ISM (2015) is a short film directed by Kabeer Khurana. Its mise en scene is vaguely educational and features students dressed in graduation attire sitting on chairs. What follows is a game of ideological musical chairs, as students switch between various polar points of view at the behest of an electric school bell. Through ‘ISM,’ Khurana emphasises how these tags of ‘fundamentalism,’ ‘capitalism’ and so on, inhibit real discussion and polarise young minds against compromise.
