  • Nainsukh

    2010. India. Directed by Amit Dutta. The life of the 18th-century artist Nainsukh, perhaps the most famous painter of the Pahari people of northern India, remains shrouded in mystery. Born into a family of painters who worked in the naturalist Mughal style, Nainsukh became a master of the art form, depicting both the ceremony of life at court and the intimate moments of day-to-day life. Reenactments of 18th-century Indian life, juxtaposed with Nainsukh’s works, create a hypnotic fusion of imagery and sound that conjures up a lost age. 75 min.
