‘Binnu Ka Sapna’ is written and directed by Kanu Behl, His new short film is a gritty portrayal of society. Kanu Behl gained fame by his debut feature film ‘Titli’ which premiered at the 2014 Cannes’ Un Certain Regard. ‘Binnu Ka Sapna’ is to make its world premiere at the prestigious Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival 2019.

It is the only Indian short film competing at the festival. The festival will be held from February 1-9, 2019. It is known as the world’s largest film festival dedicated to short films and the second largest film festival in France after Cannes.

‘Binnu Ka Sapna’ is produced by Terribly Tiny Talkies and Colosceum Media. The 32 minutes narrative is about the young Binnu as he recalls childhood memories of an angry father and a loving, smiling mother, forced to surrender her education or any hope of earning, to be a full-time homemaker. It marks as the debut of Chetan Sharma as the protagonist Bindu.

Sharing his joy, Kanu Behl says, “Binnu Ka Sapna is the nightmare none of us wish unfolds. And yet it does. Routinely around us. This was an opportunity for me to tell a pertinent story that reflects our realities, and the multiple masks we don to look away from it.

He adds, “I am happy that the film is about to reach its audience and that it connects as a personal yet universal document.”

Anuj Gosalia, CEO, Terribly Tiny Tales says, “Kanu is a brave and persevering voice. His stories are both, relevant and uncomfortable. After watching Binnu Ka Sapna come to life, and the ways it can move people who watch it, it makes us want to tell the many stories that quietly stay untold in India, and the world. This feeling is both scary and exciting.”

Lalit Sharma, CEO, Colosceum Media says, “There are stories and then there are stories that only Kanu can tell. ‘Binnu Ka Sapna’, talks to you at a subconscious level and shows you how belief in the perceived thoughts shapes you and your reality without you realizing it. The story is Indian but what it deals with is a phenomenon with us humans as a species no matter where we are on the Globe. Open your eyes to this dream.”
