Colors Saffron

Colors Saffron


‘Colors’ is a trilogy of short films created by AK Srikanth (the Writer and Director), and performed by Savitha Sastry. ‘Colors’ refers to the three colours of our national flag, and the trilogy is a series that juxtaposes the life of a woman today, with the visions that our founding fathers had when India got its independence. The first part ‘Green’ released in September 2020, and ‘White’ in April 2021.

The colour Saffron in the Indian National Flag represents strength and courage. In this production Savitha and Srikanth present a story of strength and courage of a woman in extreme adversity. ‘Colors: Saffron’ is set in a dystopian, undated period in history where women who go against the norms of society are placed in a camp called ‘The Cell’, with their memories wiped clean. This is the story of one woman in the cell who starts getting visions of her past, and soon completely realizes the enormity of the crime committed by society against her so called ‘transgression’.

If ‘Green’ was presented with a sense of realism, ‘White’ conveyed like visual poetry, then ‘Saffron’ has been made to hit the viewer with an unprecedented intensity and ferocity.
