Kumar Shahani is one of the most significant filmmakers working in India today will visit Kerala in the last week of September. TheDepartment of Youth Welfare, Cochin University of Science and
Technology have invited him to the state under the erudite
programme of the Government during 24th – 30th September 2011 to
the Cochin University of Science and Technology campus.
Kumar Shahani is a filmmaker who has been able to carve an aesthetic
path and create a new cinematic language that is very much his own
and as iconoclastic as his colleague, Mani Kaul. The two of them are
largely responsible for the development of the ‘New Indian Cinema’ or
the ‘Indian New Wave’ in creating an avant-garde cinema whose
ideology was vastly different from the aesthetics of mainstream
cinema as it was prevalent then.
During the period of visit, he will be taking sessions on theatre/films
for students and scholars, interacting with students, scholars, theatre
activists, actors and directors across the state.
