Take Time Posted on 2/20/2018 12:00:00 AM in What We’re Watching Share this article: A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film: Filmmaker Nihal Anand spent five days in Kerala on the Malabar Coast and what he captures with his wide lens camera is not something you normally associate with India: an idyllic and contemplative side. Cloud-covered tea plantations dot the lush hills of Munnar. A houseboat languidly floats along the backwaters between Kochi and Kollam. An actor prepares for a performance of Kathakali. Wild mountain deer graze in the Kerala forest. What a visual reminder that there’s as much to explore in stillness as there is in movement. Take a deep breath and enjoy.
