Published

on

 

It is a proud moment for the entire ‘Oxygen’ team as the film has been selected for World Premiere in Caleidoscope Indian Film Festival of Boston, the USA from September 5 to 8, 2019.
Caleidoscope Indian Film Festival is organized by Indian Arts Boston Inc, a non-profit Massachusetts organization and is the largest Indian Film Festival of USA. It provides a unique platform for upcoming art-house and differentiated films from the Indian sub-continent to be discovered and appreciated by a mainstream global audience. Over the past five years, Caleidoscope has screened, even premiered several defining films of the Indian film industry including Chittagong, Teenkahon, Lipstick Under My Burkha, A Death in the Gunj, An Argumentative Indian and so on.
Directed by Shoib Nikash Shah, the film is a portrayal of the moral ambiguity of corruption among low paid government employees. The dilemma of low salaries and tempting deals offered to grossly underpaid and under-employed officials and the resultant struggle of honest officers with the established system forms the central plot of the film.
This would be the first-ever world premiere of the film Oxygen and the team is extremely happy since the Festival, which receives around 300 submissions every year from filmmakers around the world, has selected this film for the Competition round as well, apart from screening. Caleidoscope is one of the few festivals that provides monetary awards to filmmakers for its top competitive section.
On this occasion, we had a word with the female protagonist of the movie, Namita Lal of Lihaaf fame, who was absolutely delighted with the news. Sharing her excitement, she said, “I’m amazed to know that our film has been chosen not just for the screening but also have been invited to participate in the Competition round. Besides, for an international Film Festival to pick up a movie based on such a theme is also overwhelming.”


Showering light on the film’s theme, the director-cum-lead actor, Shoib Nikash Shah of Mantostaan fame said, “The film talks about environmental preservation and enlightens on ground level corruption which is the basic conflict around the globe and also about conservation of nature which is the ultimate need of the hour. Nevertheless, the film raises a lot of relevant questions throughout.” He expressed his gratitude towards the Festival organisers for selecting his film to premiere in a prestigious Film Festival.
The cinematography of the film, which has been shot in the beautiful and small region of Poonch and Surankot (J&K) has been done by Luxmi Chand Chauhan while the music has been contributed by Shubhdeep Singh. Produced by Rahat Kazmi Films, Nutzaboutme Pte Limited, Singapore and Shoib Nikash Shah, the shooting of the film completed in January but its release date is yet to be announced.
The film would be screened on September 7 at 2:30 pm in Rhode Island College and the entry ticket is free but available only on prior registration. For more details, please visit: www.indianfilmfestivalboston.com
