This feature documentary explores the story behind Mumbai’s first contemporary art gallery.

Kekoo Gandhy, cast adrift from his studies at Cambridge by the war, was sitting on Juhu beach in 1941 wondering what to do with his life. He saw a man in a car stuck in the sand and decided to help. Thus began a journey that transformed not only his own life but the artistic heritage of the city of Bombay.

Kekee Manzil: House of Art is a feature documentary that interweaves personal testimony with rare historical archives to tell the story of how a modern art movement was born in India. Accompanied by a haunting soundtrack specially composed by Talvin Singh.
