Screening of The Referendum/Janamata produced by Samadrsuti Televisions and Directed by Tarun Mishra [2 Attachments]

SAMADRUSTI ELECTRONIC MEDIA March 4,2015

Dear Sir/Madam,

The Referendum/Janamata produced by Samadrsuti Televisions
and Directed by Tarun Mishra is going to be released in
Bhubaneswar for the city audience on March 7, 2015 at 5.30
PM at Documentary Discussion Club( DDC), Lohia Academy.

We shall be happy if you can join us. The pre launching preview
of the documentary was done at Bargarh Gandhi Bhawan on
January 23, 2015. Ravenshaw University,( PG Dept of Politics)
Cuttack organized the premier show in its Heritage Hall on
February 19, 2015. 

The first public show of the documentary
took place on February 21, 2015 on the top of Niyamgiri Hills
among Dongarias as part of an initiative taken by Amitav Patro.

A series of screening programs have been planned for other
places and universities both within the state and outside.

Synopsis : “The Janamat/Referendum features a legal and ecological battle
of the Dongaria tribes to save the hills from the clutches of a
giant mining company. It narrates the story of these primitive
groups’ views against mining in the Gram Sabhas organized by
the State Government between July and August 2013 on a
direction of the Supreme Court. 

The film tells about the
struggle of the tribals since 2005 with several ups and downs
which finally came to an end on April 18, 2013 when the
Supreme Court in a clear verdict asked the village councils of
Dongarias to take a decision as to whether bauxite mining would
affect their religious, cultural and other rights or not. 

The documentary captures images, moments and views of the
Dongarias in front of the Judges in all the 12 Gram Sabha
meetings. They register their dissent citing the reasons thereof
and reject mining in Niyamgiri hills.

All our electronic works are produced without any financial
support and sponsorship. We depend on viewers’ patronage and
supports from our esteemed friends. We sincerely hope you too
will be a patron friend.

Please come and encourage us even if
you have seen the film in one of the above places. We are
grateful to Lohia Academy and Sri. Deba Mohaptra for the
initiative called DDC, where useful documentaries will be
screened every month.

Warmest regards and wishes
Sudhir Pattnaik

I carry a torch in one hand
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
So that voyagers to God can rip the veils
And see the real goal........................................By Rabia (Rabi'a Al-'Adawiyya)

FD-zone London

We are pleased to announce the launch of

FD-zone London

a collaboration between the Faculty of Media, Arts and Design, University of Westminster, and the Films Divisionn>

 

Monday 16 March from 17:45 to 20:30 

Fyvie Hall, University of Westminster

309 Regent Street, London W1B 2HW

 

Screening of Rangbhoomi

(dir. Kamal Swaroop, 2013, 80 mins)

followed by round table discussion

 

  

FD-zone London will launch with a screening of Rangbhoomi by acclaimed Indian experimental filmmaker Kamal Swaroop. The film will be introduced by Shai Heredia (Srishti School of Art), filmmaker, curator and founder of India’s Experimenta film festival, who is currently a visiting research fellow at University of Westminster. Audience discussion will follow the screening, after a round-table debate between Sha i Heredia, Dr Stephen Hughes (SOAS), Dr Ranita Chatterjee (Westminster) and Prof Rosie Thomas (Westminster).

Rangbhoomi (dir. Kamal Swaroop, 2013, 80 mins) follows the filmmaker as he attempts to trace the contours of Dada Saheb Phalke’s life in Varanasi, where Phalke, India’s legendary film pioneer, withdrew - disillusioned - from the world of cinema and decided to take up theatre. During his two years in Varanasi (1920-22) Phalke wrote a semi-autobiographical play titled Rangbhoomi which forms the cor e of this cinematic exploration. Set in the visually thrilling landscapes of the old town of Varanasi, the film intertwines the personal engagement of Kamal Swaroop with the story of Phalke’s journey and the play, deploying a vibrant palette of sounds, sights and characters in a surrealist juxtaposition. 

FD-zone London is a collaboration between the Films Division, Government of India, and the Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM) at the University of Westminster. Established in 1948, Films Division India is one of the largest documentary, experimental and short film-producing units in the world. It has an archive of more than 8000 titles, which chronicle the story of independent India through diverse narratives. FD-zone London will bring this archive into conversation with contemporary independent films through a programme of regular screenings and discussions curated by film scholars. 

The evening begins with drinks at 5.45pm for a 6pm start. The event is free and all are welcome but registration is essential.

 

Please reserve your place by registering online at http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/fd-zone-london-film-screening-rangbhoomi-by-kamal-swaroop-tickets-15776110772?aff=eac2

A selection of films from Alpavirama, 2014, NID <at> FD zone on sat, 14th March from 2:00 pm until 8:00pm


WELCOME TO THE 135th EDITION OF "THE fd ZONE" !

