A production company on a bold mission to revolutionise filmmaking one shot at a time

About Us

Based in Manipur, Yelhoumee Pictures is a creative production house with a noble goal to produce quality films that are emphasised on form and content. We are involved in films, videos, animations as well as multiple, cross-platform audio-visual media in the most aesthetic ways. Our main objective is to create responsible films that are of sociopolitical relevance.

We also believe in building a network of filmmakers and other innovative artists at the global level for exchanging ideas and collaboration. Once we called ourselves as One Inch Production but to reflect our mission, it has been renamed and registered officially. ‘Yelhoumee’ in our native language means ‘indigenous’. Yelhoumee Pictures works in diverse areas of promoting films and television programmes, professional photography and shoots, organising events for opinion-makers and experts in the industry and finding means to raise the quality and standards of film and photography.

Gun and a God

Purnima is having the best of her evenings with her inmates in a jail room. Yet her every laughs and giggles are concealing a grave conflict. The visiting hours in the jail are dreadful with no one to visit her. These are the times when she finds herself asking who she is. Tagged as a “disgraced inheritance”, from an unknown father to a mentally unfit mother, her childhood was chastised. The reality of being an illegitimate child haunts during her teens and when she was married, it crucified her. A “Gun and a God” is the journey a woman, whose will was forged by the structural violence of her existence, who finally finds her voice in a Gun and justice in a God.
