Short Film Amen

Written, Produced & Directed by : Ranadeep Bhattacharyya & Judhajit Bagchi



The World Wide Web brings the two protagonists,Andy and Harry, together on a nonchalant afternoon. But this planned sex datetakes an unexpected twist and the interactions between Andy and Harry go beyondphysical pleasure bringing out questions that need to be answered, truths thatneed to be accepted and a life that stands to be reckoned.

“Amen” makes two characters meet, experience hopeamidst confusion, explore truths about sexuality and the self and delves intothe profound meaning of life in the continuum of its trifles.
