Mf Husain, on the invitation of Jehan Bhownagry made an experimental film for Films Division in the 20th year of India’s independence. He visited Rajasthan and filmed landscapes, faces, architecture and water. Everywhere he sought abstraction. His recurring motifs were a lantern, an umbrella, a cow and a shoe, that appear in the most unexpected of places. In the midst of all this are Husain’s iconic images of the Indian peasant – a man and a woman, united by Vijay Raghav Rao’s sound design.
