Ann Arbor Film Festival presents From Gulf to Gulf to Gulf
Comprising over four years of footage, From Gulf to Gulf to Gulf (83 min, 2013, video) is the result of a collaboration between the Indian art collective CAMP and a group of sailors from the Kutch district in western India. A modern adventure on the high seas (captured with cell phone cameras and set to a soundtrack of old and new Bollywood, Pakistani, and local religious songs chosen by the sailors), the film captures workaday life and lazy hours as the sailors ferry everything from electronics to livestock from the Persian Gulf to the Gulf of Aden to the Somali coast and back again.
"The film is beautiful and buoyant and engrossing in big picture and small detail ways." -The New York Times
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the artists.
Screening of From Gulf to Gulf to Gulf presented by the 52nd Ann Arbor Film Festival in partnership with the Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design's Witt Artist in Residence Program at the University of Michigan, the Art Gallery of Windsor, and the University of Michigan Museum of Art.
