Goes beyond the slaughter house as one can really make parallels with the kind of lives we live in today's day and age... THe review by the magazine Eyeweekly is really appropriate for this film, though I do not agree with the WIRED magazine so much as it does not seem to be a film about vegetarianism since Rahim is so happy about dying and living, unless there is a hidden piece of sarcasm/ irony in the film that I am notbeing able to catch... But an excellent piece of story telling which without using humans has moved me a lot! The making of the film as stated in Rediff is also a very moving piece as the journey of the filmmakers can be seen!! Honest!


hi maartand

kind words. thank you. yes, the wired review didnt quite get it. but it was generous of them anyways. though to be fair the film is open to interpretation. rajat and i keep debating what it really means, still. :)

fantastic!!!..you set an example to all about how to make a 1 min min short..wow!

One of the wonderful short film I ever came across...Excellent narration..Very fast editing.
