Abhinava Bhattacharyya

Abhinava Bhattacharyya is a New Delhi based filmmaker trained in non-fiction filmmaking at the Creative Documentary Course (SACAC). His interests in art and film have veered towards more experimental filmmaking modes. He seeks the penumbral space of Stan Brakhage's 'untutored eye', going even deeper and further back than the infant's vision (a primal vision in filmmaking that informed Brakhage’s work) to the embryonic impressions of light and sound in the womb and the blood system. Above all else, he is deeply fascinated by the alchemical power of cinema and its potential to address the central darkness at the heart of the human condition on Earth while looking to illuminate the endless interconnections and ancient kinship between the human and non-human.
