Rex Dixon is an abstract painter and Mungal Patasar is a musician. Both men are highly regarded in their fields, and have received many accolades for their work. In this intriguing film, Dixon and Patesar come together in conversation and find striking similarities in their respective creative processes. The Trinidadian landscape provides a canvas and sounding board for their explorations of colour and tonality, and explodes on the screen as a marriage between intuitive and experimental ways of working.
Featuring original paintings by Dixon and music by Patasar created for and on camera,Seventeen Colours and a Sitar invites the viewer to trust their own eyes and ears, as these artists do, in exploring the worlds of art and music.
