Statement of Indraneel Kaul
Scriptwriter, Director and Producer
As I look back, fond memories flood my thoughts. I am reminded of the time when I started as an apperentice to my father (Shri Arun Kaul) and my elder brother (Shri Neelaabh Kaul) for Turning Point. That was in 1991.
A rank amateur at the age of 18, I started learning and contemplating, putting my ideas and thoughts, dreams and ambitions into this programme. Never did I imagine that my efforts would fructify into an Invitation to this Festival.
What I learnt from my peers and elders (my father, brother and uncle are all film-makers), from mistakes and mess-ups, I bring to you in the shape of this programme.
When I directed my first story in 1993, I was rudely brought down to earth from the cloud I had been on. It was perhaps a blessing in disguise. The humbling experience taught me that the process of learnning is unending, that you never know too much.
The present series was important to me - not just because I was handling it without any interference (you have to know my father to realise the tremendous influence he is capable of exerting and so, the amount of liberty I could extract from him was perhaps the greatest boost I could get), but also because after the drubbing received in '93, Turning Point to me was a search for my identity.
The journey continues in Kashmir File - another field, another type of work, another world, which took me back to my roots, to the land of my father and forefathers. But I tried to go much beyond their age, to the pre-history of Kashmir - the two snow ages, megalithic and neolithic eras and the archaeological excavations, from Burzahom to Manda to Semthan...
And where do I go from here?
Statement of Neelaabh Kaul
Director-Cameraman and Scriptwriter
When I passed out of the Film Institute in 1987, I thought I knew everything. I aspired to be the best Cinematographer and hoped to dazzle people with my work.
Today I realise, I am still a beginner both in Cinematography and in music (my first love!). May be a few years later I will have a few things to say. But as of now, I am happy brooding over my half baked opinions, statements and theories.
