Review: The Indian film, featured at the 2014 Syracuse International Film Festival, asks philosophical questions and presents beautifully orchestrated answers.
In ancient Greece, a ship became reason for much confusion. The Ship of Theseus, a thirty-oar structure, had been preserved for a long time. Then decay lead to a restoration process, where its old, sagging parts were replaced one by one.

Through A Lens Darkly, a documentary film given to us by director Thomas Allen Harris, kicked off the 12th annual Syracuse University Human Rights Film Festival on Thursday, Sept. 18.
