CBCS4: Ghatashraddha

Ghatashraddha (Pot Ritual, Girish Kasaravalli, 1976)

It is for our discussion on 09 July 2016. It is believed that students have watched the film on their own. Without watching the film, you can’t engage in a discussion.

In addition, you have a reading to help you understand the film better – though from a different perspective.
