故事梗概 Synopsis

在预映会上,年轻的导演期待着他的科幻电影新作能够通过印度审查委员会保守派人士的“无删减”认证。

委员会在电影中看到了一个特别的接吻镜头,其时间超过了官方规定的荧幕接吻时长。在导演和委员会成员就这个接吻的时长争论不休时,物理定律开始瓦解。

At a preview theatre, a young filmmaker waits in the hope of getting his new sci-fi drama certified with “no cuts” by the conservative men of the Indian Censor Board. 

The board finds a particular kissing scene in the film beyond the duration stipulated by official, orthodox rules. As the filmmaker and board members argue over the length of the kiss, the laws of physics disintegrate around them.

导演阐述 Director Statement

羞耻和骄傲,这两种独属于人类的情绪,对现代文明的塑造起到了重要作用。世界各地右翼权威的崛起使它们成为过去十年里每一次游行的亮点。通过这部影片,我想在一个不太常见的背景设定和电影类型中探寻这些情绪的起源。科幻和心理剧的结合恰好能够用来讲述这个荒诞的,关于欲望、羞耻和一厢情愿的愿景的故事。

Shame and pride, two uniquely human inventions, have been instrumental in shaping modern civilizations. The rise of right wing authority across the world has made these emotions the showstoppers of every parade last decade. With Kiss I wanted to explore the origin of these concepts in an unusual setting and genre. Sci-fi and psychological drama gave me just the right tools to tell this bizarre tale of desire, shame, and wishful fantasy.
