To me style is just the outside of content, and content the inside of style, like the outside and the inside of the human body. Both go together, they can’t be separated. – Jean-Luc Godard
Akam – the inside, the internal, the domestic space
Puram – the outside, the external, the public sphere
- AkamPuram makes films that explore the world within and world without, and the dialectical relationship between the two that constitutes life.
- AkamPuram engages with the nuanced relationship between the real and the image, between word and action, between the present and the potential.
- AkamPuram experiments with cutting edge ideas and cinematic language to challenge and stimulate, provoke and move its audience.
The two mutually defining terms akam and puram,
borrowed from ancient Tamizh poetics,
represents for me the mindscape and landscape of humanity: GJ
