ARTISTS

Amrit Gangar

What do quest, austerity and Indian notions of time and space, and have to do with experiment and film-making? In these times of great advances in technology, are we being ruled by technology, or are we letting technology liberate us?

In 2005, Amrit Gangar first introduced his concept of Cinema of Prayoga that attempts to reconfigure the generally accepted notion of the Experimental and the Avant-garde coming from the West. At its core, Cinema of Prayoga nurtures the essence of austerity and asceticism as an artistic praxis that resists the fears of the market and the money. In the process, the rigour of austerity becomes a pivotal artistic edge.

We are delighted to invite Amrit Gangar - writer, curator, historian - to Mumbai Local, to share with us his concept of Cinema of Prayoga. A concept that has been shared internationally and that has piqued the interest of film studies at centres across the world. A conversation with Amrit about creating artistic work is also a conversation about attitudes to life and living - for him, there is little difference between the two.

At this Mumbai local, we can look forward to an evening of film and philosophy, idealism and pragmatism. Brilliant scenes from the films of  Dadasaheb Phalke, Ritwik Ghatak, Mani Kaul, Satyajit Ray, Robert Bresson and  Jean-Luc Godard will be accompanied by anecdotes of innovation that form the inspirational ground for Amrits ideas. And we will also get a glimpse into work created by the Cinema of Prayoga - examples of what is possible and what doors are being further opened.

We look forward to seeing you on Fri 18 August, 5:30 pm at Kitab Khana. And in keeping with the people-driven nature of Mumbai Local, we request you to please tell at least 5 of your friends, so more of us may have the opportunity of such conversations.
