Film Thieves: Memory and Reference as Raw-stock

Ruchir Joshi and Joshy Joseph  |  19 March 2016  |  Delhi

Playing on cinematic memory. Referencing visual traditions to make them filmic. Building on, critiquing and celebrating works that have already addressed our current preoccupations. And finally, celebrating the film or video medium. These are the themes this conversation seeks to address, using references from the panelists’ work.
