National Award winner director Girish Kasaravalli is back after a two year hiatus. The director who last directed Koormavatara is back with yet another offering. The acclaimed director has made a documentary on Jnanpeeth Award winner U R Ananthamurthy.
The documentary titled Ananthamurthy - Not a Documentary But a Hypothesis has been produced by the Films Division. Kasaravalli has written the script, apart from directing it. G S Bhaskar is the cameraman. The documentary has already been screened at the Sulochana Hall at the Information Department in Bangalore and the documentary will have more shows in the coming weeks.
Kasaravalli says that the documentary is not just about his life and works, but his reflection on Gandhian thoughts, socialism and diverse cultural issues that are explicated by critics and thinkers who have interacted with him over several decades.
