Director Amar Kaushik’s short film Aaba will be premiered at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival. The film will be screened in the Generation Kplus competition on February 11. The story of Aaba originated from Kaushik’s mother Shashi Kaushik and is about an orphan girl who comes across the news of her grandfather reaching the terminal stages of lung cancer. As the grandfather’s (Aaba) days are numbered, the family encounters unexpected events.

Filmmakers Raj Kumar Gupta and Onir and film enthusiast Mitul Dikshit have produced the short film along with Alison Welly. It has been shot in Arunachal Pradesh. Says the director, “This is truly a memorable moment for the Aaba team. I am thankful to my mentors Raj Kumar Gupta and Onir and my friend Mitul Dikhshit for showing their confidence in me, and the entire team for their support on this project. The beautiful Arunachal Pradesh made the entire film making process all the way more precious for us. Berlinale is an esteemed film event and having Aaba premiere at the event is an absolute honour. We are looking forward to attending the event and representing India on the platform.”
