      Special Package curated by Bina Paul: Works of Art are Landscapes of the Mind
      This set of films together in their art and expression not only reveal the landscape of the minds of the artist but also of the characters. The films move through ideas of memory and its erasure secrets discovery of each other and contemplations of death. These films could probably alter the landscape of a viewer’s mind as all art is meant to do. At this moment when all the world hit by the pandemic is rebooting perhaps this alteration is what will bring greater understanding tolerance and joy.
