Qissa-e Parsi: The Parsi Story <at> IFFI 2014


Dear All,
We are happy to invite you for the screening of our film Qissa-e Parsi: The Parsi Story at International Film Festival of India (IFFI) 2014, Goa. The screening will take place on November 25, 2014 at INOX Cinema, Panjim at 3.30 pm. The details of the film are given below.

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.

Synopsis

Beautiful. Ugly.
Complete. Incomplete.
Able. Disabled.

Within stifling dichotomies of normal and abnormal, lie millions of women negotiating with their identities. This film explores notions of beauty, the ‘ideal body’ and sexuality through four storytellers; four women who happen to be persons with disability.

Through the lives of Natasha, Sonali, Kanti and Abha, this film brings to fore questions of acceptance, confidence and resistance to the normative.


Home-schooled till her 8th grade, Abha went on to obtain three Master's degree and has founded an organization specific to concerns of persons with disabilities today. Financial independence, access to public spaces, access to sexual health services and information, are among a few aspects that govern how she decides to express her sexuality.

Kanti, among the most gregarious of employees at Apeejay School, has been in happy and difficult relationships and experienced a more than a fair share of heartache. She believes disability is not a pre-decided criterion for her partner and would love to be with an able-bodied man who acknowledges her rights and desires.

Sonali and her boyfriend Yogesh got married nearly three years ago amidst much cheer. Indeed, things seem fairly challenging on some fronts, but life is many more 'ordinary' things for them...like going out for dinner and watching movies together.

Natasha finds it amusing that people find her 'normal'. She wishes it weren't as easy to compartmentalize the 'normal' and 'abnormal'. Natasha patiently resists constant reminders of her perceived 'incompleteness', carving an identity of a self-reliant individual who loves to draw, write, play, and dream of a better world.

As it turns out, these questions are not too removed from everyday realities of several others, deemed ‘imperfect’ and ‘monstrous’ for not fitting in. Accsex traces the journey of the storytellers as they reclaim agency and the right to unapologetic confidence, sexual expression and happiness.

‘Candles in the wind’

Synopsis:

 

Punjab.

- the land of the five Rivers...

- the food bowl of India...

The petri-dish of the 'Green Revolution.'

 

The escalating farm suicides and cancer in Punjab are perhaps the best-kept secret of the Indian state today.

 

All school and college text-books sing paeans in praise of the Green Revolution farming at Punjab. Popular cinema from Bollywood keeps this carefully cultivated image alive. The image is a mirage.

 

Behind the smokescreen of an idyllic Punjab, there is real smoke, from the smoldering pyres of the farmers who are committing suicide.

 

‘Candles in the wind’ investigates policy-induced non-remunerative agriculture and escalating farm-suicides in the heart of Punjab.

 

Where men found an easy escape in death, the widows bear the burden of their debt, and yet affirm their faith in life - taking care of children, ageing parents and the chemically-abused fields. With their backs to the wall, these women fight the State and the almighty Corporations.

 

History will not record the dirges of men who chose to die. Poets shall tell the stories of the women who silently shoulder the sky, standing tall amidst the ruins of the Punjab they love.

 

'Candles in the wind' witnesses the silent march of these women as they re-negotiate the rules of engagement and the politics of domination in their bid to survive. Their struggle gives us a window into the social-economic flux in rural India.

 

The strategies of survival and re-negotiation of spaces lends itself to a nuanced understanding of the silent under-currents of a gender-specific struggle in the larger narrative of surviving as a farmer in these times.

 

The film is a poignant portrayal of these brave farm-widows, with minimalist narration and a cinematic interplay of image and soundscapes.

 

 

Directors: Kavita Bahl & Nandan Saxena.

Synopsis

The very first is often accorded a larger than life proportion on many fronts; and so is a women's sexual experience. 'My Sacred Glass Bowl' looks at the concept of virginity as it is perceived by contrasting communities, from the vantage point of the filmmaker, sandwiched between two mothers bringing up their daughters in contemporary times, connected by a young lady caught in the cob webs. Virginity is premarital chastity and hence within the power equations with regard to men, like the expected post marital chastity, fidelity. It thus forms the first part of a women's life. The film is a document of how women made their sexual choices in the generation that just passed by.
