ADDABAAZI:Make In India EkDhokha
Tue Jan 30, 7:00 PM
Lamakaan Programming Team
As soon as Modi government came to power, it was focused to bring more and more foreign capital into the Indian market. Congress too always looked keen to open up various sectors one by one to bring foreign capital but BJP has taken it many steps forward in last three years. When BJP was in opposition, it opposed the same FDI’s in various sectors but now it is trying to bring more and more of it. What is the reason for this? What will be the impact of this foreign capital infusion into Indian market? BJP has relaxed the labour laws to a very large extent which means the rights of labourers are heavily curtailed. It has also given a lot of impetus for relaxation of rules and procedures for business approvals and has given a clean chit to the businessman for exploitation of various resources like farmland, water bodies, mines etc. BJP is showing a glorious future to everyone by advertising its program of “Make in India”. But with all these major changes, will Make In India benefit the common man and the working class poor of this country? Will such policy enormously benefit the foreign corporates or will it change the lives of the working class people ? Is “make in India” a populist slogan with nothing substantial for the large section of the society?
Lamakaan programming council Is organizing a series of informal discussions and chit-chat under the name “ADDABAAZI”. The topic of Make in India – Ek Dhokha ! is chosen as the first in these series of discussions. So in order to understand the politics and economics around “ Make in India” and discuss it in an informal way, Moderator Mr. Aniket Aalm.
Lamakaan invites all of you on 30th Jan 2018 at 7:00 pm.

Play 1: Shakkar k Paanch Daane

As Rajkumar speaks about his unremarkable life in his nondescript village he mentions the five grains of sugar – the five people – who have stood out in his drab life for reasons stranger than fiction. The five grains become a single life-game that he has been unknowingly playing for years. Eventually he realizes that everyone has a story inside them. Rajkumar has been requested to write a poem for a compilation to be published. Come join us to watch Safarnama’s take on the play 'Shakkar Ke Paanch Daane' written by the playwright Manav Kaul and get introduced to Rajkumar to realize the absurdity of the request.

Written by: Manav Kaul
Cast: Dev Bhardwaj, Chetan Gupta

Play 2: Wajeh
Societal changes play a major role in shaping the inner being of a child. These changes either motivate the child to aspire for a brighter future or they force him to go through a psychotic breakdown. It is said, that an individual's personality depends on his upbringing which means one's actions in some way or the other are proportional to these changes. So, if one follows, as you may call it, a henious path, who is to be blamed? Safarnama presents a psychological thriller Wajeh? which is bound to leave you thinking. Join us to watch Smitali Das's take on crime fiction.

Soz: A Ballad of Maladies
Sun Feb 4, 7:30 PM
Lamakaan Programming Team
Come and watch one of the most significant films of our times.

Soz: A Ballad of Maladies - Premier show in Hyderabad
a film byTUSHAR MADHAV & SARVNIK KAUR

Film screening followed by the discussion with the filmmakers.

About the film:
A departure from Kashmir's Orientalist stereotype of a 'paradise' unfolds a transformed cultural landscape of the deeply militarized valley where spiritual ideals of Sufiyana music and traditional poetry metamorphose into political lyricism of modern Hip Hop and Rock. This film is a portrait of those poets, musicians and artists who have turned their art into weapons of resistance during periods of heightened state repression and violence in Indian-administered Kashmir. By evoking the collective memory of a people and unwinding threads of their folk history, the featured artists and musicians in this film negotiate with questions of survival, resistance and freedom – all deeply embroiled in the complex conflict of Kashmir.

NGS Data Analysis INTRO Talk
Sat Feb 10, 11:00 AM
Praharshit Sharma
Low-cost sequencing has grown in demand over the years, and that has driven the development of high-throughput sequencing, also called next generation sequencing (NGS). In a parallel mode, millions of sequences are concurrently produced in a single next-generation sequencing run. NGS has become commonplace in Bioinformatics labs worldwide. Due to the commercialization of various affordable desktop sequencers, NGS has become within the reach of traditional wet-lab biologists. Not since quite long ago, genome-wide scale computational analysis is increasingly being used as a backbone to foster and nurture novel discovery in biomedical research. However, as the avalanche of sequencing output data increase exponentially, the analysis bottle-neck is yet to be solved.

Do come and bring your friends along. ENTRY FREE and OPEN TO ALL!!!
SHORT SYNOPSIS- “If I trap a prey I am a Hunter, if not I remain a beggar!” They are a free spirited nomadic tribe who began their journey many generations ago in the North Western part of the Indian subcontinent. Over time they traveled through and settled in different states of the country.
As they moved, they survived through trapping birds and hunting small game in the forests and selling them in cities and towns along with lucky charms and trinkets. If the trap failed, begging was the next best bet!
The film emerged through a series of community conversations held when we travelled with friends from a settlement in Bannerghatta, Bangalore to other settlements across Karnataka.
Exiled from the forest, reviled by the city, their traditional ways of life outlawed, the Hakki Pikkis share their stories of wit and survival.
Duration of the film is 78 minutes

Daasi - B Narsing Rao Films
Wed Feb 21, 7:30 PM
Lamakaan
Lamakaan hosts a week-long ( 20th to 25th Feb 2018 )film Festival of B.Narasing Rao's classical films. Narsing Rao is one of the pioneers of Art Film Movement in Indian cinema in general and Telugu cinema in particular. His movies have created a special sensation with their sensible thoughts and story. He had made sincere efforts to take Telugu Cinema to the world.

