There are so many wonderful short films made in India, with writers at work in their own regions, and bold new voices experimenting with form and technique. Short Film Corner hopes to connect moviegoers with these films and also open dialogue with filmmakers, who in turn will have the chance to connect with their audience. White Wall Screenings (WWS) was founded in 2017 as a community to facilitate a conversation between short filmmakers and film connoisseurs. WWS has successfully presented more than 300 short films and also continues to organize workshops, masterclasses and conversations around cinema and films.

Samson Sequeira is a misfit, a principled man in a corrupt world. A mild-mannered Christian from Goa married into a rowdy Punjabi business family in Delhi. After two daughters and many years of loyalty to his wife, Samson’s father-in-law decides to entrust him with the family business. Moments after taking over, Samson is approached by a private detective armed with incriminating information. And that’s just the beginning of his troubles. What was supposed to be the happiest phase of his life turns into a hilarious nightmare of dishonesty and double-crossing, and a trial by fire of Samson’s integrity. Whoever said blood is thicker than water hasn’t met that family yet.
