Cantonese film 'KJ: His Music and Life' at "THE fd ZONE" on 20 SEP 2014, 4 PM <at> Films Division, Mumbai.

WELCOME TO THE 110th EDITION OF "THE fd ZONE" !


KJ: HIS MUSIC AND LIFE
Cantonese with EST, Hong Kong, Colour, 2008, 93min
Director: King-wai Cheung


"KJ: His Music and Life" presents a rare sensitive portrait of a young musician in Hong Kong, who is struggling with demands of his own talent and questioning the meaning of life. Kajeng Wong (KJ) is a 17-year-old music prodigy from a well-to-do family and lives an inexhaustible life provided by his doctor father. At the age of 11, he won his Best Pianist title at the Hong Kong Interscholastic Competition in Music and the opportunity to play Beethoven’s Concerto for Piano No. 1 with a professional orchestra in the Czech Republic. However, in the mind of the young talent, he began to question incessantly about “why piano?”, and “what is in life, if not music?”

For six years, director Cheung followed KJ’s dazzling moments on stage up to his troubled teenage years. By examining KJ’s innermost thoughts, the reality speaks of a normal young man facing universal choices and struggles – the meaning of life, God, the artistic process, inspiration, his conflicts with peers and parents.

The film won the Best Documentary, Best Editor, and Best Music at the Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival in 2009. We bring you this film courtesy CNEX. 

Trailer: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xD31w4P-A0w

Director Cheung King-wai was born in Hong Kong and he studied cello since young and pursued music in Brooklyn College, City University of New York, but after touching various other subjects, he ended up being graduated with a degree majoring in film production and philosophy. He produced 4 short fiction films and 1 short documentary film, and his works have participate and won prizes in many international film festivals.

The film is embellished by his music written for films over a period of seven decades, most prominently Umrao Jaan, Kabhi Kabhie (for which he won both Filmfare and National Awards), Phir Subah Hogi, Bazaar and Akhri Khat. The illustrious cast of the film includes singers Jagjit Kaur (his wife), Asha Bhonsle, Bhupinder, Talat Aziz and Pankaj Udhas; film makers Muzaffar Ali and Gulzar.

VIKALP <at> ALLIANCE PRESENTS


BOLLYWOOD AND ITS DISCONTENTS


Two films that look at the frayed edges of Bollywood dreams:  


Srinivas Sunderrajan’s short fiction VAPSI

&

Jill Misquitta’s documentary THE CLAP TRAP


The Clap Trap which will be screened in Bombay after over fifteen years as part of our occasional series of Classic Indian Docs


Both filmmakers will be present for a discussion, so come, see, bring friends and spread the word!

 

WHEN: FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 12, 6.30 PM


WHERE: ALLIANCE FRANCAISE, Theosophy Hall, 40, New Marine Lines, Next to Nirmala Niketan, TEL:2203 6187

 

ABOUT THE FILMS


VAPSI

Short Fiction | 5 min | 2010 | Director: Srinivas Sunderrajan


A struggling film actor in the city of Mumbai writes a letter to his mother.


CLASSIC DOC: THE CLAP TRAP

Documentary | 52 min | 1993 | India | Director: Jill Misquitta


Bombay's nickname is Bollywood; after all, the city is the centre of the world's largest movie industry. With a production of about eight hundred films a year, Bollywood excels its name-giver by far. All those films require actors, especially extras. THE CLAP TRAP is about these people: those who fill the set on payment of a meager daily wage. They are the guests at weddings, funerals and other group scenes. 'Junior Artists' they call themselves with a self-invented euphemism. They like to keep up appearances for themselves by believing they perform an indispensable task in the dream factory. In fact, they are easily interchangeable and are usually exploited. Two 'Junior Artists' are followed at their activities, downtown and at home. Masood had almost achieved stardom, until fate decreed otherwise. Pammi escaped the misery of the street by joining the anonymous army of walk-ons. We observe them at work on the set, in their union offices, and at home while trying to cope with the larger realities of living in Bombay--capital of the Bollywood merchants.

Subject: 2-minute trailer of epic documentary on Yoga.
To: Frederick Noronha <goa1556-Re5JQEeQqe8AvxtiuMwx3w@public.gmane.org>


Dear Frederick,

 

It gives me the greatest pleasure to inform you that my film on Yoga is being completed. It has been made along with my old friend and long-time yoga practitioner Rahul Bansal.

 

I have worked longer and harder on this film, than ever before.

 

The shooting was an epic journey across the country, as well as across Germany and USA. Yoga gurus, experts, practitioners, doctors and scientists warmly cooperated and helped immensely in making this film possible. The film is scheduled for screening in London and in US cities in end-September and October.

 

I thought you may enjoy seeing a 2-minute trailer of the film on the following link:

With my warm regards,

 

Benoy
