Naked

By Rakesh Kumar with 7.4

drama · Short Films

The short film engages with a concern particularly specific to women in contemporary times - online abuse. Consequently, the film becomes an important comment on gender, drawing the viewer's attention to male entitlement, sexual violence, women's location in society and the freedom of choice, which is allowed to men, while denied to women.

The narrative employs tight, top angles which enables the viewer to be part of the characters' rage and unease, respectively. The conversation between the two women is conceptualised and written in a mature manner, thereby succeeding in raising pertinent questions about our patriarchal society, women's accessibility to public spaces and cyber trolling.
