MOVIE SCREENING - CHARULATA
Thu May 16, 7:30 PM
HYDERABAD CINEPHILES
Satyajit Ray's film Charulata is based on Rabindranath Tagore's story The Broken Nest.The setting of story is of Calcutta in British India. Charulata is the bored, artistic, cultured, much younger wife of a newspaper editor and proprietor who prides himself on being a bold free-thinker. His charming young cousin, a would-be writer called Amal comes to stay and Amal and Charulata take an interest in each other's literary aspirations as well as in each other generally. The delicate pathos and subtle comedy of their romance is a joy, and there is wonderful audacity in the way Ray shows Charulata's life at the beginning while simply looking out of the window, studying the passersby with the engaged curiosity of a true artist. This film is a boost for the mind and heart.

DURATION : 2 HOURS
DATE : 16TH MAY AT 7:30 PM

Mukti 1937 Bengali FilmScreening
Sat May 18, 7:00 PM
Lamakaan
Mukti 1937 Bengali film screening with English subtitles
Country: Indian; Year: 1937; Language: Bengali; Runtime: 115 min; Color: Black and White; Sound: Mono
Studio: New Theatres


Barua's classic adultery story tells of an artist, Prasanta (Barua) presented in the stereotypically romantic image dedicated to his vocation, paying no heed to his scandalous reputation (he paints nude models) and with a cavalier attitude to his conservative father-in-law's (Choudhury) demands for good social behaviour. He is married to the rich Chitra (Kanan Devi). The couple are in love but neither partner is prepared to compromise their ideals. The marriage falls apart. Prasanta concedes his wife demand for a divorce and goes to the jungles of Assam, where for many years his closest associates are a wild elephant and Jharna (Menaka), the wife of an innkeeper named Pahari (P. Mullick). He also makes a sworn enemy of a local trader (Nawab/A. Mullick). Chitra marries the millionaire Bipul (Mukherjee) and they go on an elephant hunt. They kill Prasanta's pet elephant. Since Chitra believes Prasanta to be dead he avoids meeting her, but he is forced to rescue her from the vilainous trader. Prasanta succeeds but dies at Chitra's feet. The film interprets his death as Chitra's final achievement of the freedom she had craved. Barua contrasts the regressive story presented as static and unresolved, both as narrative and performance, with a hyperactive environment that overwhelms the trivial nature of the lead couples' desires. There are many sequence shots tracking through walls - including the justly celebrated 'psychological' opening shot as Prasanta walks through one door after another until he reaches his studio, and from interior to exterior, while nature is exemplified by mountains, trees, wind and charging elephants. This was one of the first elaborate filmic uses of Tagore's lyrics, with the poet's original tunes (Sahar range rang, Mesa te bobe. Tar biday belar malakhani), but one of the film's big hits, Diner sheshe ghumer deshe, was composed originally for the film by Mullick.

The film will be introduced by Aparajita Roy Sinha, Film Critique

Movie Analysis by Reelistic MC
Sat May 25, 3:00 PM
Raghuveer Raju Boosa
Art and literature can be seen as extensions of the human mind. Very often they can reveal what lies within, sometimes visibly, and, sometimes, not quite so visibly. The movie club is (we hope) a fun way of looking deeper into the emotions, perceptions and thoughts that weave human relationships together or tear them apart. A movie may be treated as a true story or, alternatively, can be used as a tool to try and figure out what went on in the directors head when the movie was made. Either way, it’s a different way of understanding human behavior and relationships. In the end, by looking deeper into another’s story, we hope, perchance, to understand ourselves better.

Birjees Qadar Ka Kunba
Sat May 25, 7:30 PM
Nibha Theatre Ensemble
The play ‘Birjees Qadar Ka Kunba’ is the Indian adaptation by Raghuvir Sahay, of the original Spanish play ‘The House of Bernada Alba’ written by the revolutionary genius of Spanish theatre, Federico Garcia Lorca in the year 1936, who brought vivid and tragic poetry to the stage with his powerful dramas. Birjees, a tyrannical matriarch rules over her house and five daughters, cruelly crushing their hopes and needs. The play eloquently deals with culture of deprivation and denial that manifests itself in violence and hostility which is synonymous with the repression suffered by women in rural or small town women in Indian context till this date. The tragedy of virginity is persistent across cultural boundaries and sexual and social freedom continues to be a never ending struggle.

Casteism InstitutionalizedMurder
Sun Jun 9, 4:30 PM
DIALOGUE
Let's Discuss
"Casteism - Institutionalised Murders"

The suicide of Dr Payal Tadvi from Maharashtra has sparked the discussion of " caste discrimination" all over the nation. This incident particularly shows how a bold, brave girl can be broken through casteism. The three senior female doctors who harrased her don't even acknoeledge their mistake or recognise their caste privilege.
More recently a guy named Bakki Srinivas was beaten to death for eating a fallen mango from the mango plantagion of a savarna landlord. In Alwar, Rajasthan a heterosexual bahujan couple were stripped naked and girls were gang raped by a mob of sarvarna men.
Many such incidents of caste-based harassment have been surfacing from time to time. All these incidents are proof that even after 70 years of criminalising caste discrimination the urban and rural India suffers from everyday casteism which leads to institutionalised murders of people like Payal, Rohith Vemula etc.,
Rohit vemula student of UOH who committed suicide wrote " The value of a man was reduced to his immediate identity and nearest possibility. To a vote, to a number to a thing. Never was a man treated as a mind" in his letter. His death marked the uprising of a movement that asked for "ROHIT ACT" which would strain the present SC, ST atrocities act / POA ACT. Instead, the present savarna dominant Hindutva government has been trying to dilute the POA ACT.

At this juncture, it's important that all of us understand the effects and forms of casteism in these contemporary times and find ways to END CASTEISM.

Ambekar said " Educate- Agitate- Organise" Therefore let us all discuss and educate ourselves casteism, it's effects and the way ahead to end casteism.

ALL ARE WELCOME!!!
