Saatvin sair

Amit Dutta is an old friend of IFFR's whose distinguished cinematic expression our audiences have enjoyed in several of his previous works. This one, like the earlier Nainsukh (IFFR 2011) shot in the same landscape (Kangra Valley), enters the world of a painter, only this time the painter is contemporary and creates abstract work. Mixing dreams, desires, imagination and reality, the filmmaker provides for his main hero an oneiric milieu where transposition from one world to the other is easy and inspirational. Provoked by inviting sounds and unidentified footprints, the painter wanders along mysterious paths in a forest, meeting characters from his own dream.
Dutta’s associative narrative and innovative cinematic approach opens up an intriguing space for viewers to contemplate and find their own interpretations. Amit Dutta is a well-known arthouse and experimental maker whose work has been shown at venues like the MoMA and festivals like Venice.
