Anjanabha Roy

1992, January 16. Anjanabha Roy was born at Malda, a small home town in West Bangal, India. After completing his graduations from Gour College Malda, he completed his master degree from Visva-Bharati university established by Rabindranath Tagore. He did his first short film when he was pursuing his academic degree. The Separation was his first film based on the history of partition on 1947. Then he made The Freedom (based on Red Oleanders, a play by Rabindranath Tagore) , Fetish (On human fetish and disorder), The Girlhood (on exploitation of a woman in India) and Before The Dawn…Night (on Naxal Movement of Kolkata). He is the film maker from India who does not believe in visual story telling but believe in deconstruction of visual narratives. His art is much more complex and much concentrates on human psychology rather than events of life.
