From the early ’70s onwards, Indian cinematographer Navroze Contractor—who passed away last year at age 80—blazed a trail of radical image-making. Trained in fine arts, photography, and cinematography, Contractor wielded the camera as a weapon and a paintbrush, capturing both the thrills and the throes of popular uprisings in films that defined political documentary in India. Film Comment presents a double-feature program of two films shot by the cinematographer—"Duvidha", A hypnotic and enigmatic ghost story derived from a Rajasthani folktale, and Sanjiv Shah’s unique musical satire “Love in the Time of Malaria,” which will screen theatrically in the U.S. for the first time—along with an extended conversation with Deepa Dhanraj.
