KIRPA - SHORT FILM TRAILER
If the trailer for this film can give me chills then I can’t imagine what the full thing will be like…
Stunningly directed by Kay Ray, with a whole team of creative BROWNGIRLS, ‘Kirpa’ addresses a situation that we can pretty much all relate to.
"…a short film about a 23-year-old art student struggling to fulfill the wishes of her parents while pursuing her dreams of becoming an artist. A lack of communication between her and her father makes home life difficult. They both love and want the best for each other, but don’t know how to communicate this without creating further misunderstandings. A healthy relationship is all Kirpa wishes to have with her father, and that is everything he dreamed of since immigrating to Canada and driving a taxi to support the family. But where did it all go wrong? How can she repair one of the most relationships a young woman has in her life?”
Sound familiar? I know. And it’s so beautifully explored.
Collaborations like this are so important and pack so much power. The haunting, honey-dew vocals of Keerat Kaur really hit the heart too.
My question is, when and where can we see the whole film if we don’t live in Canada!?
Aww this is so sweet

This heartbreaking story is about as elephant Raju from India that had an incredibly rough life. After being poached from his mother he was thrown from one owner to another, until he was left living in terrible conditions with no shelter at night, being used as a beggars prop all day long. Raju survived only from passing tourists and sometimes had to eat plastic and paper while being chained 24 hours a day. A wildlife organisation SOS-UK could not stand the injustice and decided to save him in a daring midnight rescue operation.
The elephant, realizing he was being saved, started to cry: “It was incredibly emotional. We knew in our hearts he realised he was being freed” – claims Pooja Binepal, one of the rescuers in an interview with Presspeople. “Tears began to roll down Raju’s face. Some no doubt were due to the pain but he also seemed to sense that change was coming. He felt hope for the first time” – says another rescuer Kartick.
So I was talking to my friend about colouring books and she showed me this one.
