Amarbir Singh, a film and fashion photographer who has worked in prominent films like AANKHEN, GANGAJAL, GANGSTER and WOH LAMHE, won a Gold Trophy for his film, AGONY OF SOUL by the Indian Documentary Producers' Association (IDPA). The sensitive film touches the topic of female feticide.

Says Amarbir, 'This problem of female feticide is very rampant in Punjab. There was a need to make such kind of film. One of my friends wrote this film and I said why not. We have shot the film in and around Chandigarh.'



Talking about his journey Amarbir said, 'I was a film photographer for a lot of films. While working in these films and with filmmakers like Rajkumar Santoshi and Mahesh Bhatt, I was inspired to make a film on my own. I had also done a music video which got a very good response which boosted my confidence to make this film.'

Speaking about his IDPA achievement, Amarbir said, 'I didn't expect the award as it was my first project. It felt really great. I had made the film to know where I stood. So now I'm pretty gung-ho to make more films. We are already working on a few subjects.'

The IDPA also awarded noted filmmakers, Shama Habib Bullah and Vijaya Mulay for their documentaries.
