When you are in love….love that shakes you up from inside out, when every inch of your being is affected by the light of love…you do feel like screaming out to world about how madly you love this person…- don’t you? it cant be contained, isn’t it? but for someone who is feeling all this with a same sex person, can’t ever do that atleast in India…think about it…! In all probability, the world they scream out to, will scream back saying you need a psychiatric counselling…!
Thanks to internet, we now have a plethora of web series to choose from, for our entertainment. Filmmakers and writers are looking at the internet to tell their stories in an innovative way and reach out to more young audience.
In these changing times, there is one filmmaker who is also addressing a change of a different kind. Bengaluru-based filmmaker Roopa Rao is ecstatic that her hard work is finally paying off! Roopa’s debut web series – The Other Love Story – is based on a lesbian relationship between two girls who are in love with each other and the story is set in the 90s in Bengaluru.
The web series is leading the nominations at the NYC Web Fest and has garnered a lot of acclaim from critics and its viewers. It is no suprise that Roopa is thrilled on receiving such response on a global level.
The Other Love Story will be competing with 95 other short films shortlisted from different parts of the world. The NYC Web Fest will take place in Manhattan between November 10 and November 12.
