Brief Reel: Kankaanikkum Maranam

Posted on May 19, 2016


I get a lot of requests to watch short films, and I thought I’d use the blog to showcase some of them — this one’s called Kankaanikkum Maranam, adapted from a short story by Azhagiya Periyavan and directed by M Arikarasudhan. Most short film makers concentrate on plot, but this one’s also very well directed, with attention to atmosphere and composition. You hardly feel you’re watching something made using a digital camera. There’s air and light and space, the cinematic equivalent of “literariness.” Hope you like it too.
