SOUTHEAST ASIAN PREMIERE
Directed by: Yashaswini Raghunandan
Runtime: 65 minutes
Language: Bengali with English subtitles
In a Bengali village, various inhabitants create colourful, musical toys made from discarded 35mm Bollywood film reels. Every day,they labour to produce hundreds of toys, consisting of everything from whirligigs and merry-go-rounds to flutes and whistles. As the reels are ripped apart and spliced together, the villagers give these films a second life, with new hybrid narratives spilling forth from the reconfigured cinematic remains, filling the village with clouds of phantasmagoria. Dreams of a different life emerge. Meanwhile, a lunar eclipse approaches. In her poetic debut feature, director Yashaswini Raghunandan plays not only with the boundaries between documentary and fiction, but also with what we as viewers expect from cinema’s material audio-visual elements.
