Udupi, 22 May 2024: While Artificial Intelligence raises ethical questions in film industry, films also need to become more sensitive in portraying Women and violence, said award winning film maker Abhaya Simha. Holding a special session on Film aesthetics beyond curriculum under the auspices of Gandhian centre for Philosophical Arts and Sciences (GCPAS), MAHE. Abhaya Simha said film artists in a large number may lose jobs due to Artificial Intelligence which raises ethical questions. One needs to make ’ethical use’ of Artificial Intelligence in film industry, he felt.


Mr Abhaya Simha, basically from Mangalore now settled in Bangalore, is a graduate from Pune Film Institute. Apart from many documentaries, he has made four feature films including award winning Tulu film ’Paddayi’ based on Shakespeare’s Macbeth.



Film is an experiential visual medium with multiple possibilities of meaning. New technology affects its aesthetics and experience. It is a challenge for film makers to make meaningful cinema holding on to ethical parameters. There could be different ways of showing violence. It is necessary that mainstream cinema should become more sensitive to Women gender matters, he opined, quoting examples from cinema.


Screening his Tulu film ’Paddayi’, Abhaya Simha explained how he has tried to interpret Shakespeare’s Macbeth from his perspective. ’ It was a great experience to recreate and redefine Shakespeare in our own context’, he felt.


Participating in the discussion GCPAS Head, Prof. Varadesh Hiregange said Abhaya Simha has richly captured regional details to narrate a universal story and film is rich with semiotic details. Writers Prof Muraleedhara Upadya, Prof Phaniraj, actress-dancer Manasi Sudheer of Kantara fame and students participated in the discussion. Ms Saghar Ada moderated the programme.
