Still from Siddheshwari

Two of Mani Kaul’s films: Dhrupad and Siddheshwari will be presented at the Museum of the Modern Art (MoMA) in New York from August 24-26, 2012.

“Kaul made about a dozen films, each one of them distinctive, original, and beautiful, and each touching upon an aspect of Indian daily life or culture,” as stated on MoMA’s website.

Dhrupad (1984) is a documentary that explores a form of Indian classical music dating from the 15th century, as performed (for the most part) by the Dagar Brothers.

Siddheshwari (1990) is an impressionistic biographical look at Siddheshwari Devi (1908–1977), the classical Indian singer whose voice was appreciated by the maharajas and public alike.

Alms for a Blind Horse (Anhey Ghorey Da Daan) directed by Gurvinder Singh (who was mentored by Mani Kaul) will be screened from August 22-28, 2012 as part of monthly exhibition ‘ContemporAsian’ at MoMA ( see here).
