A documentary filmtitled “ Exploring the timelessness of indigenous realities as an inspiration for contemporary Architecture” is currently being filmed. The film, being directed by Architect & Film-maker Shaleen Sharma, takes an inspiration from the Essay entitled “The Discovery of Architecture – a contemporary treatise on ancient values & indigenous reality” was co-authored by Prof. M.N. AshishGanju& Prof. NarendraDengle.
The first statement in the essay is “Architecture is an ancient discipline, and the results of its thinking and endeavor provide us with some of the most lasting examples of our culture.” This is the starting point for thedocumentary, which intends to explore the various ideas which are embodied in our building traditions across India, dependent on and arising out of, diverse thought systems, local traditions and perennial human issues of life and death.
