FILM INFORMATION

Dir. Vipin Vijay, India, GFI grant 2008.
An epic tale of spirituality and self-discovery is revealed through the eyes of an Internet hacker and his black magician grandfather.


.
Sandeep Chatterjee
"An exciting surrealist tale about a computer teacher, a black magician and a cyber creature who are predestined for online and offline encounters. The story oscillates between Indian mythology, personal symbolism and the cyber world. Stunningly original.

Like goddess Tara, the beautiful Ramani struggles to deny the body to get more in touch with the spiritual. The third main character is Hari’s black magician grandfather, who sporadically appears in his memories. Interweaving computer science, Indian mythology, numerology and personal symbolism, the author takes us on a contemplative journey. Exploring the virtual reality and the conscious world, the film enables us to make our own wild interpretations of signs and signals and to build a personal micromemory while presering a genuine Indian sensitivity. The brilliantly conceived sound design determines the rhythm and often assists in decoding the images.

Image Threads was the recipient of the Hassankutty Award at the 2010 Kerala International Film Festival."
