Venue: Edouard Michelin Auditorium
Date: Sept 8th
Time: 7:00 pm

Filmmaker: SNS Sastry
SNS Sastry in his inimitably playful manner captures the nation and its people, especially its women, post independence. He invites us into a dialogue between the one looking and the one being looked at. The untiring camera gaze is underscored by ingenious juxtaposition of advertising jingles and popular film dialogues and songs. The film reassures us that along with the nation, the camera is still rolling.

Portraying two minds in identity crisis- the contemporary art giant Wang Guangyi and the up-and-coming photographer Liu Gang, Chimeras freeze frames China at a moment when its aspirations are at war with its sense of identity.
