Short films show



IN THE FRAME Stills from `Birju'

Films Anonymous will be screening four short films including one Oscar winner and another, an Oscar nominee.

The collection also features a Bollywood style musical made by Czech filmmaker Ivan Zacharias besides Anurag Kashyap's short film titled Last Train to Mahakali.

Mulit, Zacharias' musical is a tale of forbidden love, betrayal and jealousy. Originally commissioned as part of a series of short films, the film comes with a good dose of comedy.

The Oscar winning work, Countdown from Germany, is a silent film of a man "counting" his last minutes before suicide. This film, directed by Marcel-Kyrill Gardelli, runs for nine minutes.
