Algorithms, a sports documentary about India’s small-numbered, yet blossoming blind chess players


http://qz.com/297416/liars-dice-isnt-the-only-indian-film-that-has-a-chance-at-the-oscars-this-year/

Liar’s Dice isn’t the only Indian film that has a chance at the Oscars this year

The film was shot in color, though completed in black and white.(AkamPuram)
SHARE




November 18, 2014

It’s a long way to go for the 84th Academy Awards—which will be held on Feb. 22—but the race is officially on.

This year, while Malayalam actress and director Geethu Mohandas’s Liar’s Dice is India’s official entry into the best foreign language category, there’s another Indian film being considered for an Oscar nomination.

Algorithms, a sports documentary about India’s small-numbered, yet blossoming blind chess players, is the only Indian production out of the 134 documentaries in the Academy Awards’ qualifying round. Filmed under an independent production banner AkamPuram, the 100-minute film showcases the tribulations of three young visually impaired chess players–Anant Kumar Nayak, SaiKrishna ST and Darpan Inani. At the center of the story, though, is their impassioned coach Charudatta Jadhav, who turned to chess when he lost his vision, and today heads the All India Chess Federation for the Blind.

It is rare for an Indian documentary to contest for the Oscars. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science has strict requirements for documentaries, such as screening the film “a minimum of four times daily during their qualifying theatrical releases in both New York and Los Angeles.” For an Indian documentary to get such a theatrical release in itself is a challenge.

British filmmaker Ian McDonald shot Algorithms for over three years, in collaboration with his wife and producer Geetha J. After making it to the long list, the couple is awaiting December’s announcement of the 15 official nominees to the Oscars. Though, this is not the first honor the film has received: Algorithms was also the only Indian production nominated for this year’s British Griersons documentary awards, commonly known as the Oscars of the documentary world.

McDonald told Quartz that the idea came to him when he read a news report about the blind chess community in 2006. He shelved it for a couple of years, until 2009 when he attended the national team chess championship in Mumbai, where he met Jadhav and the three boys. Once he got to know them, the documentary started taking life.

The film is a journey forward for all three boys. Inani is a better player than SaiKrishna and Nayak, but they are both rising stars of blind chess in India. In between tournaments and practice sessions, the proceedings in the film are interspersed with their parents narrating their stories—with forthrightness, yet at time overcome with emotions. The boys have been through drastic times: Inani is blind, and he doesn’t even remember a time when he could see. But SaiKrishna is slowly losing vision, though he wishes no one could find that out. Anant has no vision now, but he remembers a time when he could see.

“We didn’t pick them up for that, but it so happened that the boys were different from each other in all aspects,” Geetha said.

The fact that the three belonged to three culturally and linguistically different cities, Chennai, Baroda and Bhubaneswar, and were born to families of varying economic standings adds more layers to the story.

In a country where the first grandmaster, Viswanathan Anand, is a household name, the documentary exposes the lack of interest from the government for the blind chess. It brings hope of some visibility to those who are invisible, like the protagonists, who need sponsorship and infrastructure; they barely manage funds to attend tournaments, especially the international championships in a foreign country held every two years.

The film may also bring interest to Jadhav’s project to start teaching chess in blind schools: he makes a distinction between chess players and people who play chess. He certainly wants chess players to win medals, so that the government notices them, but he is more committed to nurturing more blind people who play chess.

He wants the blind to enjoy the same level of confidence that playing chess gave him.  As he puts it in the prologue of the film, “chess is the only sport where the blind and the sighted are on par.”

Imitating the game of chess, the film was converted to black and white after being made in color. “It was like some sort of retrospective justification,” McDonald told Quartz, “By making the film black and white, we are depriving the sighted of an element of the vision.” As images are devoid of color, they appear sometimes abstract, yet immersing the viewers.

The film is most likely to release in India in the coming year, though it was screened at the Mumbai International Film Festival in February.

Attack on Northeast people out of information gap: Assamese filmmaker (PTI)

Attack on Northeast people out of information gap: Assamese filmmaker

Sunday, 23 November 2014 - 4:25pm IST | Agency: PTI

    Journalist-turned-filmmaker Utpal Borpujari feels violence against people of north east in some parts of the country is due to "information gap" and "misconceptions" even as he expressed the need to make conscious efforts to bridge this deficit.

    Borpujari's documentary on Naga folk, 'Songs of the Blue Hills' is critically acclaimed in the Indian Panorama section at ongoing International Film Festival of India (IFFI) here. "There is a huge gap of information regarding North East.

    We have often seen using words like mainstream India for the states which are not from North East. There is lot of misconception about the North Eastern states," Borpujari told PTI. Terming the attacks on the people of north east as "unfortunate", Borpujari underlined the need to bridge the information gap by making conscious efforts pan-India.

    "In fact, there should be conscious efforts like including information about the North East in school curriculum," the 46-year-old filmmaker said. 

