Short Film Imagines How Far One Might Go to Survive

You are a daily wage worker who hasn’t worked a single day in last three months. You have no access to drinking water, let’s not even talk about food. You are in pain, hungry, thirsty, and there’s no hope; but you’re not just ready to give up yet. So how far would you really go to be able to survive this pandemic and remain alive?

That’s what the short film ‘Starving’ tries to explore. The film written, shot directed and edited by Nishan Bhujel; the 17-year-old filmmaker who just hit a milestone with his music video that accumulated 200 million views; is a one-character film starring Raj Gautam.

The 6-minute film is pretty dark and you might find the climax disturbing. So, watch at your own risk.

I know what you’re feeling right now. Damn!!
