by Kumar SHAHANI


Bhavantarana is a contemplative film about the classical dance form Odissi. Through unique and elegant camera choreography, the film explores the life and work of acclaimed Odissi dance maestro, Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra.

« The point is, no film can be made on other arts as if it were some sort of social scientific question. You have to transform and violate the other art to some extent; through juxtaposition and montage, you violate the unity of that particular work, and you have to, because unless you do that you cannot achieve a kind of transcendence. As Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra said of my film, it is not a film ‘on’ him, but something which goes beyond him and beyond gestures; it is an interpretation. »
