India at the 68th La Biennale Film Festival, Venice
Two films from India at Venice Interantional Film Festival's Orizzonti section, 2011
Gurvinder Singh's Anhey Ghohrey da Daan (Alms of a Blind Horse)
Amit Dutta's Son Chidi (The Golden Bird)
Both films feature in Venice’s Orizzonti 2011 section, which presents an exploration of the modes of contemporary cinema.
Playing in Venice is a restored version of the landmark 1973 classic, Duvidha, in tribute to the late Mani Kaul who passed away very recently, made available by the National Film Development Corporation of India.
Venice’s Orizzonti 2011 reinvents the relationship between cinema and the literary narration (comic or dramatic), beyond the conventional forms.
The talented filmmaker Amit Dutta, a favoutirte in Venice, features here with his latest film Son Chidi (The Golden Bird). And so does filmmaker Gurvinder Singh with his film from Punjab, Anhey Ghohrey da Daan (Alms of a Blind Horse)
They join the ranks of of filmmakers inspired by experimentation such as Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt, Mauro Andrizzi, Joseph Dabernig, Edgardo Cozarinsky, Wattanapume Laisuwanchai,. And this, in the year when the Visual Arts Biennale has dedicated a special space to artists who work with images in motion.
