In Conversation with Shoojit Sircar: The first part of this session will be Satyanshu Singh’s analysis of ‘Piku’ and ‘October’ – two movies where the internal change a character goes through becomes the film and not a conventional, tangible plot. Mr. Shoojit Sircar will join us during the second and the more interactive half of the session, to answer your questions on his work.
