Ramkhind ★★

I haven't seen anything else from Amit Dutta but this wasn't a great introduction.

Films made in the early 2000s feel strange to look at critically due to the rise in accessibility to digital cameras that also look like absolute garbage. And the approach to documentary filmmaking in this film is that of the observer for the most part. While interview or talking heads like segments happen in the film the primary focus of the camera direction is to observe the culture of the Warli village. If you combine the observer style of documentary filmmaking with the limitations of early digital cameras, you get Home Video Cinema, which has never had much appeal to me. But I know that others do heavily enjoy the style and would probably enjoy this film. And I'd be willing to seek out another film by Dutta. But this didn't impress me.
