Tiger Fight

a film by Martin Repka

Short film / Slovakia / India / Austria 2013 // 15 min // DCP


It was an ordinary working day for the once famous Tamil film director SHARMA up to the moment when the Tiger Dancer KADER appears in his office to ask for an acting chance.

Due to his arrogance towards KADER he misses his opportunity for a bright comeback. TIGER FIGHT is a tribute to the South Indian "Kollywood".
