City – The Perceptual Field of Inspirations

by Kiranmayi Indraganti

Through the study of her student’s film on Bidar, Indraganti traces the historic walled city in north Karnataka. She argues that the city is a perceptual field of inspirations, something that is free-flowing, ever changing and boundless—just like cinema, the city too is beyond its materiality.
