Talkies – The Warrior
April 20, 2017 @ 7:45 pm - 10:00 pm
This stunningly visual film, Asif Kapadia’s debut feature, has the timeless quality of a morality tale and tells the story of an Indian warrior who, while working as an enforcer for the heartless master of the Rajput people, has a crisis of conscience, renounces violence and seeks redemption. The warrior’s epic journey – with the hunter having now become the hunted- was was shot in Rajasthan and the Himalayas with breath-taking beauty and simplicity by Roman Osin. It’s about people stuck in an ancient culture of repression, greed and revenge and how some can escape it through a spiritual path. The violence is mainly off-screen and there is something calm and seductively mysterious in the scenes and sequences that Kapadia conjures up, and also plenty of good old storytelling gusto.
