Bangalore International Centre had arranged the screening of the film “A Picture of You” by Mr. Ajay Noronha on Friday, 8th February, 2013 at 6:30 pm. Mr. Noronha was present to interact with the audience after the screening.
A Picture of You is a cinematographer's journey to piece together an image of his father who passed away when he was six. Growing up with one framed photograph on the wall and little else, Ajay Noronha sifts through memories, anecdotes and silences to come closer to the person he hardly knew.
It is a story of a middle-class Goan Catholic family that moves from Nagpur, a town in Central India to the bustling megapolis of Bombay in the late 1960’s. From the safe cocoon of a joint-family ancestral home to the insecurities of rented one-room tenements in the city.
It was a touching and sensitive film, enjoyed by the audience.
