Incantation

Movie • 2021  

Report
A serendipitous encounter one winter in New York, with reels of 16mm film shot in Delhi, India in 1952. Dislocations in time and space, an incantation to liminal spaces of freedom and belonging. The film reels were salvaged from an antique store in Owego, NY by video artist and engineer, Dave Jones, who collaborated with Subramanian on analog video experiments with the footage

The child becomes sick from a curse. There is a point in the movie where the mother is not allowed to feed her child for 7 days. She ends up giving the child a small piece of food but gets her to throw it up after.

Not sure what would be defined as excessive. Heads get smashed, entrails are shown, a bloody rash of little holes covers characters’ bodies, a woman scratches at the back of her head to the point of ripping off chunks of flesh and hair.

The daughter appears to have wet herself when she’s in the bed for the seven days of no food. They don’t address it so it’s possible she’s supposed to have sweated through her clothes, but it looks like bed wetting.

Once (audio/visual) when Ronan gets out of the car to look at what they hit. Again (audio/visual) when she's going up the slope to the tunnel in the village. A final time (audio and visual of toilet afterwards) when she discovers the boils on Dodo's back.

SPOILER - A character who is not mentally ill, but is perceived to be having a psychotic break by other characters is implied to have planned to use her daughter as a human sacrifice. The same character also intentionally spreads a harmful curse to others to protect herself and her daughter.
