The Indo-Italian documentary film ”SAMA: Symbols and Gestures in Contemporary Art from Italy and India, VOL I” will be screened here on December 9th.

Filmmaker Onir and Italian director Alessandra Galletta co-directed the documentary film which explores the world of contemporary art in India and Italy.

The film will have a red carpet preview for guests on the grounds of the Italian Embassy on December 9, a press release said.

Curated by Myna Mukherjee and Davide Quadrio, the documentary provides insight into the aesthetics of the two regions.

”SAMA: Symbols and Gestures in Contemporary Art from Italy and India, VOL I” is commissioned and produced by ArtHub Asia, Engendered, presented by the Italian Embassy in India and the Italian Cultural Institute of New Delhi and supported by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations. Shot in more than a dozen locations and featuring more than 50 artist studios and craft centers, the film spans the two countries nomadically: from the white salt deserts of the Rann to the waterways of the Sundarbans and Dal Lake in India, the mountains of the Dolomites to the historicity of Venice in Italy.

The second volume of the documentary is due out in early 2022.

Onir is best known for directing critically acclaimed films like ”My Brother…Nikhil” and ”I Am”.
