New Delhi: Shadow Circus: A Personal Archive of Tibetan Resistance (1956–1974) Exhibition, a project by film directors Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam will open here at India International Centre on 20 April.
The exhibition, SHADOW CIRCUS, re-evaluates the audiovisual material that Ritu and Tenzing gathered over the years by weaving in Lhamo Tsering’s personal archives, and presenting a re-mastered version of their documentary, to create a more complete and complex mosaic of this still largely obscure story.
The inaugural version of SHADOW CIRCUS was curated by Natasha Ginwala and Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung with assistant curator Krisztina Hunya. It was co-produced by and exhibited at SAVVY Contemporary in Berlin from 7 February to 10 March 2019, within the programme of the 14th Forum Expanded, 69th Berlinale. This is the first time SHADOW CIRCUS is on view in India.
A free screening of the film “The Sweet Requiem” will be held on 21 April at CD Deshmukh Auditorium.
The directors Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam will be present at the screening.