    'Songs of the Blue Hills' is produced by Delhi-based Centre for Cultural Resource and Training (CCRT), which has also started a special initiative to educate people about the north eastern culture.
    Borpujari, whose earlier documentary 'Mayong: Myth/Reality' had made waves, said that movies based on the north east can help a lot in providing knowledge about this part of the country and dispelling stereotypes. He candidly said that his journey towards shooting 'Songs of the Blue Hills' started in oblivion.

    "When I conceptualised the subject, I knew very little about the Naga folk music. When I went to Nagaland it was a journey to discover myself. I realised that a large number of people from Nagaland are pursuing music," he said.
    Borpujari said he stumbled upon the fact that Nagaland is the only state in the country where government has formed a task force to ensure that people take music as a profession only during making of the documentary.--

    The struggle in silence: Gour Hari Dastaan (The Hindu)


    http://www.thehindu.com/features/metroplus/gour-hari-dastaan-ananth-mahadevan-cp-surendran/article6625084.ece

    The struggle in silence

     
    ANUJ KUMAR
    Comment   ·   print   ·   T  T  
    • Special Arrangement Director Ananth Mahadevan
    • Special Arrangement Writer C.P. Surendran

    As “Gour Hari Dastaan” makes waves at the ongoing IFFI-14, director Ananth Mahadevan and writer C.P. Surendran share their experience

    It started with a small incident when Gour Hari Das’s son applied for admission in a polytechnic institute in Matunga, Mumbai. He was told that he could get extra marks if he could produce a certificate indicating that his father was a freedom fighter. He rushed home and told his father. Das, who was part of vanar sena, whose job was to carry secret posts to freedom fighters, saidthat he didn’t participate in the freedom struggle to get a certificate but gave him a release slip of the jail. The principal said even a criminal could get such a document. This changed the life of Das because he was being called a fraud. He took on the State but found it was easier to fight the British than getting his due from his own people. He was told to file the application in Orissa because he went to jail in Balasore. He told the officer that during the freedom struggle he didn’t fight for the freedom of Orissa or Maharashtra; he fought for the freedom of India. Ultimately, Das got his tampatra in 2008 and his struggle inspired Ananth Mahadevan to weave Gour Hari Dastaan - The Freedom File (GHD), which was premiered at IFFI this past weekend and is one of the two Hindi films which are part of Indian Panorama.

    “The general opinion is, and this happened even when I made Mee Sindhutai Sapkal, the biopic on the social worker who lives in Pune, that a film about unsung heroes would veer towards a documentary rather than a feature. The life of Gour Hari Das may be simple and ‘uneventful’ in the conventional and crass commercial sense, but the simmering internal conflict of a man seeking identity and turning a fighter to prove his credentials, is the kind of material that lends itself to cinematic terrain. It is a road-rail-office-home trip of another kind, the kind that would find resonance in every citizen who had to live through the rigmarole of red-tapism in India,” says Mahadevan, whose filmography is a curious mix of crass commercial and sublime. “These are rewarding experiences I don’t mind investing time and money in, with only worldwide acknowledgement as my return. That is where an Xpose comes in handy. As they say, swim with the sharks when the need arises. They provide protection to small fish like me.”

    Senior journalist and noted poet and novelist, CP Surendran, who has written the screenplay says it was a story he ran away from. “Who wants to read again about what happened in 1947. It is another millennium, isn’t it? So when Ananth Mahadevan brought up the subject, I said I wasn’t interested. He had read Gour Hari Das’s struggle in a newspaper. And typical of Ananth he had started amassing anything that related to the man, who lives in Dahisar, a western suburb of Mumbai. My writing is more centred around conflicted and rather dark personalities, and I found Gour fairly satisfied with himself. If he bore deep wounds, he didn’t show them. A month or so later, Ananth suggested we pay a visit to him. We did, and it did nothing to me. Then one day I thought, if this man fought for 32 years for his recognition, surely he should be an extraordinarily determined man. And it also struck me that this was a man who fought then two freedom wars, one against the Brits and one against Indians. And so I went at it,” relates Surendran.

    On the contemporary relevance of the story, Surendran says the relevance is precisely that the values Das represents are now obsolete. “It is bringing good back to the big bad world. Some one does you great harm, denies you your identity and past? And what do you do? You become a Naxalite? Turn to mass killings? Form a political party? No, Gaur Hari Das goes up and down steps of the great big institutions of the world's largest democracy for 32 years with Gandhian determination and steely stoicism. And he wins at last, and the process doesn’t turn him into a bitter angry man. This is a movie of hope, the saga of a 30 years’ war waged in silence. Good cinema, see?”

    Recalling his meetings with Das, Surendran says he took to writing the script only because somewhere his image became associated with his late father, a well known writer in Malayalam, who died of Alzheimer's. “I saw the language he lived by slipping away from him. I introduced some of that into the character.”

