About Us

Insight is a group of creative artists, with base at Palakkad, in Kerala, India, who believe in the great potential of the medium of communication and aesthetic creativity that the very short film offers. It is actually a regrouping of the founding members of the earlier, now defunct, ‘Hraswachithra’ (meaning ‘Short Film) Film Society of Palakkad, the pioneering short film and parallel cinema movement in Kerala, which made several short films in the 8 mm and video formats in the 1980s, when such attempts were rare in this part of the world.

In 1979, the leading members had gone to get training in short film making from SOSFIMAK (Society of Short Film Makers) of Bangalore. Whole villages were mobilized for participating in the films made by Hraswachithra. Though very little opportunity was then available to show their films to a wider audience, the films were widely shown among the people of the area where they were shot and everyone got a chance to see the working of a film right up to its screening and many got a chance to appear in the films.
