SABA DEWAN FILM
RV Ramani’s autobiographical film My Camera and Tsunami documents December 2005, when Ramani lost his camera in the tsunami on a Chennai beach. The film is a metaphor for a point from where one looks back at all that is lost, in Ramani’s case his past footage. Time is scrutinised. The documentary format’s preoccupation with the immediate present is questioned. Deeply philosophical. Its beauty lies in its multiple interpretations. Complex, yet deceptively simple, different audiences take away different things from it.
