Court says
Jul 31 - Aug 06
(Chaitanya Tamhane, India, DCP, 116 min)

Seattle premiere!

Director Chaitanya Tamhane makes the leap from a lauded stage career to the silver screen with this debut feature. Court won prizes at Venice and Mumbai, but notably, the Indian film board would only permit the release of a censored cut at home.

Court is a complex portrait of a country divided, visibly riven by caste and class differences that are accepted and perpetuated through behavior that is both intrinsically human and artificially imposed through the registers of postcolonialism. The characters themselves are both helpless witnesses and witless participants to the quiet, relentless injustices of their surroundings. This is a devastatingly accurate--and at times blackly humorous--depiction of equality and justice perishing from a thousand pinpricks.
