Indian Documentary Film and Literature
Attended the Goa Documentary Film Festival at the Kala Academy on 23 December. The guest of honor was "Gulzar", noted India film maker and poet. The opening film was his documentary on the "Sahitya Akademi", the national Indian literary academy, who are celebrating their 50th adversary (and looking to produce e-books). While Indian authors have become popular in the west in the last few years, the film pointed out that they are decades of authors in dozens of languages before that.
