Narayan Kamble is 65 years old; he’s a poet, musician, professor, and political activist. His everyday activities include a series of travelling performances through the neighborhoods of Mumbai. He gets arrested during one of his shows, under charges of inciting a worker to commit suicide. This is the starting point for young filmmaker Chaitanya Tamhane’s great debut film, which won the Best Opera Prima and Best Film in the Orizzonti section awards at the latest edition of the Venice Film Festival. Through the judicial process that takes place in different courts, the film not only documents the injustice of this particular case, but also demonstrates the perverse and bureaucratic workings of India’s judicial system, while also featuring a curious mirror game between the artistic and judicial mise en scène. With a lucid, sharp, and human perspective, and an absolutely personal appropriation of film language, the films stands as profound social reflection with poetry, politics, and freedom of expression as the cores of the debate.
