And I make short films

In this film Sastry upturns all conventions of documentary and fiction filmmaking to debunk the supposed 'truth' of the cinema-verite image. It is an irreverent and caustic note on the purpose of documentary film making and the responsibility of a film maker – is s/he merely a technician involved in a formal exercise or someone engaged in the sociological concerns that films are answerable to. Is one of these purposes of film making nobler or more respectable than the other?

This film, often categorised as an experimental film, is a treat.
