Amit Dutta: Three Shorts on Indian Painting

As part of our Amit Dutta's Cinematic Museum film series, we are screening Amit Dutta: Three Shorts on Indian Painting: Continuing the exploration begun in Nainsukh, these three shorts see Dutta experimenting with radically different approaches to the master and his descendants' work. Gita Govinda stays closest to the paintings themselves, employing audio cues and a virtuosic collage style to bring the dynamic compositions by Nainsukh's artistic heirs to life. Field-Trip follows scholar B. N. Goswamy as he tracks down contemporary vestiges of Nainsukh's lineage. Scenes from a Sketchbook takes multiple stabs at dramatizing the paintings, playfully evoking the quixotic nature of Dutta's enterprise as well as Nainsukh's own habit of leaving traces of his process in the completed work. --Max Goldberg For more info visit: http://bampfa.org/event/amit-dutta-three-shorts-indian-painting
