Shillong, Dec 6 (ANI): Dominic Megam Sangma from Meghalaya, has become one of the few documentary filmmakers from the northeast whose documentaries has been selected for international film festivals like the Munich International Film Festival, the International Students Film and Theatre Festival and the International Film Festival of India.
The 25 year old filmmaker, who hails from the Tura Hills of Meghalaya is also the first person to put a Garo film on celluloid.
The ten-minute documentary film named, 'Karyukai', showcases how people conceal their deepest pains with smiles on their faces.
Dominic is currently in the final year of direction and screenplay writing at Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute in Kolkata.
Dominic today serves as a great source of inspiration to the youth of the northeast.
"I want to go back to Northeast and I want to make a film, which is very close to my heart. I think most of the northeast stories, folktale, myths are all in oral form, so people are not much aware of that but if I make those stories into film then surely people will watch it and also they will preserve it our culture," said Dominic.
Dominic believes that the youth of the Northeast have the potential, and if an opportunity is provided to showcase their talent, they can prove that they are second to none.
"There are lots of talented people in Northeast in different fields like musician, sportsperson, artists but we do not have a right platform. So I think its important to have a platform for them," said Dominic.
Dominic has also directed several other films like, Rahals's little Theatre, All My Only Dreams, Trouble Melody, Virtual Dream and Murder Delicacy to name a few. By Themthingchon (ANI)
