Director’s Note:

I always believed that a sensitive director always converts impersonal technology into a personal idiom which expresses his world vision, philosophy of life and politics. When Films Division commissioned me to do a film on Adoor Gopalakrishnan, I decided that my approach should high light the idiom of Adoor  and understand the philosophy in his austere, minimalist style. The result is this film Images/Reflections –a journey into the imagery of Adoor Gopalakrishnan. Here what we see is Adoor’s images and my reflections.

Even from my student days at FTII, Pune, I cherished reading Film makers on Film making series. Here the film maker talks about his film grammar, its politics, how it gets conceptualized in each of his films etc. This approach helps one understand his films not in its exclusivity but to understand the concerns of the film maker as it is expressed through his oeuvre. I have tried to do that in this film.
