Made a year before the Emergency, Flash Back was commissioned by Films Division to commemorate its 25th anniversary. Sastry, with his ever-surprising style, turns this “history of” film into a joyous mix, bringing together archival film footage, documentation of Films Division’s infrastructure, and the musings of John Grierson, Ezra Mir, S. Sukhdev and himself, to tussle with the role of documentary cinema.
