Arising from the Surface

Satah se Uthata Aadmi

Directed by Mani Kaul
India, 1980


Taking an experimental approach to the relationship between the written text and moving image, Mani Kaul has a series of texts read aloud in voice-overs (poetry, essays, and stories), while the characters within the texts walk through real or imaginary landscapes.
