Marguerite Duras’ India Song is a dreamy evocation of delirium and obsessive desire 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.
Written by Marguerite Duras
