SOBABILI

The story is based on a true life incident, the final lesson. In real life it was boyfriend and girlfriend situation. The boyfriend was cheating and he subsequently he got caught in a love triangle. Love triangle come out and girlfriend came with a knife and attempts to stop the situation, he end-up getting stepped and subsequently losing his life. So we took that… into a brother and sister situation. So we always started with the ending moment and then we worked with it backwards. So it was like ok cool, how we have this, how do we get it there. That why it starts from the end, because literally that’s how we got the story.

A MOVIE THAT SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN MADE

A combination of systems and determination. We had no money, only a willing team. The movie was shot in 7 days.

WE MADE A MOVIE THEN HOPED AND PRAYED

But the good thing that happened is that the movie competed for an Oscar. It’s unheard of for a first time director to have a film that competed on the biggest stage, ever. So more than anything its created belief in what we do. So a single and commitment to a single idea shows that anything is possible. Which is like the forefront of our company ethos, which says that DREAMS DO COME TRUE, you have to have a healthy belief in the impossible.
