Rising to international prominence in the early 1980s, Raúl Ruiz has proved one of the most exciting and innovative filmmakers of recent years, providing more intellectual fun and artistic experimentation, shot for shot, than any filmmaker since Jean-Luc Godard. Slashing his way through celluloid with machete-sharp sounds and images, Ruiz is a guerrilla who uncompromisingly assaults the preconceptions of film art. This frightfully prolific figure–he has made over 50 films in twenty years–does not adhere to any one style of filmmaking. He has worked in 35mm, 16mm and video, for theatrical release and for European TV, and on documentary and fiction features.

Mani Kaul (1944-2011) was undoubtedly the Indian filmmaker who succeeded in radically overhauling the relationship of image to form, of speech to narrative, with the objective of creating a 'purely cinematic object' that is above all visual and formal. Mani joined the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune initially as an acting student but then switched over to the direction course at the institute. Mani's first film Uski Roti (1969) was one of the key films of the 'New Indian Cinema' or the Indian New Wave. Kaul followed Uski Roti with Asad ka Ek Din (1971). Duvidha (1973), Kaul's third film, was also his first in colour.
