Still from Ship of Theseus

Pankaj Kumar won the Award for Best Artistic Contribution for his contribution as the cinematographer of Ship of Theseus at Tokyo International Film Festival that concluded yesterday.

The film was in competition under the drama genre at the 25th edition of the festival.

Ship of Theseus is Kumar’s first feature film as a cinematographer. He has worked for five short films earlier namely: Manjha, Solitary Sandpiper, Notes on Her and Aditi Singh. He studied Cinematography at the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune.

“Shooting digitally on a modest budget, Gandhi and cinematographer Pankaj Kumar, who uses a desaturated palette studded with occasional flashes of breath-taking visual poetry, give us a sense of the great city as an entity unto itself, further blurring the line between individual and environment,” The Hollywood reporter commented on Ship of Theseus.

Anand Gandhi’s debut feature film won a Special Mention by the Sutherland Award Jury at the BFI London Film Festival 2012. The film saw its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last month and its Indian premiere at the Mumbai Film Festival this month.
