And Miles To Go...

1965 14’ b&w English d/p S. Sukhdev c K. Vaikunth, K. Ghanekar m Vasant Desai

Sukhdev’s first major propaganda film ‘dedicated to all the forces of rationalist thought that are opposed to the path of violence’. After a parallel montage of stereotypical rich/poor oppositions, the camera cuts to the face of the film-maker looking angry. After some shots of street violence in negative images, a voice declaims ‘The people speak with the voice of history’. After some fast cuts of a police blockade and sounds of gunfire comes the film’s message calling for rational thought: the real enemy is greed and corruption, not the State.
