The Potter: Shaping Lives

A true story that shows how individual will can begin transformation for good. ‘The Potter’ is the story of a young man who suddenly becomes aware of the reality of the society he lives in and his surroundings, and witnesses the underlying, naked truth. The reality dawned upon him shakes his very soul. Thus transformed and determined to initiate the change himself, he takes up the role of the Potter to shape the lives of the underprivileged. All characters and situations depicted in the film are real. The film was conceptualized, shot, edited and completed in 88 hours and portrays real location, people and story.

The film strikes the very message and ideal of: ‘There is Hope..I am the Change!’.
The film raises the cause of Child Rights and Education and how Education is the fundamental right of every child. It encourages viewers to sponsor atleast 1 child, for if each one of us, instead of merely complaining, steps forth and sponsors a child’s education, we will succeed in transforming our society forever.
