Marguerite Duras’ India Song is a dreamy evocation of obsessive desire and delirium set in a fictional Calcutta. Music, images and text intersect in “… a place of forgetting, of faltering memory. Memories that distort. That create. Like any other love story.” (Duras)
An impossible play that became a remarkable film.
