Susant Misra’s ‘Josef – Born in Grace’ has won the Silver Remi Award

Bhubaneswar:22/4/20: Odisha-born filmmaker Susant Misra’s ‘Josef – Born in Grace’ has won the Silver Remi Award.

The movie has been nominated by a jury for the Christian Feature Film category in the 53rd World Fest-Houston International Film and Video Festival.

Ashok Mohapatra, the producer of the film, congratulated the team under construction on social media.

 “Josef – Born in Grace” is an adaptation of a short story “Joseph” written by Umakanta Mahapatra and is set in the foothills of the Himalayas between 1960 and 1980 in India.

Father O’Hara (Victor Banerjee), a missionary doctor with the help of his caretaker Maularam (Sudarshan Juyal), raises an orphan baby Josef (Hitesh Bisht). While still a young boy, Josef is sent to Dehradun for his studies and vocational training. Josef (Subrat Dutta) returns back with a reputation as a great cook as well as his love for alcohol.

The film explores in its unfolding of time, the different paths that Father O’Hara, Josef, and Maularam take in their respective journeys for spiritual fulfillment through memories, duty, and search as well as their interaction with friends and acquaintances. Through static mise-en-scenes, the narrative of the film reflects the all-encompassing nature of time, pre-empting and repeating itself in allegorical hues.

‘Josef – Born in Grace” featuringVictor Bannerjee, Subrat Dutta, Sudarshan Juyal, Gautam Chatterjee, Anamika Goswami  & Deepica Elizabeth Lakra in the lead role.
