Early morning,1973, close to the sea; the artist Ramanujam disappears into his drawing, after turning into a black dog. Many speculations follow, on images, immortality and dreams.
Ramanujam lived and worked at the Cholamandal Artists' Village in Chennai, situated along the south-eastern coast of India. The Village sought to bring together community living and contemporary art for the first time in the country. The realisation of a radical dream, it was set up in 1966 by a group of young artists from The Madras College of Art, under the guidance of their facilitator, K C S Panicker. The work produced by the artists significantly contributed to The Madras Movement of Art.
The film will be introduced by the artist S G Vasudev, who will share his experiences of Cholamandal Artists' Village and introduce the artistic context of K Ramanujam.
The film will be followed by a discussion with the filmmaker.
Mochu is a filmmaker and artist, trained in film and video from the National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad.
Mochu received a grant for this project from IFA under its Arts Research and Documentation Programme.

"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
