The Opaque





Synopsis

“ATHARYAM (The Opaque)” filmed entirely in Singapore, is a short film which portrays the typical “Opaque” mentality of our society where most people judge a book by its cover. The film centres on two girls, and their reactions when they happen to have a chance encounter with a transgender(trans sexual) inside a shopping mall in Kerala(Southern tip of India). The movie was named "The Opaque" as the creators feel that many amongst us have lost that transparency & they hold prejudicial attitudes toward others especially when they deal with an opposite gender.
