In conversation: TONY COKES and Ruchir Joshi | Essay Film Festival 2023

Institute of Contemporary Arts, London
The Mall, St. James's, London SW1Y 5AH
This program features two short city films that Ruchir Joshi made following the three-year experience of Eleven Miles. Commissioned by Alan Fountain at Channel Four, both films focus on Indian cities in the early 1990s, respectively Ahmedabad in Memories of Milk City and the filmmaker’s hometown in Tales from Planet Kolkata, employing what Joshi describes as ‘the first-person diary, the subjective essay and the meditative-poetic form’ to engage critically with existing representations of these places and their inhabitants, and crucially to propose new forms and ways of thinking about them.
Following the screening, Ruchir Joshi will be in conversation with artist TONY COKES.
