Associate professor of the practice Shambhavi Kaul’s film, Slow Shift, will have its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). The 48th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival takes place Thursday, September 7-17, 2023.
Slow Shift is a rich reflection on the intersections between myth and reality, as Kaul trains her camera on a World Heritage Site overrun by langurs in Hampi, India, revealing an uncanny co-existence between past and present.
Kaul’s film will be part of the TIFF Wavelengths program. Wavelengths welcomes both luminaries and emerging talents spotlighting rule breakers, film essayists, and different ways of seeing the world, with new films by Radu Jude, Isiah Medina, Eduardo Williams, Angela Schanelec, Rosine Mbakam, Wang Bing, Chantal Akerman, Pedro Costa, Jean-Luc Goddard, Ja’Tovia Gary, Steve Reinke, Shambhavi Kaul, and more.
