That Cloud Never Left, dir. Yashaswini Raghunandan, India 2019, Bengali with English subtitles
In Daspara, a village 200km outside of Calcutta, hundreds of toys are produced every day: rattles, whistles, windmills, all made by hand. The raw materials used are old strips of film, detritus from the archives of Bollywood. What matters isn’t so much the pictures that are used by the workers, but rather the material and the clicking sound that the strips of film make. As the villagers follow this routine with uninterrupted monotony, a few narratives leak out from the shredded analogues of film and infuse the place with phantasmagoria.
