“National Film Award is a pat on the back for us, which motivates us to move forward. Wining & losing awards doesn’t differentiate superior movies from inferior ones. Every film maker has his / her own art & craft and personalised way of telling stories. Awards assure you that you are in the right direction. It also opens a lot avenues for collaboration, coproduction & many other things”, said Praveen Morchhale, Director of the national award-winning film, Walking with the Wind. He was addressing a joint press conference at the 49th International Film Festival of India (IFFI), in Panaji, Goa today November 27, 2018, along with Abhaya Simha, director of another national award-winning film Paddayi.

Walking with the wind is a Ladakhi language entry in the Indian Panorama section, competing for ICFT UNESCO Gandhi Medal for this year. Sharing his idea behind filmmaking, Praveen Morchhale said that Ladakhi people are the most beautiful, humble and content people on the earth. Living with limited resources, rough weather & facing four months of snowfall, they maintain a happy mood. We did beautiful exploration of Ladakh for choosing the cast. We chose non-actors for our script. Role of carpenters, poets & other professionals were performed by local people in the region who were involved in respective professions, he added. He also pointed out that no background music was used in this film. Surround sound along with other natural sounds of winds & water breeze alone were used. Even then, it won national award for Best Sound Design and Best Sound Mixing.
