    New Delhi, Feb 23 (IANS) Pocket Films, known for bringing short films to the forefront, is here with a film titled "O Mother", an attempt by director Prashant Bhagia to spread awareness about women with AIDS.

Words fall short to describe her pain when she helplessly sees her little child crying out of hunger," Sameer Mody, managing director of Pocket Films, said in a statement.
