The Descent

By AK Srikanth with 6.7

music video · Short Films

The story is of a dancer whose fame and glory is now a matter of yesteryears. As she attempts to come to terms with the success of her successor, she struggles to reconcile her present with her past.

The protagonist uses Bharatnatyam to convey her angst, anger, sadness and pain to the viewer and provides a moving performance in the wilderness of a forest. The visuals are marked by aerial shots and smooth transitions in tune with the tune of the performance. The film also attempts a comment on the state of mental health in India.
