Interview With A Politician

  • slideshow_large

Niranjan Kamatkar / Santhosh Chandran

Synopsis

Peter Kandinsky, a freelance journalist and documentary film maker has decided to invest his own resources in a project - an interview with an openly gay politician and an ex-MP, Jeremy (Gerry) Robertson, to examine his personal life and views.

The viewers are led on a narrative journey - sometimes misleading sometimes mischievous - by ever evolving characters. Although the storyline is entirely fictional, the film is reflective of the youtube and myspace generation, where almost anyone can have access to publishing their own (including partial or deliberately misleading commentary) video films and online web contents.

Interview with a Politician is a fictional and yet racy, seemingly topical exploration of the ups and downs in mainstream politician’s life, as if through a stage-managed docu-drama.