    On casting Vinay Pathak in the title role, Mahadevan says the titular role challenged him to cast correctly and many eyebrows were raised when he I suggested Vinay Pathak to play Das. “I always knew Vinay as a thinking actor who was much beyond the comic roles he was being confined to on screen. And as the film began and the make-over started along with Vinay sinking his teeth into the character, the lines between Vinay and Das blurred. It was imperative that the rest of the principal characters matched this. Though Konkona plays the part of Das’s wife, a role of shorter length than Das, no actress of lesser calibre could have pulled off the role of the film’s conscience keeper as well as she has done. Ranvir Shorey and Tannishhtha Chatterjee too were on my wish list to play the journalists fighting their own demons and finding their alter ego in Das’s struggle. The film also features names like Rajit Kapur, Vikram Gokhale, Saurabh Shukla Vidya Malavade...some of them willingly playing cameos because they believed in the film and Das’s integrity as a person.”

    Surendran has brought his journalistic experience to the table. “Well, one of the main characters performed brilliantly by Ranvir Shorey, is a journalist. He is a failure in the corporate-media world, a rebel and a drunk. The experience I had of the media world came in handy in his portrayal. Also there is a bit of my earlier avatar as a so called misogynist columnist finding its way into the movie.”

    And, of course, the habit of meeting the deadline. “I finished the shooting script in three months. Ananth helped, of course but basically the movie making experience was one of making sense of the material I had access to without getting preachy or boring. The subject ran the risk of putting you to sleep. So I did follow a time line and three stage process of set-up, confrontation and resolution. Making sense is hard, as you know, especially in Bollywood where the race is to spend more money so life comes out looking stupider. Stupidity bores me. And it is also dangerous, of course.”

    The movie film is being talked about in the film circles for a long time now. Mahadevan says the film’s post production was very crucial. “The film boasts of probably one of the most high profile technical teams ever put together. Emmy award winning cinematographer Alphonse Roy shot GHD on film, probably among the last of movies in India to be shot on film. Sreekar Prasad edited the film giving it a rare pondering quality so scarce in the hit-and-run pace of today’s movies. Dr L Subramaniam returning to composing for Hindi cinema 30 years after Mira Nair’s Salaam Bombay preferred to record the score and numbers in Los Angeles and Poland where the studios offered impeccable sound quality. And Resul Pookutty had to be given his breathing space to design the sound for the myriad hues of Mumbai. All of which may have made it appear that the film was delayed, but it needed the finish that it now has. All of which is a blessing in disguise because the current mood of the country is in sync with the film’s optimism.”

    Video Report on Police Repression in Kashipur, Odisha for opposing Aditya Birla bauxite mining project





    Dear friends

    On 25th August 2014 large number of armed police forces including CRPF reached at the top of the Baphlihill, where Utkal Alumina of Aditya Birla - Hindalco is continuously transporting bauxite through trucks to its Doraguda Alumina Plant. They started beating the villagers of Paikakupakhal. “They were in 25 four wheelers and one bus” Padman Nayak of the same village said.

    Many got the injured and three dalit villagers namely Mangaldan Nayak (30years), Kalendra Nayak (30) and Ms Kiyabati Nayak got injured more. Both print media and TV channels did not cover the incident except one. 

    Later that local journalist of that newspaper later on was harassed by the goons not to write more on it.

    This is a video report on that incident titled ‘Police baton-charged villagers for opposing Aditya Birla bauxite mining project in Orissa ‘  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0IJliEehZ0

    I was there few days before. I had written on it in my last article ‘Why they would bear the burden of ‘National Development’?’ http://www.countercurrents.org/ranjan151114.htm


    For last seven days villagers have stopped mining operation. But local media is silent on it. You can circulate it if you want to do so.

    Yours

    Deba Ranjan

    BEYOND BOUNDARIES

    Produced by -Sauhard

    26 mins, Gujarati and Hindi with English subtitles

    Beyond Boundaries  showcases the stories of five extraordinary couples who broke all boundaries to meet their soul mates and how they never let their religious identities become more important than their love for each other.This film also challenges the stereotypes of conversation and of cultural differences among communities.

    The copies of Beyond Boundaries is available on DVD with the small contribution of Rs 200.

    Many thanks
    Gaurang

    Qissa-e Parsi: The Parsi Story
    Legend has it that when the Parsis arrived on the shores of Gujarat, India sometime between the 8th and 10th century, they promised the local King Jadhav Rana that they would sweeten the Indian community as sugar sweetens milk. Qissa-e Parsi explores the history of the Parsi community, and its journey to its present state as they have strived to keep the mythical promise made over ten centuries ago. The film seeks to understand the Zoroastrian faith, and the philosophy to live and laugh and love that is the backbone of the Parsi way of life, and what makes it so endearingly unique and beloved. As the community is plagued with anxieties over its dwindling numbers, the film looks at the current debates on issues of inter-faith marriage where children of men who marry out are considered Parsi but those of women who marry out are not. On the whole, Qissa-e Parsi is an attempt to understand a community which has always been numerically small, yet culturally and socially formidable.
