Have a look at Sai Selvarajan’s latest ‘Sugarless Tea’, a film that might make you nostalgic like the good old ‘Malgudi Days’.
In 2005, while visiting India, Sai met a postal clerk in Ahmednagar, a small district in Maharashtra. Years later he decided to collaborate with his wife Amanda Selvarajan to turn his conversation into a small stop motion film.
The film is narrated by political comic Hari Kondabolu, an American-Indian stand up comic, who is known for his socially and politically charged comedy.
‘Sugarless Tea’ is a short tale about a common man in a small town in India who was separated from his twin brother. The film reads like a travelogue narrated as a poem. The filmmakers combine stop-motion technique with the process of painting with watercolours to bring forward a touching story about human connections, love, and loss.
