Chilkuri Sushil Rao’s “Captain’s Knock” documentary selected for two international film festivals

HYDERABAD, MAY 17, 2024:  A documentary film titled “Captain’s Knock” produced and directed by Hyderabad-based documentary filmmaker Chilkuri Sushil Rao has been selected for two international film festivals.

The documentary has been selected for the Red Fox International Film Festival, Tbilisi, Georgia to be held in June 2024.

It has also been officially selected for the Hollywood Best Indie Film Awards, an IMDb qualifying film festival. The announcement about the selection was made on May 17.

The documentary is about how six Indian seafarers abandoned on a ship for two years struggle to survive. They eventually emerge victorious showing grit and determination in their difficult situation.

Original footage from a ship abandoned on the sea forms the basis of the documentary where the captain of the ship talks about the hardship seafarers face when they are literally abandoned without even being supplied proper food and drinking water. Thanks to the intervention of the Govt of India, and the Seafarers Associations, the seafarers eventually are able to disembark the ship and go back to their families.
