In celebration of the 100th anniversary of birth of Indian filmmaking, the Ackland Film Forum is screening Harishchandrachi Factory, a fictional depiction of the making of Raja Harishchandra, India’s first feature film, in 1913. In telling the story of the director’s struggles with making the first Indian film, Harishchandrachi Factory employs many of the same cinematic techniques that were used for the first film, including a fixed camera angles and shaky, experimental zooming in certain shots.
