Okul Nodi (Endless River) + I am Micro Okul Nodi (Endless River) + I am Micro
Roxie Theater, San Francisco CA
Tuni Chatterji in Person. Two docs that can only be described as visual poetry. A contemplative dialogue between music, landscape and the ephemeral quality of cinema, Okul Nodi (Tuni Chatterji) seeks the origins of Bhatiyali, the river music of Bangladesh. Shot on exquisite 35mm, I Am Micro (Shumona Goel/Shai Heredia) invokes the memories of an experimental filmmaker to deliver an ode to independent cinema.
