Rumi Kaul Wins the New Generation Award at Berlin Commercial
We’re extremely proud to share that our Rising Director Rumi Kaul just won the New Generation Award at Berlin Commercial for his short film Kooi!
Kooi (Cage) tells the story of Omar, a teenage boy who spends his days in a football cage with his neighbourhood friends and the conflict that ensues when his younger brother tries to join them. Drawing inspiration from childhood games, this film is a nostalgic look at the factors that influence young boys’ emotional development. The film is centred around the themes of youth and masculinity and explores the question of what it means to be a man in today’s society and the social conditioning behind toxic masculinity.
Congratulations, Rumi! We can’t wait to see what you’ll do next!
