Acting Like a Thief is a short film about the Budhan Theatre of Chharanagar. Starting with playwright Dakxin Bajrange discussing his arrest , the film brings us inside the lives of a dedicated group of young actors and their families as they discuss what it means to be a “born criminal” and how theater changed their lives.
More to Come!
Although we are releasing it as a self-contained movie, Acting Like a Thief is a preview of a larger project: Hooch and Hamlet in Chharanagar. We are raising funds to go back to India and film more so that we can get this story out to a wider audience.
