BOAP at Santa Fe Film Festival


Our new film Birth Of A Pillow by Sharmy Pandey and featuring background score by New Mexico based Sama'Duo will have its world premiere as part of the Santa Fe Film Festival.

Birth Of A Pillow will be screened on Sunday, Dec 3, 2:00 p.m. at the Santa Fe Film Center, 1616 St. Michael's Drive in the Michael's Village West Mall.

Birth Of A Pillow (2006) World Premiere
(India, USA)

"Birth of a Pillow" is a film with no dialogue portraying personal responses to sexuality in present-day India. At the juncture of external stimulus, sociocultural conditioning, and personal drive lies the deepest human cores of fear, guilt, loneliness, power, weakness, pain, and denial. At turns poignant, disturbing, surreal and darkly satirical, "Birth of a Pillow" explores this territory with powerful, vulnerable performances and strong visual imagery.

The film score for "Birth of a Pillow" was created by Santa Fe, New Mexico musicians Mustafa Stefan Dill ( guitars, sarod) and Jefferson Voorhees ( percussion), with special guest Jeremy Bleich ( bass, percussion). The film contains stong sexual themes and some nudity.

Director: Sharmy PandeyProducer: Subhankar Dascinematographer- Santanu Deyeditor- Abhiroop Mazumder and Susanta ChakrabortyPrincipal cast: Somenath, Arunabh, Soma, Dev, Deborpita, Sourab, Subhankar, and Piyali.
