Directed by Shailik Bhaumik

‘Dasein’ is a postmodern, meta-narrative avant-garde feature film. It tells the story of a young painter Aniket Chatterjee, who commits suicide by taking sleeping pills. When he slowly approaches towards death, standing at the boundary of life and death, what comes to his mind, what he realises, this film is all about that. It is a voyage from one’s consciousness to sub consciousness and at times the boundary becomes blurring.

The film deals with issues such as person hood, mortality and the paradox of living in relationship with other humans while being ultimately alone with one self. The story revels that morality does not inherently exist, and that any established moral values are abstractly contrived. It explores the roots of eternal human desire and despair. The crisis of existence and human values in today’s material world has been portrayed in the film.
Finally it is all about one’s search for his inner self, the absolute truth and his salvation.

Inspired by the love poem ”A Birthday,” by Christina Rossetti, the film takes place close to the Birthday of Ron, a nineteen-years-old girl who is deeply in love with May, her best friend. A short time after Ron moves from Taipei, May decides to join her in Berlin. The love between them is strong but contrasting: Ron doesn’t openly tell May her feelings but May is conscious of what she represents to her friend. Nevertheless, she keeps enjoying her life, taking all she can from Ron until she takes too much. Her choices lead both girls to face who they are and how they might live life to the fullest.
