Fresh suicide

Fresh suicide - Short Film by Anupam Barve Receives as critical acclaim
Anupam Barve is an avid film buff from Pune, India. After a brief detour to science college, he opted to complete a graduation in Performing Arts. Before moving to London t pursue a career in film direction, he spent a few years doing drama, making documentaries and running an environmental organisation called TekdiPune.
Quote:
"Fresh Suicide is semi-autobiographical. As a final project film on the MA in Film Direction course at the University of Westminster, I wanted to make a film which was mine, which came out of my own identity and awareness. I have been in this situation as Anurag in the film. It is very personal. We all know how insensitive media is about such issues, but what is more disturbing is the way western media looks at these matters. It is also very disturbing to see how we still look up to the white skin. It is also about the young urban India getting sandwiched between Western Culture and one's own roots. Especially when he/she finds he is detached from both."
Synopsis
Fresh Suicide is a realistic portrayal of a young Indian translator working with an American journalist, who is doing a photo feature on farmers' suicides in rural India. In the process of looking out for a recent suicide case, he is sandwiched between his duty and sensitivity, aggressive Western journalism and the disturbing colonial hangover that still looms over most of rural India.
