|Filmmaker/s Bio Note/s||Ankur is a writer and independent documentary filmmaker based in Calcutta. He has worked on assignments for several NGOs, international humanitarian organisations, as well as corporate houses. Ankur’s earlier television experience included work in various key production capacities in Delhi, Calcutta, Dhaka and London. His one hour documentary Road to Tibet was invited to the Human Rights Films Festival, Vienna, 2008, and the Himalayan Film Festival, Amsterdam, and is now represented by Journeyman Films internationally.|
Park Corner, the Park Circus corner shop in central Calcutta, has seen myriad changes within and outside the mixed, urban community it serves. The shop and its customers are a slice of independent India as the nation lurches through a free economy to a consumerist era whose lifestyle is defined by glitzy shopping malls. The Film looks into the inner life of this ‘general store’ and its organic connection with the locality, its people, their hopes, fears, ambitions and idiosyncracies.
