0-41* is a 91-minute account of real people, real lives and real experiences, set in a real place. Directed by Senna Hegde, this full-length Indian docudrama features dramatized re-enactments of actual events and offers an in-depth and honest look at the rural way of life in India. The film has no actors. It is filmed in a neorealist/documentary style with actual people playing characters with the same names and occupations as in real life, thus blurring the boundaries between drama and reality.[1] Aided by the flourishing landscapes of Kanhangad, with Arai river roaring in the background, this film is a beautiful representation of the everyday life of a group of people who spend their evenings playing Volleyball, entering a world far removed from the bustle of life. The film showcases their life, their aspirations and fears, and their point of view on the rest of the world. Volleyball becomes the crucial part of this film as it acts as the thread holding the film together.

The film had its world premiere at the 11th Cinema On The Bayou Film Festival at Lafayette, USA.[2]


A bunch of local youth in a small town in India are closely knit by a game of volleyball every evening. Rajesh and Vipin lead the two teams with a great deal of passion until a seemingly endless losing streak sets Rajesh and his team on a trail of disbelief and dejection. The docudrama proceeds to draw a subtle parallel between the losing streak and the lives of these youth. Over the course of six days, this film brings into sharp focus their life stories, their aspirations and expectations, their faith and fears and their view on the rest of the world with the rural way of life in India providing a vivid backdrop.[3]
