About the Artist
Jagannathan Krishnan is a medium agnostic artist who works with film, art, podcasting, games, calendars and comics. He loves sharing thought with and partnering with practitioners from different disciplines. He is in the midst of several creative collaborations and also does independent consultancy for projects in the making. He is currently shooting a film, “ The Ism to end all isms”, a fiction documentary hybrid that is cerebral, silly and fun.He is also in the midst of gathering resources for his next film. Which could either be a comic fantasy set in a mythology of the future or a farcical comedy about the funniest joke in the world. He is also working on a comic book where his narcissistic avatar Swagannathan and a couple of his friends go on a Meta tour of the internet. He likes to teach and has learnt much from his students. He has finally gotten rid of the awkwardness that comes from referring to himself in the third person.
About the film
Cinema can help you better your life. Film stars can give you moral and spiritual messages that can uplift you. Sagai believes this. Sagai is a film buff who grew up watching films in an illegal video parlor in a Mumbaihood. When he came of age he started working in the same place, as did his father before him. In a charming, eloquent and often politically incorrect street speak, he shares the story of his theater alongside his trip with life & films.
