20th Edition of FD Zone Delhi

Time: Thursday, July 9at 7:00pm 

Venue: Gulmohar Hall, India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi

In the 20th edition of FD Zone Delhi, we bring you 'The Inner Eye', directed by Satyajit Ray and 'Katha Loknath' [Retold by Loknath], directed by Rajula Shah. 

'The Inner Eye' is Satyajit Ray’s tribute to his old teacher at Shantiniketan and one of the masters of Indian modern art, Benode Behari Mukherjee. The film is an intimate exploration of the artist and his work, the inner eye of the artist who transcends his physical condition of blindness in the creation of his art. 'Katha Loknath', in the director’s own words, is a film “about a child being told a story, of going to the genesis of creation and exploring the mystery of creation.” The film poses a question about whether a story can ever be complete. When a story simultaneously inhabits the present and the past, when it moves between history and ahistoricity, mythology and poetry, the story pushes itself outside of time and space, the film turns into a reflection on the idea of story-telling itself. 

What runs through both these films is the process of artistic creation and its intangibility, that what we see or hear in the form of a painting or a story may sometimes have its origins in places that cannot be easily grasped – the inner vision of Benode Behari Mukherjee, the timelessness of Loknath’s story.

The Inner Eye /B&W/1972/English/21 min
Dir. Satyajit Ray

At the age of 54, Benode Behari Mukherjee, an accomplished painter, lost his sight following an unsuccessful cataract operation. He continued to create art despite his loss of sight. The documentary explores Benode Behari Mukherjee’s inner eye that guides his fingers to create art.

[Script & Commentary Satyajit Ray Photography Soumendu Roy Editor Dulal Dutta Produced by Films Division]

Katha Loknath/Colour/2012/44 min
Dir. Rajula Shah

Amidst everyday human, electronic chatter and traffic noise, a child dreams up the universe. In flashes of lightning, a specter unfolds; the mother's voice beckons the unborn to the world. Amidst rolling thunder, it wakes up to myriad tellings of the same tale. One day we will go to Sonpur- Mother tells the child.

The World gets populated. Space is re-consecrated. Time is eternally confused. Illusive historic truth, absurd evidences that spare none, eternally haunt Time until given a place in the story. On the banks of Mahanadi, lives a potter named Loknath. He knows many stories. It begins from before the world was made and goes on till ever after. Nobody knows the whole story. Parts of stories lie hidden in the rubble and ruin of history. None knows where it begins, nor where it ends. And yet it is not as much of a misfortune to not know this, as it is to wonder if there be a story at all.

Loknath enters the landscape of his own telling and becomes Rudrapal; the mythical river whirls into the real river of Loknath's daily bath; the unborn child wakes up to the ancient tales resonating in the womb of a city; the monkey god seeks an adventure to the city fair; stories curl up like caterpillars on the museum plate while the child grows out of a story and into another. Perhaps it is possible to look at the blanks in History as the lapse each story fills, in the language of its myth and transformations. One wonders what a 'fiction' has to do with its 'documentary evidence'. How does one look for the 'timeless' in the 'historical'?

In front of the digital camera, everything that we have known till now as epical, fictional, documentary, poetic, magical and so on, assumes its assigned role in the story of a Loknath. An ancient story tied to its tail, the god with the feet of clay stalks the decrepit age of the museum. An eternity passes. The story gathers moss. The child asks for another story.

Vikalp <at> TISS Screening of THE FACTORY, Mumbai

THE FACTORY | Rahul Roy | 132 mins | 2015

147 workers of India’s biggest automobile manufacturing company Maruti Suzuki are on trial for the murder of a senior manager and 2500 workers dismissed. It has been two and a half years and the case drags on. Their bail application has been rejected by the courts. On each hearing they are led to the court room by the police while families line up to catch a glimpse. The defence lawyers plan their strategy in the court canteen. Justice seems a dim hope. The film follows the fate of the under trial workers, families and dismissed workers to investigate the underbelly of industrial conflict and the elusive nature of justice.

Rahul Roy graduated from the Mass Communication Research Centre at Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi in 1987 with a post graduate degree in film making. His films have travelled across the globe to various documentary film festivals and have won several prestigious awards. Rahul Roy’s films explore the themes of masculinity and gender relations against the larger background of communalism, labour, class identities and urban spaces. His work has focused primarily on masculinities. Besides film making he has been researching and writing on masculinities. His graphic book on masculinities titled ‘A Little Book on Men’ was recently published by Yoda Press. Roy is the Director of Aakar, a Delhi based trust that works in the area of media, culture and research. Aakar has been engaged in several interventions on masculinities across the South Asian region for more than a decade now.

