Music inspiration to make films: Director Spandan Banerjee

Panaji, Nov 30 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS) Music acted as an inspiration for director Spandan Banerjee to make films.

“Music is an integral part of my cinema and has been the inspiration for me to make films,” said Banerjee, director of ‘You Don’t Belong’.

Addressing a press conference at the Media Centre at IFFI here on Wednesday, he said that ‘You Don’t Belong’ is a story of migration told through folk music. The movie is in black and white and is rich with Bengal folk music said the Director.

Rupalina Bose, the script writer of the film said they are now working on a full length feature film titled ‘The Golden Triangle’.

In the film, ‘You Don’t Belong’, myth and memory, home and migration are the larger narratives emerging from the journey of a song into the urban mainstream.

The film asks important questions about the encounter between art and mass production, creation and ownership in a country rich with myriad fold and oral traditions. The movie received the Special Jury Mention at IDSFFK 2011, Kerala.

Director Spandan Banerjee quit his job in advertising and started his independent outfit, Overdose Films in Delhi.

His earlier films ‘Beware Dogs’ premiered in the International Film Festival of Rotterdam and ‘The Fiction’ at the OSIAN’s Film Festival.
