“Pursue Your Passion to Its Lair”
i’ve always admired arundhati roy, author of The God of Small Things. in the intervening ten years since that booker-winning novel, she’s written much more non-fiction. i guess the times and her passions dictated it. now it sounds like she’s working on a new novel. i can hardly wait!
in the meantime, an anonymous new zealand documentary filmmaker has made a 64-minute film that brings together her words, images of the global military-industrial complex, and other representations of power and powerlessness that roy critiques. it’s totally free (google stream here) and relies on word-of-mouth to get out there. so take a look already.