Alpavirama is a film festival born out of a desire to celebrate South Asians looking at South Asia, to put forward the voice of the young, and to bring to limelight the short form of filmmaking. In this age of the DSLR – Laptop-YouTube kind of relatively inexpensive and democratic digital films, Alpavirama wants to stand in solidarity with the South Asian men and women under 30, who are redefining the content and form of moving image, looking at subject matter at once micro and macro, of relevance to the world and, more importantly, to their own countries, towns and neighbourhoods.


-Arun Gupta, Festival Director

Arun Gupta brings 21 films screened and awarded at Alpavirama 2014. The films represent different voices and different modes of story telling that are truly exciting.

Jury comments on the award winning films:

The Contagious Apparitions of Dambarey Dendrite, NEPAL, By Bibhusan Basnet, Pooja Gurung
Jury Comment : The film explores a dense idea with a form that is remarkably fresh and masterfully executed.

Maneesha 1941, INDIA, By Makarand Dambhare
Jury Comment: Awarded for its ability to bring to life the human past of an empty home, simultaneously exploring both the personal and collective memories of Pune’s cultural landscape, and recording the transformation of a city as it succumbs to the real estate market. Director Makrand Dambhare expands the scope of possibilities for non-fiction film-making.

Life, INDIA, By Srinjay Thakur
Jury Comment: The film deals with the complex idea of how technology takes over life. A layered idea executed with disarming simplicity.

FEICA – A Life With Cartoons, PAKISTAN By Waseem Abbas
Jury Comment: Awarded for a well-crafted and compact film as seen through the eyes of a Karachi-based political cartoonist, Rafique Ahmed, that makes a bold statement about the relentlessly dangerous political trends in his country.

SCREENING-GOA: Invitation for film screening, March 9th, Monday, 2015


---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: People Tree <peopletree.assagao-Re5JQEeQqe8AvxtiuMwx3w@public.gmane.org>

Subject: Invitation for film screening, March 9th, Monday, 2015
To:


Mr. Edger Keret’s work proceeds from the recognition that life is tedious and confusing, as well as occasionally charmed. This effect is doubled by the extraordinary technique used in “$9.99” to bring Mr. Keret’s world to life. 
The gestures and expressions of these figures made of modeling clay, of a meticulously realized city, are given more poignancy by the slight hesitancy imposed by stop-motion animation. They pause to think before each action or utterance, even when they are being rash, heedless or irrational.

To watch his films is to enter an eerily realistic parallel universe where people and emotions are at once perfectly recognizable and completely bizarre.

Documentary: Banning is not the solution (The Hindu)

http://www.thehindu.com/opinion/editorial/banning-is-not-the-solution/article6959753.ece#.VPfRD2XRW0I.gmail

Banning is not the solution 

Decisions made in the wake of a popular outcry over emotive and sensitive issues will invariably be wrong. The government’s action in getting a court order restraining the telecast of the documentary, India’s Daughter, by the British film-maker Leslee Udwin, is a knee-jerk response to the outrage voiced by sections of society against what they call giving undue publicity to a convict’s views. While the film-maker notes that she had a ‘no objection’ letter from the Home Ministry and obtained permission from the Tihar Jail authorities to interview the convict, the police have registered an FIR after it became known that the documentary is to be aired by a television news channel on March 8, coinciding with International Women’s Day. The work has been banned from public viewing for the sole reason that it contains some repugnant comments by the convict, blaming the victim for the rape and murder. A moot question is whether it is unethical to disseminate the views of a convict, even those as abhorrent as those of Mukesh Singh; and whether banning the reporting of such views is the right response. True, it will be morally repulsive and abominable to hear the convict justifying his horrific crime by blaming the victim and saying she could have survived had she not resisted rape. But it is equally true that there is some public interest in recording such views and airing them in such a way that it does not glorify, but makes them repugnant. Actually, the documentary may even help the public recognise and counter such thought processes in society.

As the documentary is yet to be aired, it may be unfair to prejudge its approach and the level of its success in its being, in Ms. Udwin’s words, ‘an impassioned plea for gender equality’. To presume that it will only strengthen the rapist’s mindset may derail any effort to create a sensitive record of what the country needs — a conscious transition from a culture of tolerance towards gender violence to a progressive socio-legal structure that combats the phenomenon. India now has stronger and better-defined laws; there is greater sensitivity among investigators, prosecutors and judges, but the scope for genuine transformation lies in the larger domain — the attitude and approach of society at large. Documentaries such as this may serve to advance this purpose, and even if they fail to do so, the solution is not to ban such efforts. For they may help confront the culture of rape and the widely seen phenomenon of public figures, officials and politicians conforming to the patriarchal mindset that is at the core of gender violence in India. The documentary should be seen as holding a mirror unto a society that is far from being sensitive to gender issues.

