Chronicle of Space, Sthalpuran
Director: Akshay Indikar
Cast: Neel Deshmukh, Anushree Wani and Rekha Thakur
India, 2020, 85 mins, Marathi with English subtitles
Dighu, an eight-year-old boy, migrates to the coastal area of Konkan with his mother and sister, amidst torrential rain and harsh terrain. Reeling from the absence of his father and the struggles of keeping his family safe, young Dihu struggles with being forced to grow up all too soon. Seeing the world through the eyes of a child can yield to some of the most sublime moments in cinema. A child's gaze, bursting with wonder and innocence can give us a new way of seeing the world. Sthalpuran does just that, painting a delicate portrait of childhood and how it can be full of pain and pleasure.
