The Films Of Mani Kaul | cinema of mani kaul | Scoop.it

"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 was not just searching for his own swabhaav, it appears, but also for the swabhaav of the medium of cinema!

Understanding Mani Kaul and his films

Understanding Mani Kaul and his films | cinema of mani kaul | Scoop.it

A filmmaker is sustained through his films; his art lives longer than him. Kaul might have left us, but each time a film lover somewhere plays a disc with his film on it, he will gain immortality. He will be resurrected in his work.

Mani Kaul | UNESCO Courier

"The Indian cinema is threatened today by a real danger, apart from hardening of the arteries, and that is the invasion of dubbed American films. The offensive has been launched. We wonder how we can react from inside what we thought was a fortress. But, despite its strong personality, India clearly risks being faced with a major problem: the gradual disappearance of genuinely indian images, words and cinema, possibly leading to a loss of identity."

'Kaul delved into world of traditional philosophy' - Hindustan Times | cinema of mani kaul | Scoop.it

"...cinematic expression that invoked the structural elements of cinema to collapse the dichotomy of time and space. It not only challenged the obscene spectacle of commercial cinema but also was a scathing critique of Satyajit Ray's neo-realist idiom."

Requiem For A Vision

Requiem  For A Vision | cinema of mani kaul | Scoop.it

"Kaul despised the middle of the road art cinema because he thought it was morally and aesthetically false. He preferred Bollywood because it had no pretensions, and did not produce a should or a prescription in its attitude towards the world, which middle of the road cinema did. His brilliance lay in having found the pulse of his own aesthetic, and his ethics lay in never having compromised it. “An artist is a strange, individual birth,” he said."

"Human institutions are re-calibrating our standards of excellence so low, that the aspirations and idealism essential in every young mind are being choked before given a chance to breathe, let alone live.  Mani loved nurturing and sharing ideas with young minds, trying to make them question in that ancient philosophic sense which today few teachers even bother to explore."

The Beat Of Time By Madan Gopal Singh

The Beat Of Time By Madan Gopal Singh | cinema of mani kaul | Scoop.it

"Mani Kaul, the filmmaker and a dear friend, dealt with the notion of how the uninterrupted body of time would emerge through the cinematic image. Watching Uski Roti at its very first screening in 1969 unsettled me."

Prashant Parvataneni's insight:

Madan Gopal Singh has written beautifully textured readings of Kaul's films especially inquiring the ideas and notions of time (cinematic and otherwise). Here he talks about his engagement with Kaul and how their interactions triggered questions on time in his mind.
