  • Kenji's rating of the film The Mind of Clay

    A 90 minute film about Indian clay pots and figures with a colour palette of mainly grey, brown and cream may not sound very exciting. But set time aside for quiet contemplation, and the shadows, elegant gliding camera and mix of sounds, thoughts and verses may seep into your soul for a deeply rewarding experience.
