Descripción

Contents: Mihir Bhattacharya: Foreword. Acknowledgements. Preface. Introduction. 1. The Performing arts before the birth of Assamese Cinema. 2. The Advent of Popular Culture: Theatre and Cinema. 3. Jyotiprasad Agarwala. 4. The Making of Joymoti. 5. Responses to Joymoti. 6. Seventy Five Years of Assamese Cinema after Joymoti. 7. Journey down the Line: Conversations. Bibliography. In the year 1931, when the first Indian sound film Alam Ara was being made, a young man Jyotiprasad Agarwala (1903-1951) contemplated making the first Assamese film. Such a thought required the capacity and grit to dream big and bring Assam on the map of the history of India as well as world cinema. Exploring the inception of Assamese cinema and its progress up to present times in the context of the state's history and culture, Bobbeeta Sharma brings to light doyens of Assamese literature such as Lakshminath Bezbarua (1868-1938) and journals like Orunodoi that tried, for the first time, to forge a sense of cultural identity for the people of Assam. The book includes rare photographs, newspaper articles, and interviews to take into its purview the political history of the region and the socio-cultural milieu within which the first Assamese film Joymoti was made. Providing interesting insights into the thought and philosophy of Jyotiprasad Agarwala, the pioneer of Assamese cinema, The Moving Image and Assamese Culture is an engaging revelation of 75 years of film as a vehicle for self-identity and cultural assertion in this vibrant north-eastern state.

Sinopsis:

Most studies on Indian cinema focus on Bollywood, largely ignoring regional cinema in India which has a long tradition; Assamese cinema, for example, dates to 1935. Exploring the inception of Assamese cinema in the context of Assam's history and culture and its progress up to present times, this book brings to light the doyens of Assamese literature like Lakshminath Bezbarua (1868-1938) and journals such as Orunodoi who/which tried, for the first time, to give the Assamese people a sense of identity. Including rare photographs, newspaper articles, and interviews, the work takes into its purview the political history of the region and the socio-cultural milieu within which the first Assamese film Joymoti was made, providing interesting insights into the thought and philosophy of Jyotiprasad Aggarwala (1903-1951), the pioneer of Assamese cinema.
