One-day Documentary film screening
Organized by 'Barasat Onyomon'
Film selection and presentation by Cinema of Resistance (Kolkata Chapter)

Date: 24 May (Sunday)
Venue: Barasat Subhas Institute Hall (nearest landmark: Barasat Colony Mowr)
Time: 3 pm to 9 pm

Films:

Nam Poribortito - Mitali Biswas
Gadi Lohardaga Mail - Biju Toppo and Meghnath Akhra
The Referendum - Tarun Kumar Mishra
Pahli Avaz (First Cry) - Ajay TG

Brief synopses of the films:

Nam Poribortito is about rape and gender violence in West Bengal and the rest of the country. Through a series of incidents with focus on the survivors and victims it examines the various aspects of the crisis, looks for social and political roots of the problem and examines the women's movement fighting patriarchy. Some of the women fighting this battle against patriarchal 'norms and common-sense' on the ground will take part in the post-screening discussions.

Gadi Lohardaga Mail is a documentation of people’s memories about a passenger train that ran on the now-defunct meter-gauge tracks till 2003. Accompanying the last journey of the train, the film archives some unforgettable melodies. Namely, 'biraha gaan' of the working class (working class songs of migration, separation and longing), songs of Jharkhandi identity and folk songs about the train becoming an inseparable part of the Jharkhandi landscape.

The Referendum documents the historic defeat of the the Vedanta mining company in the hands of the adivasis of Niyamgiri, where the multinational mining giant lost 12-0 to the adivasis in a series of 12 Gram Sabha referendums which unanimously rejected the mining company's bid for Bauxite mining and refining in the Niyamgiri hills in Odisha. In a film where even the concept of 'god' and 'worship' splits into two divergent worldviews, we have a strong document of people-centric and environment-centric struggles against mindless corporate loot.

This is going to be the very first screening of The Referendum in West Bengal.

First Cry is the story of the Shaheed Hospital and People's Health movement in Dalli-Rajhara under the able leadership of the workers' movement of the Chhattisgarh Mukti Morcha led by comrade Shankar Guha Niyogi. The film is much more than just the story. It also dwells on the meaning and essence of the slogan 'Sangharsh aur Nirman' (Struggle and Synthesis) through praxis. Activists who have engaged in people's health movements over decades will take part in the post-screening discussion

Artivist Film Festival: Call for Entries [2 Attachments]

Hi,

Please forward the mail to relevant organizations and help us spread the word/ get more entries.
Thanks and regards,
Prutha Soman
Sir/Madam,

Artivist, a non- profit organization is dedicated to working with and for children. At Artivist, we aspire to create meaningful and significant yet engaging and appealing content about and for children, be it through a film, a song, a poem or an animation strip. It endeavors to bridge the distance between children and child related institutions by providing a substantial platform to share their feelings, express their views and voice their opinions on various subjects about children.

Artivist sprouted from the sensitive mind of our Founder, Rishi Deshpande, a filmmaker by profession and a dreamer at heart. According to him, children are the key to a better world. The budding of Artivist into an organization was further nurtured by the Co- Founder Prutha Soman, also a filmmaker as well as an author and dancer by profession.

Artivist believes that through a healthy dialogue and communication children could grow up to be responsible citizens and most importantly, sensitive human beings of tomorrow.

Our recently launched project is the Artivist Film Festival that will promote and showcase the young talent in visual media through films made by children. The “Call for Stories” has been announced and the deadline to send in the entries is July 31st 2015. The “Festival Brief” along with the “Submission Guidelines and Application Form” is attached herewith. We request you to encourage children between the age group of 11 to 14 years to participate in this festival and send in their entries on the subject “What’s Your Blue?”

As a policy, Artivist Film Festival is not going to give away any awards or prizes as our main objective is to provide stimulation to every child to express themselves. Instead, selective entries will be offered technical help and guidance to translate their stories into films or videos of suitable duration and the resultant films will be screened before an audience. Participants not selected can independently work on their films and still submit completed films. They may also write in with queries from time to time and the Artivist Team would guide them accordingly. All films we receive will be a part of the online film festival of Artivist and every expression will be showcased.

For more information/queries/any other details you may contact us on-
Email:                artivistfoundation-Re5JQEeQqe8AvxtiuMwx3w@public.gmane.org
Mobile Nos.:       9892520908/ 9892500336

Artivist sincerely hopes and looks forward to your support and cooperation in this unique and innovative effort to expand the horizon of the young generation.

Thanks and regards,
Artivist Film Festival Team

Channel 4 is piloting a ground-breaking new documentary series called The Secret Life of Kids and are looking for families to take part.

Hi,

Channel 4 is piloting a ground-breaking new documentary series called The Secret Life of Kids and are looking for families to take part. 

It’s about how families live together and what the children make of it all. 

The tone is warm and funny and they’d like to speak to bright, talkative families who are happy to talk honestly to, and about, each other. 

They’re looking for everyday people but especially potential contributors who are strong characters and have distinct personalities and will be telling different stories from the children’s point of view. 

Families should have several children between the ages of 3-14 years old. 