"Girls Are Responsible for Rape": FIR against Docu Filmmaker

Via Bharat-Chintan list

Delhi bus rapist blames dead victim for attack because 'girls are
responsible for rape'

'She should just be silent and allow the rape': Mukesh Singh claimed
Jyoti would not have died if she hadn't fought her attackers
LIZZIE DEARDEN   Monday 02 March 2015

One of the men convicted of gang raping a woman on a bus in Delhi has
blamed his victim for the fatal attack, saying "girls are far more
responsible for rape" than men.

The 23-year-old physiotherapy student died of horrific injuries two
weeks after being assaulted by six men as she travelled home from the
cinema with a male friend.

Among them was Mukesh Singh, who claims he was driving the bus during
the incident on 16 December 2012 and did not take partIn an interview
with the BBC from prison, where he is awaiting execution, he referred
to the woman's murder as "an accident" caused by her being out at
night.

"A decent girl won't roam around at nine o'clock at night," he said.

"A girl is far more responsible for rape than a boy. Boys and girls
are not equal.

"Housework and housekeeping is for girls, not roaming in discos and
bars at night doing wrong things, wearing wrong clothes.

Police said his victim, known as "Jyoti", meaning "flame", was found
with multiple wounds and had also been raped with metal bars, causing
catastrophic internal injuries.

She and her friend were thrown from the moving bus and 13 days of
extensive medical treatment could not save her.

Jyoti's death sparked a wave of unprecedented protests across India
and the world and five of the perpetrators were sentenced to death.

The Indian public also gave her other names, including Jagruti
("awareness"), Amanat ("treasure"), Nirbhaya ("fearless one").

BBC Four is airing a documentary on the rape and its impact on 8 March.

Speaking to interviewers for the Storyville programme, to be aired on
International Women's Day, Singh is seen suggesting the rape and
beatings were to teach Jyoti and her friend a lesson.

He criticised her for resisting her attackers, saying: "When being
raped, she shouldn't fight back. A prayer ceremony for the rape victim

"She should just be silent and allow the rape. Then they'd have
dropped her off after doing her and only hit the boy."

Her male friend was badly beaten and suffered broken limbs but
survived to testify against Singh and the five other men at their
trial.

Singh was sentenced to death by hanging for Jyoti's rape and murder,
along with four others.

His brother, Ram Singh, was found dead in his jail cell in March 2013
and Mukesh and the remaining three are currently on appeal with their
sentences put on hold.

Their 17-year-old accomplice was also convicted of rape and murder but
sentenced to three years in a reform facility according to Indian
sentencing laws for juvenile offenders.

Singh claimed that executing him and the other convicted rapists will
endanger future rape victims.

"Now when they rape, they won't leave the girl like we did - they will
kill her," he said.

"Before, they would rape and say, 'Leave her, she won't tell anyone.'
Now when they rape, especially the criminal types, they will just kill
the girl."

Two lawyers who defended the rapists in court were also interviewed
for the documentary.

AP Singh had previously said that if his sister or daughter "disgraced
herself" by being seen with a man, he would "to my farmhouse, and in
front of my entire family, I would put petrol on her and set her
alight".

Another defence lawyer in the case, ML Sharma, said: "In our society,
we never allow our girls to come out from the house after 6.30 or 7.30
or 8.30 in the evening with any unknown person.

"You are talking about man and woman as friends. Sorry, that doesn't
have any place in our society. We have the best culture. In our
culture, there is no place for a woman."

It was a double standard of which Jyoti was well aware. Her former
friend and tutor told the BBC that she said India's biggest problem
was its "mentality" enforcing perceived differences between girls and
boys from birth.

Her murder increased scrutiny of the country's staggering levels of
violence against women and provoked promised legal reforms.

Jyoti was working as a physiotherapy intern when she was murdered and
her parents had sold their ancestral lands to pay for her training.

Speaking on the documentary, her father said her death "lit a torch"
for women's rights.

rape of a 5-year-old girl. Child rights activists say the rape last
week of the girl is just the latest case in which Indian police failed
to take urgent action on a report of a missing child. Three days after
the attack, the girl was found alone in locked room in the same New
Delhi building where her family lives. An Indian woman holds a poster

Her mother added: "Whenever there's a crime, the girl is blamed, 'She
should not go out. She shouldn't roam around so late or wear such
clothes.' It's the boys who should be accused and asked why they do
this."

Storyville - India's Daughter, will air on BBC Four Sunday 8 March at 10pm

I&B Ministry advises against broadcast of rape film

Leslee Udwin and Dibang, the makers of a documentary on the six men
convicted for the gang-rape and murder of a young woman student in
2012. An advisory to news channels asking them to not broadcast the
documentary was also issued by the Information and Broadcasting

jail on the interviews conducted. Udwin and Dibang, meanwhile, denied
allegations that they had filmed inside the prison without obtaining
the required permissions.
