UK PREMIERE Eleven Miles + Introduction
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Eleven Miles (Egaro Mile), dir. Ruchir Joshi, India 1991, 160 min., English & Bengali with English subtitles

Ruchir Joshi’s Eleven Miles, here presented in a newly restored version, is a classic example of the essay form as not just a way of thinking but as a mode of being. Part diary, part road movie, part anthropological investigation, the film is a self-reflexive account of Joshi’s persistent attempts to make a study of a group of Bauls (Bengal’s traditional wandering musicians), whose artistic practice mixes life and performance, spirituality and the mundane, social comment and desire, eternity and the modern, in ways that make them resistant, elusive, and endlessly fascinating subjects for Joshi’s camera-eye.

The screening will be introduced by the filmmaker Ruchir Joshi.
With the support of CHASE Doctoral Training Partnership and Arsenal Institute for Film and Video Art (Berlin).
