SUMMARY : This presentation will show how, since the liberalization of the media and digital revolution of the 1990s and 2000s, a new generation of Indian documentary filmmakers has grown aloof from the official state-sponsored documentary film, inherited the early "activist" documentary cinema of the 1970s, while opening up to a wider range of subjects and styles. It will argue that, beyond claims of "independence", they have inherited a space of resistance that never totally broke away from the official and mainstream spheres.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
