Mani Kaul no more   Topic List   < Prev Topic  |  Next Topic >

Dear friends,

Film-maker Mani Kaul passed away early this morning, at his home in Gurgaon.


To quote from Upperstall.com:

"Mani Kaul is undoubtedly the Indian filmmaker who along with Kumar Shahani has
succeeded in radically overhauling the relationship of image to form, of speech
to narrative, with the objective of creating a 'purely cinematic object' that is
above all visual and formal."

Mani Kaul's significant body of work included both feature films and
documentaries.
In an interview Mani stated: "The dividing line from my films and documentaries
is thin. Some of my films like "Siddheshwari" are like poetic documentaries."

Mani Kaul's fellow alumni from FTII intend to put together a collective tribute
to Mani Kaul and his work. Interested persons may send in their thoughts on Mani
as a film maker, teacher/ mentor, colleague, and as a person.

sincerely,

Praba Mahajan
