London Film Fest To Screen Film By Shillong Filmmaker

Shillong, Oct 6 (UNI) The prestigious British Film Institute, the lead institution for cinema in the United Kingdom which was established by British Royal Charter in 1933, will be showing a film
by a Shillong filmmaker at the 61st London Film Festival this year.
“Noise Life I”, an art film by Sonal Jain and Mriganka Madhukaillya, will be on view at the
festival which kicks off today. The section in the festival is “Excavating Loss” in which
“Landscape and architecture bear witness to melancholia, decay and desire. From politics to
folklore, poetry to drama, these films map out a collision of tradition and modernity.”
Jain and Madhukaillya have been working together since 2004 as a duo known to the global
art world as Desire Machine Collective.
Jain describes Noise Life I as “a film with sound”. And it is, “an exploration of schizophrenia
and the colonisation of human sensibility by ‘noise’ in a post-industrial sonic environment…”
“The objective of ‘’Noise life” is to sketch out a history of the different ways in which we
develop knowledge about ourselves: economics, biology, psychiatry, medicine and penology.
It seeks to analyze these so-called sciences as very specific “truth games” related to specific techniques that we use to understand ourselves.”
Jain and Madhukaillya are emerging as the most innovative contemporary artist/film-makers
in India. Their masterful short film, Residue was part of the major show Being Singular Plural: Moving Images of India show at the Solomon Guggenheim Museum, New York and the
Deutsch Guggenheim Museum.
Jain has received accolades and recognition around the world for her work, which has been featured at prestigious museums like New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; MAXXI,
Rome; the Venice Biennale; La Triennale, Palais de Tokyo, Paris; the Tate Modern London and
the Centre Pompidou Paris.
She is now one of few Indians making a foray into cinema of the kind made famous by auteurs such as Ingmar Bergman and Wong Kar Wai.
