Paperfrogs – Finding hope
As Rayhan lies in bed, a paper is flying on the table through the window, carrying words about his internal world. This is a young man whose emotions have been suppressed to such silence that even the drip of a nearby tap echoes like a waterfall. This is the opening shot of the short film, “Paperfrogs” which premiered on the first day of Dhaka Lit fest at the Abdul Karim Sahitya Bisharad auditorium.  The film is written, directed and produced by Nuhash Humayun. Addressing it as little piece of him, Nuhash shared his journey of the film with wit and humour. The story deals with plights of a young adult Rayhan who is suffering the consequences of his parents’ divorce and his father’s remarriage. To ignore questions from society he often mutes his surroundings. A random visit to his aunt’s home and encounter with Sarika brings a change in his mind. We’ll stop here to avoid spoilers. Play on colour and utilization of spaces make it hard to imagine that the entirety of the film was shot in the director’s living room. Going beyond typical ways of portraying breakdowns, grief, depression or isolation in black and white, “Paperfrogs” depicts the emotions of the two young kids Rayhan and Sarika with vibrant colours like yellow, red, blue and green using origami frogs. Denying depression as a focus of the film, he said the film “is optimistic and sweet.” “A large part of the film was about finding hope and making life thrilling,” he added.
