“Every man is surrounded by a neighbourhood of voluntary spies.” – George Washington

Spying has always claimed the highest position in the hierarchy of human behaviour. And thus it forms the crux of the film “Nino Live”. Based in the modern age, the film shows how an entire life can go public in this era of wires and networks. The film revolves around the journey of a child from adolescence to early manhood, all caught on
celluloid. Ripping off his personal domain, his existence is dished out in the form of unedited footage, broadcasted live 24/7 on television. This gigantic show, named “Nino Live”, becomes a way of life for thousands of reality TV struck fans around the country.

The nightmares and realities of a depressed person who is in exile, Shadows of Silence is about the life in exile of a family man with three small children and wife. The film is a deeply felt look at the personal torment of an exile and the permanent presence of pain and alienation in the depths of his heart. It shows how his bleak dreams and illusions echo instead the profound isolation of a shattered mind, driving him to contemplate ending his life.
