Writer-director Insia Dariwala's latest film Cock-Tale has won the Golden Camera Award in 6th Nashik International Film Festival (NIFF) 2014.

The filmmaker who had earlier won two Best Director awards in India and was also nominated at the New York Short Film Festival and Barcelona International Film Festival in 2010 for her last film Candy Man again chose a hard-hitting subject. In the present social context where every minute close to 24 women are raped around the world, Cock-Tale is a reply to this society.

Cock-Tale is a chilling drama that unfolds in a small village that houses both a saint and a sinner. Apoorva is a young, middle-class village girl who nurtures big city dreams; dreams that also include becoming a doctor and saving her mother from a terminal heart disease.

Unfortunately, one night, throwing caution to the wind, Apoorva makes the mistake of venturing into the den of Umesh a man most known for his eccentricities and weird pets. However, what she and no one else know is that this otherwise reticent man harbours some dark, dirty secrets in his house.

One such secret rocks Apoorva’s world, but just as she is reeling from the shock, Umesh walks in on her. There is no escape now as Umesh unleashes his world of debauchery. What follows next is a bizarre game of survival between good and evil.

Says Dariwala, "This film is my unheard voice, it is the voice of millions of women across the world who have been raped, molested, and brutally tortured every day. It is for all those survivors who wish, hope and pray for justice every minute of their lives."

Earlier the filmmaker had also directed a documentary titled Surviving Deonar and co-directed award winning international documentary 17 Not Required Indians that recently also won a special mention at the MIFF 2014.
