Canvases on celluloid

The art film genre can be divided into several subgenres, says cultural 
commentator Sadanand Menon. There are descriptive films, like Satyajit 
Ray <http://www.thehindu.com/thread/reflections/article8547425.ece>’s 
/The Inner Eye/, that provide historical context to an artist and his or 
her creations. Ray’s 1972 documentary on a blind artist and teacher, 
Benode Behari Mukherjee, from Visva-Bharati University comes with the 
filmmaker’s own sonorous, weighty commentary. Arun Khopkar’s /Figures of 
Thought /on Bhupen Khakar, Nalini Malani and Vivan Sundaram, and 
/Colours of Absence /on Jehangir Sabavala are the most celebrated and 
cerebral documentaries on Indian artists.
