They Shot Pictures Episode #04: Mani Kaul

In this episode of They Shot Pictures, I am joined by my colleagues here at Reel Time, Ty Landis and Chris Clark, as we watch and discuss the films of Indian filmmaker, Mani Kaul. We discuss his debut feature Our Daily Bread and follow that up with two of his other features, In Two Minds and The Gaze.

Mani Kaul passed away in July of last year and this is our little attempt at examining how his work stands apart not just from Bollywood and other Indian cinema but also marks him as a unique distinct filmmaker overall.
