film from India. Prayoga is a Sanskrit word, which loosely translates
as 'experiment', but can also mean 'representation'. Over the last
three years, no.w.here has reseached a rich vein of visual arts-based
work from the early twentieth century onwards that, despite the huge
popularity of Indian cinema, remains relatively unknown. This project

outside the popular Bollywood films for which India is traditionally
known. This volume traces a history of powerful and personal filmmaking
outside of the industrialised system.
