, Ekhane Amar Nocturne, Magic Hour, Neon Lights. He has worked as an Assistant Director for Prohor, a Bengali feature film directed by Subhadra Choudhury in 2003. He also worked as a Screenwriter for a Reality TV Show titled Bastab, directed by Amalan Datta for Zee Alpha TV in 2003, and for Aquarium and Neera, two telefilms directed by Subhadra Choudhury in 1999. And finally, he's also been an Assistant Director for Everything Remains, a non-fiction film produced and directed by Amalan Datta in 1998.
