We are so excited to do the Trailer Launch of a very unique film Siberia - Written, Produced and Directed by Faraz Arif Ansari and starring the ever so talented Aahana Kumra.
When Sputnik II was sent into space with a dog, named Laika on board, it was a major leap for science. Laika’s unfortunate death in space was lauded as a worthy sacrifice for the sake of the betterment of humankind’s forays into space. But that’s the human point of view. Imagine yourself as Laika – unable to understand where you’re going, what you’re doing and not even knowing if there is a way back or will you only be left circling the orbit; around the earth and the world you know but just not in it. Imagine being isolated and alone and senselessly being controlled by forces that you don’t comprehend.
The story of Siberia draws from and is dedicated to the story of Laika, sent into space in the Sputnik II. The film follows its central character, Reena, trapped a seemingly familiar scenario of a woman who believes that as she sits in her house, alone, she is accompanied by the looming presence of a large rat.
Siberia is tryst between the conscious and subconscious - The constant want to create, to have created and then living the creation.
