ShortFilmSaturday: Public Relations: An International Short Film

The other day my fellow blogger and friend Sherryn Daniel has brought this hidden movie gem to my attention. It is directed by Manan (Singh) Katohora, a screenwriter and director who currently lives in the D.C area. He is known for Arya (2003), 9 Eleven (2011) and When Kiran Met Karen (2008).

Long Story Short:
A bigoted man who doesn’t hide his negative feelings towards gays and lesbians has to learn the hard way that hatred and ignorance doesn’t get one anywhere.

My Thoughts:
With a length of only six minutes Public Relation is probably one the shortest short films I have ever seen, but at the same time it says more than some movies that are 90 minutes or longer.
My grandma always used to say: “If you see someone laying on the street begging for water or food try your best to help them because one day you might find yourself on the other end and wished someone would help you.”
Her words immediately came to my mind after watching this very successful short.
The fact that it is a tiny bit cheesy doesn’t bother me at all, because it definitely brings an important message across: People – especially the ones in the public eye – should be open and accepting towards everyone, no matter what they wear, what (or who) they like, how they look, or who they are.

Check out Publich Relations: An International Short Film directed by Manan Katohora and spread the word about it, because Mr. Katohora might be known by many but not enough.

Also, don’t forget to check out Sherryn’s blog http://sherryndaniel.wordpress.com/

That’s all for today, folks. Have a wonderful weekend.