There may also be other children outside this age range.If you'd like to apply, please email priya-cI0XiTVS+4MqdlJmJB21zg@public.gmane.org

A day of documentaries at the FD Zone, Delhi

 

 

Documentaries never looked better!

 

FD Zone Delhi - at the Films Division Auditorium, Mahadev Road

 

A 140 seater auditorium with plush seating in the heart of the city. One of the best projections in Delhi. Sound that makes pictures come alive. The newly renovated Films Division auditorium at Mahadev Road is now open for public screenings, and we, at FD Zone Delhi, are excited. To celebrate, we decided to put together a package of films in association with the Lightcube Film Society. Join us in watching some interesting films all through the day on the 23rd of May!   


Date: May 23rd, 2015 (Saturday)

 

Place: The Films Division Auditorium <at> Mahadev Road

 

Directions: https://goo.gl/maps/l5m34 Get to the Gol Dak Khana roundabout and take Pandit Pant Marg from there. At the mouth of the first left, right next to the traffic island, is the Films Division Auditorium, on Mahadev Road.

 

Nearest Metro: Patel Chowk (Yellow Line).

 

Curation Note

 

This curation includes early works of world cinema from the 1920s to the 40s – works that foreground the filmmakers’ curiosities and discoveries around the new medium, the encounter with the magic of cinema itself.  The films of that period reflect experimentation in form, style, story-telling modes that have today become a window for us to understand and experience the various possibilities that cinema allowed for - both from within and through the filmmakers who explored the medium in their own unique ways.

 

Along with these, we revisit a few gems from the archives of the Film Division of India - films that reflect a similar excitement and exploration of the medium, stretching the boundaries to create distinct narratives.

 

 

Session 1 - 11 am to 1 pm

 

Koodal (16 mins)
Tyeb Mehta (1970)

Tyeb Mehta’s critically acclaimed film Koodal (‘meeting point’ in Tamil) made in 1970 explores the city of Mumbai through the eyes of the painter- a congregation of disjointed images and events that intermingle and interact with each other to construct the complex rhythms of everyday life in the metropolis.

 

This bit of that India (21 mins)
SNS Sastry (1975)

A experimental journey through sound and images of the youth of the country, and their thoughts in the ‘70s.

 

And the stars look on (13 mins)
Omprakash Sharma (1968)

Night comes to give peace and rest to the tired soul. But in modern cities hubbing with industrial activities it is not rest for all. How different sections of the community spend their hard-earned and well-deserved rest is depicted in this film.

 

Enthusiasm (67 mins)
Dziga Vertov (1931)

Known for its unprecedented use of sound and visual technique, Enthusiasm explores the mines and factories of Eastern Ukaraine during the First Five Year Plan program for economic development initiated under Stalin’s regime.

 

 

Session 2 - 3 pm to 5 pm

 

A Nous A Liberte (Freedom For us) (97 mins)
Rene Clair (1931)

Employing the trope of comedy, the film is a landmark in its use of sound and sound design.  Unusual sound effects and recorded sound come together to explore ideas of regimentation, industrialization, power and control.

 

And I make short films (16 mins)
SNS Sastry (1968)

And I Make Short Films’ interrogates the purpose of documentaries, why are they made and for whom, while also touching upon issues of censorship, technique and ideology of a film/ filmmaker in the process.

 

Anemic Cinema (6 mins)
Marcel Duchamp (1926)

A spiral design spins dizzily. It’s replaced by a spinning disk. These continue in perfect alternation until the end: a spiral design, a disk. Each disk can be labelled and read as it rotates. The message, features puns and whimsical rhymes and alliteration. The final message comments on the spiral motif itself.

 

 

Session 3 - 6 pm to 8 pm

Hamara Rashtragaan (10 mins)
Pramod Pati (1964)

The film aims at helping children to learn the correct way to sing India’s National Anthem.

 

Man with a movie camera (68 mins)
Dziga Vertov (1929)

The film is famous for a range of cinematic techniques Vertov invents, deploys or develops, such as double exposure, fast motion, slow motion, freeze frames, jump cuts, Dutch angles and so on, to create a self reflexive narrative. The film remains critical to discussions on experimental practice in film and cinematic self reflexivity.

 

At land (15 mins)
Maya Deren (1944)

The film breaks the time and space continuity to create a surreal, dream like narrative where the filmmaker undertakes a journey, encountering varied versions of her personal self.

Jal Satyagraha 32 days on is peeling off soles, not determination

In the Ghogalgaon village of Madhya Pradesh, 213 protesters have been standing in water for 32 days now. Here’s why, in spite of all the hardships they have to bear, they seem stubborn in the hope that the government will eventually provide them with justice.
In the Khandwa region of Madhya Pradesh, 213 protesters stand with half their bodies submerged in water. This act, embodying profound perseverance, is being carried out in the hope of persuading the government to provide the low-lying villages of the region with rehabilitation. This demand has risen in the face of the threat which haunts these villages, posed by the opening of gates of the Omkareshwar dam.

And a bucket of water in the other:
With these things I am going to set fire to Heaven
And put out the flames of Hell
