JUMP CUT
A REVIEW OF CONTEMPORARY MEDIA

Notes

1. Jai Prakash Narayan or J.P. writes Norman Palmer (1975) “is a veteran Gandhian apostle of non- violence who enjoys perhaps the highest reputation of any prominent Indian for absolute integrity and selflessness. He re-emerged into the political arena in early1974 as a champion of student-initiated protest movements in Bihar and challenged Mrs. Gandhi to test the popularity of her party and her "corrupt" government through the electoral process”(96).

2. According to Mestman, through the Cine Liberación, Solanas and Getino were to film the testimony of Perón for screening in Argentina as part of the political work supporting his return from exile in Madrid.

3. Vilas Ghoghre committed suicide in 1997 following a series of violent attacks on Dalits in his residential colony in Mumbai. Anand Patwardhan’s film Jai Bhim Comrade (2012) is a political examination of caste relations that led to this extreme step. Constructed without narration the film instead includes songs performed by a contemporary Dalit political group, Kabir Kala Manch. The production and exhibition of the film is further evidence of the filmmaker’s personal form of filmmaking (see Bernier, 2013). [return to text]
