Taking an experimental approach to the relationship between the written text and moving image, Mani Kaul, the director of Rising from the Surface, has a series of texts read aloud in voice-overs (poetry, essays, and stories), while the characters within the texts walk through real or imaginary landscapes, and sometimes also have lines to say. The film is more focused on text and literature than a visually told story, and obviously has no plot development.
