  • Ocean of an Old Man

    2008. India. Written and directed by Rajesh Shera. With Tom Alter, Phalguni Gangopadhyaya, Manik Lal Rakshit. Set in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands off the eastern coast of India in the aftermath of the devastating 2004 tsunami, Shera’s debut feature is a delicate meditation on grief and loss amid stunning natural beauty. An elderly British teacher runs a small school serving the children of the neighboring islands, several of whom have disappeared after a catastrophic wave that killed thousands. Reeling from the loss of his own family and haunted by memories and dreams, he guides—and follows—the children as they come to terms with the tragedy. In Hindi; English subtitles. 84 min.

In the Film exhibition Global Lens, 2010
