Hawakal’s logo was designed by renowned artist Hiran Mitra: slightly difficult to spell by people who are not Bengalis and pronounced ‘Hawakol’ (Hawa denotes air, Kol denotes device or mill, Hawakal or Hawakol means windmill), the word upholds the importance of the alternative source of energy.

Illumination

A 20-minute documentary film that explores the work of critically acclaimed poet Kiriti Sengupta. This film, Illumination, illumines the audience about Dr. Sengupta’s poetry and poetic contributions over the past ten years. The poet is the actor impressing his journey from being a reputed clinical tutor in a government medical hospital to a poet with several foreign literary publications, interviews, and widely reviewed books. He makes a critical remark in the documentary refuting poetry as a tool for change. Such exclamation invites the audience, particularly the Bengali literati, to introspect their idea of poetry as the first tool of revolution.

Illumination has been cinematographed by Raktim Mondal and music by Joell Mukherjii. But, unfortunately, shot in the mid of February 2020, the film could not be released as planned due to the Covid situation. So, the documentary is finally reserved for release on the YouTube channel of Hawakal Publishers on October 6th at 8 am (IST). Promita Bhowmik’s Illumination shot in the premises of Nimta Health Center that once housed a recycle plant invites documentary lovers to explore the assembling of a poet in his ruins. Illumination was a Finalist at the First-Time Filmmaker Sessions March 2020, managed by Lift-Off Global Network Limited, Pinewood Studios, England. The short film was also nominated and screened at the 2nd Siliguri International Short Film Festival (December 2020).
