Laurent Bregeat

The French filmmaker Laurent Bregeat spent several months stalking great Indian painters -Akbar Padamsee, M F Husain, Ram Kumar and S H Raza. He talked to them about their work and their lives – and as a result we have some really profound insights into the work of these artists. He shot the films with the intention of making archives for future generations. These were part of a series of Living Legends of Indian Contemporary Art that was commissioned by the Lalit Kala Akademi.

Apart from these artist documentaries, he is an assistant and director, known for ‘The Da Vince Code’ (2006), ‘A View to Kill’ (1985) and ‘The Messenger’ (1999).

He lives and works in Paris.
