July 29: Vikalp <at> Prithvi Screening of 'Liquid Borders' and 'Arrival' + Q&A with the Director

From: Vikalp <at> Prithvi <vikalpscreenings-Re5JQEeQqe8AvxtiuMwx3w@public.gmane.org>


On Friday, July 29, Vikalp <at> Prithvi will screen 'Liquid Borders' followed by a Q&A session with director Barnali Ray Shukla and 'Arrival' by Mani Kaul.

Synopsis of 'Liquid Borders' -

This film juxtaposes current geographical and political boundaries of India with surviving human, emotional and spiritual bridges. All the borders of India are made of water, which make them fluid, inclusive and accessible to neighbours. The same adjectives interpreted in the political jargon means the menace of porosity, infiltration and threat to security.

Synopsis of 'Arrival' -

To the city come men, women, fruits, flowers, vegetables, goats and sheep – all ready for consumption. It is the process of consumption/exploitation that forms the core of the film. In a collage of images held together by an engaging soundtrack, we are shown the brutality and dehumanisation of city life.



Barnali has worked with Ram Gopal Varma, Sudhir Mishra and Ekta Kapoor as a writer/director. Her first feature film 'Kucch Luv Jaisaa' was released in 2011.

Mani Kaul, one of the pioneers of alternative cinema in India, has won the National Film Award for his films 'Duvidha' and 'Siddheshwari'.

Screening Details -

Dear Friends,

It took a long and arduous journey of struggles by the transgender movement in our country that saw the Supreme Court of India deliver the "NALSA judgement" in April 2014 where the questions of acknowledging legal gender identity of the transgender and Hijra people and the question of affirmative action to correct historic social wrongs were addressed for the first time in our country. Following this judgement and the passing of Rights of Transgender Persons Bill (2015), several states have seen formation of transgender welfare boards set up to ensure and implement the rights of transgender people. While welcoming the long-awaited judgement, activists from within the transgender movement have pointed out several important lapses in understanding, contradictions and potential dangers (in implementation) by offering in-depth and critical readings of the judgement. They have pointed out why we have still a long way to go to accept the spirit and principle of fullest self-determination of one's own gender and sexuality.

In West Bengal too, a Transgender Development Board has been formed. However, critical questions regarding issues of representation of various transgender communities, urban versus suburban and rural representation, and concerns over the methodology of implementations and democratic consultations with community activist groups have been raised ever since the board was formed.

In this programme, we would try and understand the challenges and possibilities of the transgender movement in West Bengal. Through the films we expect to understand the lived lives of the Koti and Hijra communities, listen to voices of transgender activists and persons across a range of class and caste locations, and look at some cultural and social interventions by the community to relentlessly fight for social inclusion going beyond the legal paradigm. Through the conversations we wish to understand the post NALSA scenario in all its complexity and look at the possibilities of the transgender movement's coming together with the feminist, LGB, anti-caste, working class and other democratic movements, by tracing recent trends from the past several years.

Please join, and spread the word!

the confidence to pursue our careers in filmmaking.”  *— Tribeny Rai, DIFF

“We had long sessions with the mentors on observing and understanding time
and space in life, and how to recreate it in cinema. The mentors constantly
pushed us to redefine cinema for ourselves. These were two great days full
of exercises and reflection, with a whole lot of support. The festival in
itself was an opportunity to watch great cinema.”  *— Srishti Lakhera, DIFF
Film Fellow 2015*

“A mind-blowing selection of films was screened at the Dharamshala
International Film Festival. What impressed me most were the interactive

Fwd: Young Filmmaker Fellowship 2016-17 (Last date:15th July 2016)


---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Media Collective <mediacollective-QcyVhuHjReMXhy9q4Lf3Ug@public.gmane.org>
 

Young Filmmaker Fellowship 2016-17


Media Collective invites applications from (preferably but not limited to) final year graduate and postgraduate students interested in engaging with themes of political, social, cultural and economic rights and justice using film as a medium. The Fellowship is designed for a time period of 9 months (August 2016 to April 2017).

 

Why this Fellowship?

Lack of resources, censorship and a corporatised media environment offer limited opportunities for aspiring young filmmakers to meaningfully explore political themes and radical movements in film.  In this light, it is increasingly evident that independently-curated media content hosted by collectives is the much needed radical shift in media production and distribution. The Young Filmmaker Fellowship aims to strengthen ongoing efforts in this direction by supporting engaging work in film

 

Fellowship Features

·         The Young Filmmaker Fellowship will financially assist 5 projects, with a sum of Rs 1 lakh each. The proposals can be individual or in partnerships.

·         Selected participants will participate in two workshops during the period of the fellowship, facilitated by senior filmmakers as a mentorship platform for developing their projects.

·         A screening of the films made by the fellows will be arranged in Delhi at the end of the Fellowship.

 

Selection Criteria

The process of selection will involve screening of applications (proposal, methodology and budget) by a panel comprising senior filmmakers and members of the Media Collective team.

Eligibility (Preferably, but not limited to)

·         Final year graduate or postgraduate students in film and media studies

Application requirements (Can be either in English or in any regional languages)

·         A 1500 words (maximum) proposal for the project (objective, relevance, concept and methodology).

·         A bio note (less than 500 words) on your personal journey as a filmmaker.

·         A tentative budget allocation of the fellowship amount.

·         Previous work (Offline copies in the form of DVD, pendrive or online links)

 

Proposals are invited on, but not limited to, themes such as:

·         Body and Resistance

·         Art as Protest

·         Migration and the City

·         Energy and Ecology

·         Labour Rights

·         Social Inclusion and Exclusion

 

Important Dates

The last date for application is 15th July 2016.

Selected candidates shall be notified by 5th August 2016.

 

Media Collective is a group of media practitioners operating outside the rationale of mainstream media, with an emphasis on understanding the changing discourses around rights and justice. The space encourages a critical reflection of the political context amongst practitioners from varied art forms. The Media Collective is an independent media initiative facilitated by Programme for Social Action, a solidarity and support organization for people’s movements.
