Gaston Roberge, proposes a militant programme . . . for another cinema committed to the building up of another society. He offers revaluations of the established systems of film aesthetics with fresh insights into the thoughts and works of Eisenstein, Bazin, Welles and Ray; before analysing the Indian social scene in depth and detail, to suggest a comprehensive model for a parallel Indian cinema, complete with a new scheme for film and media education for the new cinema.
Gaston Roberge teaches Mass Communication and Film Studies at St Xavier’s College, Calcutta. He has written more than 15 books including Communication Cinema Development which received the National Award at the 46th International Film Festival of India 1998.
