Directed by acclaimed filmmaker, Social Worker And theater personality, Jitendra Rai of Matheno Films, ‘Cup of Tea’ has received the official selection and nomination in numerous international film festivals and has already won 20 awards.
This includes the best educational short film award at the “Rishikesh International Film festival” India and “Best Jury Prize” at the “Italy Film Festival”. The film has garnered around 80 million views within 6 months on various social media platforms.
On seeing the positive response his film has received, Jitendra Rai said, “The idea for this film came partially from my own personal experience. I come from a small village in Bihar where education was not easily available. So we had to walk to school for several kilometers and back every day, which made it very difficult. Even now, the quality of education there hasn’t improved very much.”
Jitendra Rai has worked with Amole Gupte as assistant director on ‘Stanley Ka Dabba’ & ‘Hawaa Hawaai’ and with Vishal Bhardwaj on ‘Matru Ki Bijalee Ka Mandola’.
