Written, directed and edited by Shanti Thakur 1999, experimental documentary,9 minutes, color/b&w.
"Impressionistic cinematography is juxtaposed with searing archival images while spare narration combines with a nuanced sound design. The viewer is swept into the mood of the piece and must consider the long-lasting effects-both internal and external-of conflict and change." Kristine Samuelson, Stanford University
This 9 minute film Seven Hours to Burn is sublime..what Thakur achieves in 9 minutes is extraordinary!
