Short film Ghuspaith - Beyond Borders to honour photojournalists

Actor Amit Sadh said his upcoming short film 'Ghuspaith - Beyond Borders' honours photojournalists across the world. The plot is set at the border between India and Bangladesh. A land taken over by militancy and an urgent refugee crisis are the main focus of the movie.

When writer-director Mihir K. Lath approached Amit with the story, he realised it is to honour journalists like Danish Siddique. Speaking about the late photographer, Amit said: "I knew about Danish from before, and I think it is very courageous and brave of all people who report war and crime. It takes a lot of guts to be in that kind of a scenario where bombs are blasting and bullets are being fired from all directions."

He added that it was a great opportunity and honour to explore and make this short film. "The way Mihir had done his prep and planned things, it looked like we were going to make something nice. I am very fulfilled and happy that I made Ghuspaith."

The movie was shot in Maharashtra over four days. The name of the movie translates to 'intrusion'.

Amit further said Ghuspaith is a brave attempt to understand the pain and horror that must have filled the last moments of Danish Siddique. "I think it takes immense courage to bear witness and Ghuspaith is an effort for all of us to understand the strength it takes to cross borders in pursuit of humanity. That is our intention with the film."

The director wanted to focus on the complicated and global issue of the refugee crisis. He said: "Amit and I were aligned from our very first meeting when I explained my vision to him - the kind of themes my movie was dealing with and the way I wanted to invigorate the viewer into this high-tension human drama. Even before reading the script, he said yes to me. It is that decision of his that has allowed 'Ghuspaith' to be made."

The movie will be screened at Sundance Film Festival.
