The first day began with a talk by visual artistTacita Dean titled Process And The Non-Deliberate Act: Why The Medium Of Film Is Important To Artists. The person behind bringing Nolan to India is Filmmaker-archivist Shivendra Singh Dungarpur who hopes to draw attention to his cause - film preservation and restoration - with Nolan’s visit to India.
Shivendra said in an interview to PTI, “We have got support for a cause which we have been fighting alone. It is fantastic. There was hardly any support from the film industry and people in India. And suddenly you get support from two internationally world-renowned artistes (Nolan and celebrated visual artist Tacita Dean). We want that they (industry people) should be awakened. They should realise that people from across the world are realising things and supporting us, so why not support here.”
