Paris, Feb 11 (IANS) “Binnu Ka Sapna”, an Indian short film directed by Kanu Behl, has won the Student Jury Prize for best short at the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival 2019.

Honoured by the international recognition, Behl said in a statement: “I’m thrilled with the honour. It was a pleasure to see Binnu connect with a larger audience and to experience their reactions and love for the film first hand. I now eagerly look forward to the film’s release where it truly belongs – in India.”

“Binnu Ka Sapna” is a 32-minute narrative short that plunges into a malignant psyche, exposing the ticking time bombs around us and the sparks that set them off. It goes through the harrowing transformation of a victim into an attacker, with society only serving as a catalyst. It marks the debut of Chetan Sharma as the titular Binnu.
