Ritwik Ghatak’s last film Jukti, Takkoaar Gappo (Reason, Debate and a Story, 1974), which tells the story of an intellectual caught in the turmoil of 1970s Bengal, is re-scripted. With images, texts and voices spectrally connecting moments from history with current flows of a city, viewers dive into the recesses of what the film’s protagonist calls ‘life for the living’; journey with a consciousness embedded in a ‘burning universe’.
