Synopsis

Made entirely in Qatar, ‘Shringar’ is a short narrative that delicately uses a young girl’s nightmare as an allegory for the real-life horror of child labour in the Indian mica industry—a mineral used in creating some cosmetic products. The shocking stories behind the makeup industry are beautifully communicated by various art forms such as Indian semi-classical music, shadow play and the Indian dance form called ‘Kadhak’.
