At the International Film Festival Rotterdam the discovery of many great films, such as No by Pablo Larrain (2012) - how Pinochet's regime ended because of a media campaign. Shot on U-Matic that blends fiction with the archival material seemlessly. And the beautiful How to Describe a Cloud by David Verbeek (2012). And also very strong and intelligent Anand Gandhi's first feature Ship of Theseus (2012). The complexities of globalized biopolitics "as good as it gets".   And here for a wonderful interview with Gandhi by Ekta Kapoor for News Laundry.
