The 18th-century miniaturist painter Nainsukh and his prince’s court come to life in the abandoned palaces and landscapes of today’s Kangra Valley. The actor playing Nainsukh is himself a miniaturist and continues the gestures of the past.
Amit Dutta (1977, India) was educated in film and television at the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) in 2004, and is now regarded as one of the most successful experimental filmmakers from his country. Dutta has made more than 40 films and published six books. His works range from literary adaptations, fiction, documentation, video-diary and animation, often blurring genres in an attempt to engage directly with the subjects. He has won various awards, including the FIPRESCI Prize for his short film To Be Continued (2007) in Oberhausen and the Jury’s Special Mention Prize for his first feature film, The Man’s Woman and Other Stories (2009), in Venice.
