Open....The Film

Open is a short film about seeing beyond the surface, opening and extending one's heart in times of need, and of communication, especially on a spiritual level. As co-writer and director Satish More (aka Sri-Kishore Das) of Athens, Ohio puts it: "

"I can’t close my eyes to the truth; neither can I turn my back.

Another thing that I have always held close to my heart: “The Art-form is just the carrier of the consciousness of the artist to the audience. It doesn’t mean anything in and of itself.” Have a machine draw a picture and let’s see how many people “feel” it.

I want to form a crew that can feel and understand my urge and can be conscious of it during the making of this film. Only then will it deliver that consciousness to the audience.

I want to learn the skill of pulling off an efficient project which is carefully planned and artistically decorated by people of the right mindset.

I repeat mindset, consciousness, because it is important. At least it is to me."

Knowing Sri-Kishore personally, I aspire to simply follow in the footsteps of his sincere ambition, holding a boom-mic here, setting up some lights for him there, and maybe one day doing a film together. He's a rare soul in this world. Driven by his heart of gold.
