Ship of Theseus
(Ship of Theseus)

by Anand GANDHI

Ship of Theseus

How do Theseus’ ship and the resulting paradox tie in with the characters of Anand Gandhi’s debut feature film? When all the components of an object are replaced by others with identical appearance and functions, to what extent is it still the same? What the characters of the three stories in Anand Gandhi’s film – Aaliya Kamal, a young blind Egyptian photographer, Maitreya, a scholarly monk, and Navin, the young stockbroker – have in common is that they need or are waiting for an organ transplant. In the remarkably recreated tumult of Mumbai, an exploration of their perceptions and what determines their relationship with the world. A first film driven by a passionate ambition. JB
