Ganapati: A Spirit In The Bush

1986, 45:00 minutes, colour, B&W, English


Powered by the poetry of Lorca, Rilke, Kipling and Reeves, this impassioned lament to subjugated and slaughtered elephants earns its polemical stance, and the broader relation to inhumanity it seeks by force of its compelling subject matter.

Poème moral électronique sur le rapport établi entre lanimal et l'homme: vénéré par certaines cultures et assujetti par les Occidentaux, l'éléphant sert ici d'exemple. Jeu à partir d'images, de musiques et de textes puisés dans différentes sources, Ganapati est un requiem sur l'avillissent réciproque.
