The Screen Guide

This intimate and groundbreaking study of India's most prestigious boys' boarding school is the work of renowned ethnographic filmmaker, David MacDougall. In this original and beautifully photographed film, MacDougall examines not only the life of the boys in the school and the culture associated with that life; he also inquires into the school's 'social aesthetics', the qualities of place, material objects and social interaction that provide a distinctive backdrop for the everyday life of this community. Shot over a two-year period, the film explores the social aesthetics and ideology of the school through its rituals, the physical environment it has created and its effects upon several boys of different ages and temperaments.
