Fresh suicide

Fresh suicide - Short Film by Anupam Barve Receives as critical acclaim
Anupam Barve is an avid film buff from Pune, India. After a brief detour to science college, he opted to complete a graduation in Performing Arts. Before moving to London t pursue a career in film direction, he spent a few years doing drama, making documentaries and running an environmental organisation called TekdiPune.
Quote:
"Fresh Suicide is semi-autobiographical. As a final project film on the MA in Film Direction course at the University of Westminster, I wanted to make a film which was mine, which came out of my own identity and awareness. I have been in this situation as Anurag in the film. It is very personal. We all know how insensitive media is about such issues, but what is more disturbing is the way western media looks at these matters. It is also very disturbing to see how we still look up to the white skin. It is also about the young urban India getting sandwiched between Western Culture and one's own roots. Especially when he/she finds he is detached from both."
Synopsis
Fresh Suicide is a realistic portrayal of a young Indian translator working with an American journalist, who is doing a photo feature on farmers' suicides in rural India. In the process of looking out for a recent suicide case, he is sandwiched between his duty and sensitivity, aggressive Western journalism and the disturbing colonial hangover that still looms over most of rural India.

Photography was his conversation

<p> One of India's leading fashion photographers, Gautam Rajadhyaksha passed away at 4:00 am this morning, due to a heart attack. He was 61 years old. Born in Mumbai, Gautam schooled from St. Xavier's High School, Fort, and did his graduation in Chemistry at the St. Xavier's College, Mumbai, where he later also taught for two years. He was the cousin of noted novelist Shobha De. Having completed his in diploma in advertising and public relations, he joined the photo services department of Lintas India Ltd, a leading advertising agency in 1974, eventually becoming the head of the department. During his 15 year stint, he participated in the creation of milestone ad campaigns, while continuing his childhood passion of photography over the weekends.<br /> His accidental brush with glamour shooting was thanks to his friends Shabana and Javed who got him his first break in the film industry from a film monthly asking him to shoot her. The rest, as they say, is history. Interestingly, he worked for Lintas for fifteen years as the copy-head before he decided to take a headlong plunge into full time photography - a passion that he had nurtured since he was a child.<br /> Apart from doing occasional television talk shows, he also edited Marathi entertainment fortnightly, 'Chanderi' and wrote a popular column, Manas Chitra, in leading Marathi news daily. In1997 he released a coffee table book, titled, 'FACES', containing 45 film personalities beginning with Durga Khote, one of India's first ladies of the Indian screen and ending with Aishwarya Rai. From Amitabh Bachchan to Bobby Deol, Durga Khote to Kajol, Mehr Jessia to Lisa Ray - he had captured the essence of these beautiful people through his lens. As an ace lensman, he went beyond the physical attributes of a person to his mental faculties - and brought out the real persona of these celebrities, an art known only to Gautam. An extraordinary artiste himself, he ensured that his portraits capture the glamour, rarely straying towards the glitz.<br /> A powerhouse of talent, Gautam was also a renowned scriptwriter and music freak too. In 1992, he wrote his first screenplay, for the film, 'Bekhudi', which launched actress Kajol's career and his second, 'Anjaam' presented, Madhuri Dixit with a challenging role. In 2000, he held his first ever photo-exhibition in Pune showcasing, his twenty years as a photography work. His exhibitions was held in Pune, Goa and Kolhapur and attracted huge crowds and his exhibitions in San Francisco, London, Birmingham and Dubai, was well appreciated by the crowds and critics both.<br /> Gautam Rajadhyaksha, an artist who devoted his life to the field of photography was also considered the pioneer of ‘soft focus’ photos that have long created an aura around the celebrities he captured. It is no wonder then that even in today’s slam-bang world of digital shoots Gautam’s photos and unique style are still much sought after and will be forever. Gautam Rajadhyaksha was a people’s person and for him, communication with his ‘subjects’ held the key to bringing out their character on film. For him making his subjects comfortable was half the battle won.<br /> He was the man who had given a new lease of life to a thousand beautiful faces. Gautam Rajadhyaksha, the ace glamour photographer, whose work has spanned more than two decades will always be known as indeed brilliant and incomparable.</p>
