Amar Kanwar

A Season Outside, 1997
16 mm color film, duration: 30 minutes

Amar Kanwar has made over forty films about a range of issues from politics and economics to philosophy and art. Melding documentary and transcendental rumination to forge a distinct mode of visual essay, A Season Outside is a subtle and poetic work written and narrated by the artist. Soulful, nondidactic and meditative, the film explores the tension and anxiety that surround the militarized border between India and Pakistan.