Screening of Two Films on Education | Presented by Vikalp <at> Prithvi, Mumbai

On Friday, July 31, Vikalp <at> Prithvi presents two films on education followed by a Q&A session with the director.

'Schooling the World: The White Man's Last Burden' directed by Carol Black takes a look at the role played by modern education in the destruction of the world’s last sustainable indigenous cultures. Beautifully shot on location in the Buddhist culture of Ladakh in the northern Indian Himalayas, the film examines the hidden assumption of cultural superiority behind education aid projects, which overtly aim to help children “escape” to a “better life.”

--

'Mala Bi Shalela Yeu Dya Ki'! ( 'Let Me Also Come To School') directed by Simantini Dhuru was made a decade before the Indian Parliament enacted the ‘Children’s Right to Free and Compulsory Education Act’ in 2009. The film attempts to examine the status of formal education in parts of rural Maharashtra, in remote tribal areas as well as in the metropolis of Mumbai and draws linkages between education, social justice and democracy. 

Screening Details:

Friday, 31st July, 7 pm

At Prithvi House, Opposite Prithvi Theatre, Janki Kutir, Juhu Church Road, Juhu, Bombay

Entry Free | Registrations are not required but we encourage RSVPs.

Movies at the Museum | A Man Vanishes by Shohei Imamura, Mumbai

Time: Friday, July 10at 6:00pm - 8:30pm 

Venue: Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum,Veer Mata Jijabai Udyan,91/A Dr. Ambedkar Road, Byculla (E),Mumbai 400 027

About the Movie
‘A Man Vanishes’ is Shohei Imamura’s subversive film from 1967 that blurs the line between fact and fiction, between truth and falsehood. The film begins in a relatively conventional way- with the filmmaker attempting to find what has happened to Tadashi, a man who has suddenly disappeared into thin air. Through a series of interviews with the man’s family and employers, Imamura seems to be trying, like an investigative journalist to piece together the puzzle, when suddenly things begin to get complicated. The sense of stability of the truth is fragmented as contradictions and uncertainties increase, implicating the purported ‘subject’ of the film, the filmmaker and his position; and us- the viewers and our gaze in a game of mirrors where myth and reality intermingle
About the Director
Shohei Imamura was one of the seminal figure of the New Wave movement in Japanese Cinema. He has directed numerous fiction and non-fiction films. His films are known for their bawdy sensuality as against the serene classicism of Japanese masters like Yasujiro Ozu, whom Imamura worked with in the early years of his career.
About the Speaker
Madhusree Dutta, is a filmmaker; also a curator, pedagogue, researcher, producer and activist. Though visual culture is the key to her works, multi-disciplinary initiatives and multi-layered representations frame her myriad engagements. Filmmaking, theatre, visual arts, literature, media products; students’ movement, feminist movement, movement against communalism, movement for democratisation of art practices; cultural literacy, art pedagogy, interfaces between genres, movements and disciplines form the path of Madhusree’s personal journey. Madhushree is the founder and executive director of Majlis, a centre for rights discourse and multicultural art initiatives in Mumbai, India

New Flyer file on new book - shoma a chatterji [1 Attachment]

Dear Friends,

Here is a better flyer on the details of my book FILMING REALITY which you might like to go through. 

Please do not mistake this for a marketing strategy. This is just for your information to let you know that as a critic, though the press does not offer me a platform to write extensively on documentary films, it also opened up the world to write this book.

Warmly,

shoma a chatterji

News about my new book - SHOMA A CHATTERJI

Dear all my friends on docuwallahs2. I am sending you all a link to my new book available online on the SAGE website. The book is called FILMING REALITY and scans the independent documentary movement in India post-1970s to the present times. The book is entirely from the point of a film critic who has been following the movement for the past 40 years and I have dedicated the book to every single independent documentary filmmaker.

It is not necessary for you to buy the book as it is quite expensive like most SAGE publications. But I hope this makes many of you happy. Many important documentary filmmakers have been left out for the reason that I could not watch their films.

Kindly go through the link to get to the flyer and you can e ven scroll through the contents.

Warmly and hoping for the best,

shoma a chatterji
