Adoor Gopalakrishnan’s films map the history of the region from the inside, for all his films are autobiographical in a way and are about different aspects of Kerala society and life. This documentary makes an attempt to look at how the filmmaker dealt with human conditions at the most elemental level, their keen observation and intense sensibility about the ‘local’ that makes his films universal in appeal. Adoor Gopalakrishnan’s powerful narratives about dislocation, primarily on men and women who have been physically and psychically displaced from mainstream society. Their search for self, identity, home, and freedom becomes a major concern in these films.
