'Documentaries undergoing radical change'

Delivering the keynote address at the inaugural ceremony of ‘Travelling Film South Asia’ (TFSA), a five-day documentary film festival organised by Manipal Film Study Centre, a unit of Manipal Institute of Communication, here at T A Pai Planetarium, he said that documentaries are undergoing radical changes.

Documentaries are conscious to claim that they are real and indicative of the signs of real. They have deep engagement with the nature of real and truth.

Typically documentaries recreate reality rather than represent the real things. Fertile re-thinking is what is involved in the process of documentary making. The most thematic idea is to attempt to make real and present real as more real, he added.
Sarukai said the depth of vision is missing in films that are completely negated. They lack the reality of perception in contrast to the documentaries. They have the conflict with the presentation of real.

The movie ‘Avatar’ by David Cameroon is the biggest revolution that has taken place in recent times. It stands spaced out in contrast to the real notion of film making, he added.
MIC Honorary Director M V Kamath, Director Vardesh Heeregange and others were present.
The films that are being screened at the festival include Children of God (Nepal), Afghan Girls can kick (Afghanistan), Saamam (India), Mayomi (Sri Lanka), Come to my Country (India), The Salt Stories (India), Way of the Road (Nepal), In search of Riyal (Nepal), Battle for Pakistan (Pakistan), Out of thin Air (India), The Promised Land (Bangladesh), and The Last Rites (Bangladesh).
