Zoom Q&A with Film-maker Bhaskar Hazarika

Aamis is an Assamese love/horror story that centers desire, food and the social taboos.

A lonely, married woman bonds with a younger man over their shared love of unusual foods. As their excursions become more adventurous, their relationship begins to take a dark turn.

SYNOPSIS

Married Niri shares a forbidden passion with Sumon, who introduces her to a world of fresh, wild delicacies. But as their unconsummated desire mounts, the two are pushed inexorably towards transgression and taboo.

DIRECTOR'S PROFILE 
Bhaskar Hazarika

Bhaskar Hazarika received his MA in Film & Drama from the University of Reading (UK).

Bhaskar’s debut film KOTHANODI (2015) was a recipient of Asian Cinema Fund’s Post Production and premiered at Busan International Film Festival 2015. Kothanodi also screened at BFI London Film Festival, Goteborg Film Festival and Jio MAMI Film Festival among

"National-award winning director Bhaskar Hazarika says his brief stint in Bollywood left him with the memorable lesson that there is no respect for writers in the biggest film industry of the country.

This, the director explained, was at a time when he was trying hard to make his work count in Bollywood, which remained largely unmoved by original, daring ideas.

The director said he got the idea for Aamis while watching two people eat KFC chicken."
