Khundongbam: A young filmmaker who wants the world to know about Manipur

By NewsGram Staff Writer

With an endeavor to make Manipur a popular place among Indians and people across the globe, Wanglen Khundongbam 1518294_10151909863023167_2073683394_oa student who has studied in Bangkok and London returned to his hometown in order to capture Manipur in his films.

“In India itself, most people don’t know about Manipur. So, how do you expect people from other countries to know about its existence? After getting the required education and some experience in the field, I returned to my hometown in 2012 and started working on my first film ‘Pallepfam’ (Destiny)”, said Khundongam who is the director and producer of the film.

The 26-year-old Khundongam hails from Imphal and holds a diploma in Digital Filmmaking from SAE Bangkok and a similar degree from London’s Middlesex University.

“ ‘Pallepfam’ was selected as the opening film of the festival. I think it’s an honour for the state. I was lauded by many movie-goers for the picturization, story and direction. And the audience was not just from the northeast. It is quite encouraging,” said the budding filmmaker, who is also planning to send the movie to more film festivals.

“We have thought of doing five projects. We have started working on the screenplay of the first one. At least, two of the films should release by mid of next year,” said the filmmaker, who also takes up advertising projects and does architecture concept designing to earn his livelihood.
