Adoor: Cinema is the most scientific art
Cinema is the most scientific art and the most potent of all arts to reach out to people, said Adoor Gopalakrishnan, film maker.
Presenting awards to the best scientific films at the 98th Indian Science Congress at SRM University, he said he could not think of cinema without physics and chemistry.
While artistic imagination was shown in films, science achieved whatever artists imagined. Intricate and complex issues could be demonstrated effectively through films which could get close to an element or fact however evasive.
Cinema was the closest to reality in terms of reproduction. Deep understanding of the subject and effective handling of the medium was necessary to reach out to people. “There is no better way to reach out to the audience than films,” he said.
