Former students of South Point High School from across the globe came together on an online platform during the lockdown to shoot a seven-minute music video that paid tribute to nature and its various facets.
Among these former students are Suranjan Das, vice-chancellor of Jadavpur University, Kunal Basu, writer, Bedabrata Pain, scientist and filmmaker, Rajat Ganguly, actor, Aniruddha Roy Choudhury, filmmaker, Tanmoy Bose, musician, Arnab Gupta, surgical oncologist, Chandrabali Rudra Datta, singer, Amitava Chanda, neurosurgeon, Papia Adhikari, actor, Bhaswar Chatterjee, actor, Pratim D Gupta, filmmaker, Urmila Bhowmik, dancer, Abhijit Dasgupta, filmmaker and several others.
Shot with hand-held devices, “Bhebhe Dekhecho Ki?” acknowledges the blessings of nature and asks for “her mercy” to overcome the pandemic. The concept for the video came from Sutapa Chaterjee while Santanu Mukherjee wrote the script and Utsav Dan edited and directed it.
“This is a spontaneous effort by about 35 former students of South Point High School, who are living in different parts of the globe. They have come forward with a common intention to express their feelings and creativity for humanity in time of the present crisis. From conception to execution, it took us about 15 days, during which everyone recorded their respective portions on mobiles and tablets. The entire video was compiled, edited and finished in-house,” said Krishna Damani, president, South Point Ex-students’ Association.
