Shimla, April 10

Short-art film 'Mobile School' reflecting struggles in life during the Covid-19 lockdown with focus on online education in Himachal has been released on YouTube. Raveesh Mrigendra, a Palampur resident, has written, produced, and directed the movie.

Mrigendra claimed it to be Himachal Pradesh's first film on education during the lockdown. He said, "I have been observing in detail the sufferings and challenges of the people in the state since the beginning of the lockdown and wanted to highlight the fact that constant efforts yield results. We can overcome disease or unforeseen events with perseverance and responsible behaviour”.

The film revolves around the phase of uncertainty, stress, hope, determination with focus on the problems faced by students and teachers, especially in remote and rural areas, in the changed education scenario.

"The five minute, 47 seconds film was shot with a borrowed SLR camera and with the help of a friend, Vikas Rana, who edited it, while my cousin Suraj Sharma worked as editor and assistant director," he said.

Born in Shimla, Mrigendra now lives in Palampur. All actors of the film have no prior acting experience and it was really tough to shoot it during the lockdown but the team gave its best even with meager resources, he added.
