Vinta Nanda's 'White Noise' hot on the festival circuit
By Manisha Deshpande
Producer-director Vinta Nanda has begun the scripting of her film, KALI, which she describes as a mainstream film for the Indian and international audiences. Meanwhile her production and directorial debut in films, WHITE NOISE, starring Rahul Bose and Koel Puri, is hot on the international festival circuit. The film will be premiered at the Karachi film festival to be held from December 4 to December 7, after which it has been invited to the River festival in Florence from December 8. "The film is definitely getting its due in the international market with it being invited to more festivals. But I am also looking at an encouraging response in the Indian market when the film releases in January this year", Nanda says. Portrayed against the backdrop of the television industry, WHITE NOISE, explores the relationship between the writer of a regressive soap opera and the editor of the show, who identifies with the writer's frustrations in a changing social set-up. The title of the film according to Nanda, is an allegory for the equilibrium that the editor, a former sound engineer, tries to achieve around him. "It is comparable to the theory in sound when sound elements with equal frequency come together", Nanda elaborates.
