The story explores these culturally diverse and unique individuals, who remain in love after being separated for almost twenty-five years.

Here the Forbidden City Havana combines the beauty of the coastal Caribbean city with the continuing controversial relationship between Cuba and United States.
The entire book manuscript has a total of three parts and brings to light Olga and William’s espionage past starting (as in this TV Pilot) with Part I - Olga’s Promise of 2014 in the seductive dance world of New York City involving many of the espionage story participants.
A significant goal in part one (and the pilot) is to preserve Olga’s dramatic but slightly humorous narrative tone to the strange and evolving CTFU-Cuba Mission to recover two priceless World Heritage UNESCO designated artifact.

“When the heart is hard and parched up, come upon me with a shower of mercy.
When grace is lost from life, come with a burst of song.
Come to me, my lord of silence, with thy peace and rest.” (R. Tagore)
This is Kolkata: it vibrates on Tagore's verses, it walks Gandhi's steps, it breathes the love of Mother Teresa. It’s right here where Bharati, Rahima and Sumita were born: under a bridge, along the train station, in the red light zone. Their stories intertwine in the home of the Sisters of Providence, where dreams come true. Rahima became a flight stewardess. Sumita left her abusive husband. Unfortunately Bharati left us before the editing of the film was finished, leaving behind a son.

"my dear quarantine"

"My dear quarantine" is a short, simple story from the time of pandemic–a poetic view of isolation, loneliness and boredom.

The inspiration for the film came during the complete lockdown, when many of us suffered from being closed up in concrete cubes. At the same time, however, something extraordinary happened: wild animals all over the world, intrigued by the sudden silence and peace, visited city centers. Animals walked the city streets, looked into the houses through windows and fences, got to know the charms of the playgrounds and–apparently–had a lot of fun. Their curiosity and innocence contrasted with our loneliness and fears, my dear quarantine portrays that special, poetic moment.

This project is the animation debut of puppeteer and theatre director Ewa Maria Wolska, who, as all theatre people around the globe, couldn’t work in live theatre, or meet with audiences during the last year. This film was made in her own apartment, which was converted into a home animation studio.

"MORE"

Logline- "A True happiness is not a destination but it is a journey."
As a human being we always want more and more new things in our life . We think they will give us more happiness. So we keep running behind the new things leaving the one which we have in our hand and at last we realise that it is not the things that give us happiness but the moment we cherish.
But by the time we realise this, our life is at its end. More things will keep evolving in life. They will never stop, but our own life will definitely stop. So enjoy your “now moment” rather than running behind “more”.
