Few months ago, filmmaker Anindya Chatterjee was in the USA with his debut feature film “Open-Tee Bioscope”. He, along with his friend Saugata, was touring the country and screening the film a several venues where Bengalis flocked. For many Bengalis in their middle age, the nostalgic film recreates their teenage years spent in the lanes and bylanes of Kolkata. It chronicles a tumultuous year in the life of a teenage boy, a coming of age story that is familiar to many of us even if we didn’t grow up in Kolkata. I got a chance to catch up with Anindya when he was visiting Washington D.C. to screen his film. He was kind enough to spend few minutes talking about his film and about his future plan. I hope you enjoy.
