16th Jecheon International Music & Film Festival

14th(2018)
Siddheshwari
India | 1989 | 89min | Color | Documentary | Classic

PROGRAM NOTE

A film about the great thumri singer Siddheshwari Devi(1908-1977). Breaking all conventional modes of biographical or documentary film making, this film becomes a work of transgression. It transgresses both home and dream. Like a Sufi wanderer, it celebrates the life of exile. Here is a film that takes the 'documentary' non-representational to its limits, turning the fictional material natural to a biography into a presentation, and the objects and locations into an imaginative becoming of music.
