Biographical film, 2014. 

ABOUT THE FILM
The Last Adieu
90min/2014/with English Subtitles

The Last Adieu is a personal quest of a filmmaker daughter to unravel the past and make a connection with her
filmmaker father, S. Sukhdev, who died suddenly at the age of 46, leaving behind a huge body of work and an
unresolved relationship with his daughter.

While he was an accomplished filmmaker in the public eye, his family had another story to tell. With the help
of archival audio recordings, old photographs and Sukhdev’s films, Shabnam endeavours to construct a
picture of her father as she struggles to love and respect him for who he was.
The film is an important record of a phase in documentary history that inspired and paved the way for the new
wave in non-fiction narratives, and pays homage to S. Sukhdev, an important filmmaker who
revolutionized Documentary filmmaking in India in the mid 60’s, right through the 70’s.

Producer — Films Division
Direction — Shabnam Sukhdev
Editing — Jabeen Merchant
Sound Design and Sound Mixing — Mohandas VP
Camera — Ashwin Shuklala

'Tyranny of distance / Tyranny of proximity' by Ateya Khorakiwala, at "THE fd ZONE" on 2nd August 2014 <at> Films Division, Mumbai

WELCOME TO THE 103rd EDITION OF "THE fd ZONE" !

'Tyranny of distance / Tyranny of proximity' screening 
& presentation by Ateya Khorakiwala


Tyranny of distance / Tyranny of proximity
Ateya Khorakiwala

This talk accompanies three newsreels from the 1960s that document and narrate road building in the northern borders of India. Roads are never simply roads. Road infrastructure functions through dissemblance, concealed in the materiality of the road, is another function, one that is not so obvious, a claim to territory, a strategic alliance, a normalizing function. Consequently, the road operates as a site of many simultaneous meanings. The material connectivity provided by the road alters the geography and politics of the places it connects, bringing with it the spoils of modernity, not the least of which is the camera itself. In this talk today I will look at how these three films on road building in Bhutan, Leh, and on borders construct a narrative of a concrete modernity using motifs of technology and nature to discuss what happens when the tyranny of distance is replaced by the tyranny of proximity. 

Ateya Khorakiwala will be in conversation with George Jose after her presentation and the screenings of the films.

Ateya Khorakiwala is a PhD candidate at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, where she is researching her dissertation entitled, The Well Fed Subject: Modern Architecture in the Quantitative State. Her work looks at how the fixation on creating stable food-supply systems in India in the 50s and 60s led to a biopolitical revolution to augment food production; she studies the infrastructure and architecture that allowed the system to proliferate. She holds a BArch from KRVIA, Mumbai, and an MSc in Architecture Studies from the History, Theory, and Criticism of Architecture and Art program at MIT.

George Jose is a Joint PhD candidate at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and King's College London studying popular resistance to the city in the periphery of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. 

PROGRAMME:

Road to Leh
Dir. Gopal Dutt
11mins

Synopsis: This film looks at the construction of the road to Leh in the context of the Pakistani assault on the border. Infrastructure becomes the target where connectivity brings with it consumption, security, national identity, and modernity.

Bhutan Road
Dir. Shanti Varma
11 mins
Synopsis: This film looks at the construction of a road connecting India to Bhutan. The footage of construction work is intercut with a semi-fictional story of Bhutanese villager Panjo who both constructs the road and is transformed by it.

Border Roads 
Dir. PB Pendharkar 
10 mins

Synopsis: This film documents the difficulty and importance of building roads in the mountainous border regions of India, using the trope of man versus nature to foreground the civilizing function of the road.

Himalayan Lifeline
Dir: Shanti Varma 
1966,11 min

Date and time:
2nd August 2014, 4 pm

Venue:
RR II Theater
6th floor
Phase II Building
Films Division
Pedder Road
Mumbai

About the presentation

 

The talk is a scan of the 20 odd years of Maya Rao's theatre journey with a focus on how theme and medium informed each other in the process of performance making. The talk will include video clips, description, analysis and reflection on what it meant for a solo woman theatre artist to collaborate with sound and video designers in creating performances of different genres – Dance – theatre, Socio-political cabaret, Comedy and educational theatre. This will be followed by a performance titled “Walk” which has been prepared in response to the brutal gang rape and subsequent death of Jyoti Pande.  


About Maya Krishna Rao

Maya Krishna Rao is a professor at the Department of Arts, Design and Theatre at the Shiv Nadar University where she is currently designing an Applied Theatre graduate programme, slated to start in 2015. She creates her own performances, sometimes solo, at other times, collaboratively with sound, space designers and film makers. She engages school children and teachers in the use of drama as a teaching device in the classroom. Maya also performs stand up comedy. Amongst her shows that have travelled to different countries and have been received with acclaim are “Khol Do”, “The Job”, “A Deeper Fried Jam”, “Heads Are Meant For Walking Into”, “The Non-Stop Feel Good Show”, “Ravanama”, and her latest, “Walk”, made in response to the horrific gangrape and subsequent death of Jyoti Pande.

In 2006, Maya was invited by the NCERT to be a member of a 3 person committee to create a drama syllabus for Class 1 -12. She has been the subject  of a Doordarshan documentary titled, “Portrait of Maya Krishna Rao” (1997). She was also featured in a NBT publication, “Women Who Dared” (2002) , edited by Ritu Menon, as one of twenty notable living Indian Women.

HD Stock footage required.



Hello everyone!


Need HD stock footage for an independently produced documentary on high altitude mountaineering and the risks associated with it. The footage has to be in HD and should be copyright free for independent use and broadcast in the SAARC region. Though I have contacted news agencies who have some of the footage required, the issue is of a prohibitive cost. 


I would be grateful if any person(s) who have any of the below mentioned footage are willing to share without an exclusive license arrangement and at a cost that doesn't damage the bank account! It would help even if I can be pointed in the right direction.


Below-menioned is the list of footage.


1. Mallory and Irwine's 1924 expedition to scale Everest through the south ridge route.

2. 1952 Swiss expedition led by Edouard Wyss-Durant’s and his article on the "Death Zone" on Everest

3. 1953 British Hunt-Lowe-Hillary-Norgay expedition, BBC I/V after first summit of Everest.

4. Infamous 1996 Everest commercial expedition in which Fischer and Hall died.

5. Infamous 2006 expedition in which David Sharpe lay dying in the death zone as climbers passed him by.

6. Any footage related to Trigonometric survey of India which mapped the Himalayas

7. World War I footage, India in the 1920s.

8. Footage related to Edward Norton and Harold Somervell Everest expedition ( 8572 m on

Everest without Oxygen).

9. Tenzing Norgay’s childhood photographs and video collection, if any

10. 1933 – Lawrence Wager and Peter Wyn-Harris expedition to Everest.

11. Messener and Habler's historic Everest summit in 1978 without Oxygen

12. 2014 incident footage on Everest in which sherpas died because of an avalanche

13. Footage of mountaineers suffering from High Altitude Pulmonary and Cerebral Edema.

14. 2012 Incidents atop the death zone on Everest in which Sherya Shah and four others died on Everest.

15. Any HD documentary footage that showcases the lives of Sherpas in Nepal with I/Vs and case studies.
