Documentary: The Sound of Old Rooms

The Sound of Old Rooms is a painstakingly made documentary, filmed over 20 years. The narrative of the documentary follows a man named Sarthak, down 20 years, as he struggles with the practicalities of raising a family and his desire of becoming a poet.

Director Sandeep Ray's subject had the time to go out for a drink or two when he was in college, even discuss his writings. Now, with a family and the demands of work, he struggles to realise his dream. The run-down home he lives in is populated with his mother, his wife and his son - it's too cramped to sit and ruminate over anything.