DAASI
(Bonded Women) (1988)
The film that won Rao critical respect is Daasi(Bonded Woman 1988). Set in 20's, it chronicles the unenviable life of a housemaid, who was in custom then, came as a part of dowry to a richZamindar's house. She goes through the back breaking routine of household chores as well as being expected to entertain zamindar and his male guests. When she gets pregnant, she is forced to abort. Narsing Rao, with the help of his cameraman AK Bir, recreates the graceful lifestyle of the privileged in limpid, sensuous images, as when the wife of the zamindaris bathed and coiffeured by her maids, and contrasts it effectively with his bleak suffocating world of the housemaid, whose world is not her own. This film won five National Awards, including the one for Best Actress, won by Archana who played her role with consummate skill.
'Dasi' bagged the Diploma of Merit award at the Moscow International Film Festival in 1989. Due to its meticulous technicality and superior artistic sense, 'Dasi' was considered a milestone not only in Telugu but also in Indian cinema.

Sun Feb 25, 4:00 PM
Cosy Ears
We live in a world where no one has the time to listen. In fact, we ourselves in many cases, keep back from truly listening. Which in turn had enormously affected our need for EXPRESSION!

"Cosy Ears" is a genuine initiative towards addressing these difficulties, by channeling out our inner voices through various mediums. Primarily, by just making an effort to LISTEN!

Our purpose is to provide you a platform where you'll be heard, where you can share your "true feelings" without the fear of being judged and rely on a community of empathetic individuals : )

Contribution: 200/- Per person.

Maa Ooru, & Akruthi - 2 Films
Sun Feb 25, 7:30 PM
Lamakaan
Lamakaan hosts a week-long (20th to 25th Feb 2018) film Festival of B.Narasing Rao's classical films.

MAA OORU (MY VILLAGE) (1988) His documentary 'Maa Ooru'--'My village'-- is remniscent of his early years in a sleepy village, where little changed in the caste ridden society. The documentary received the prestigious Media Wave Award at the International Festival of Visual Arts held in Hungary DOCUMENTARY AWARDS Main Prize- Mediawave, International festival of Visual Arts, 1992 Gyor, Hungary National Award, 1989, For the best Anthropological/ Ethnographic Film, India Silver Nandi, 1989, Government of Andhra Pradesh, India Best Photography- Indian Documentary Producers Association (IDPA), Bombay-1989 PARTICIPATION Kala Ghoda Art Festival, Bombay 1999 Ekotop International Film Festival 1995, Brastislavia Ente Mostra Cinematograficia Internazionale 1993, Viterbo, Italy.

International premier at Munich Film Fest 1989, Germany.

Another documentary 'Akruti' (shape) is about rock formations. Beautifully captured, it brings out Rao's love for nature. It could pass the test of an international geography documentary. It won the Special Jury Award of the International Film Festival of India and also Silver Nandi Award in 1991. Rao says he owes his diverse talents to his rustic origins--the simplistic lifestyle of that rural folk, the pristine nature around, the naive influences, impressions and beliefs of people from the hinterland. In Telugu cinema circles, Rao is called 'The Killer of Kitsch', or one who goes against the tide.

Open to all and entry is Free.

Communal Harmony Film Festival
Wed Feb 28, 6:00 PM
Lamakaan & HoneyBee Media Works
Communal Harmony Film Festival - 28th February to 2nd March 2018
16 years ago on the morning of 27th February 2002 Godhra train burning accident occurred in which 59 people were killed. This event triggered massive violence and pogrom against Muslims in Gujarat, killing 2000 people. Many believe, ‘Godhara train tragedy’ was a conspiracy to attack minorities and consolidate the Hindu vote bank in the state. There were several commissions constituted to investigate Godhra and post Godhra carnage. The reports submitted by the commissions identified several criminals but nothing has been done to book them and bring justice to the victims of the communal riots. Post Godhara many sporadic to regular communal riots have taken place from Muzaffarnagar to Kasgunj etc and they keep happening in the name of cow slaughter, anti nationalism, religion, love jihad etc.
This film festival tries to find the reasons why people of the same country are ready to slit the throats of each other in the name of religion, caste. India is a land of multi cultural diversity and plurality where communities have been living and managed to survive the test of time. Why is it that we are not being able to co-exist with harmony and peace in the recent times? Have we become pawns in the hands of political parties who can trigger riots anytime to gain undue advantage? What is the way out to deal these day to day increasing riots in the country? Can we understand the game of these vested interested and do not fall prey their cheap discourses which only promote hate and vengeance against communities? The aim of the festival is to protect the secular fabric of India and to sensitize masses on the issues of peace and harmony and to wither away the communal agenda of some political parties.
ENTRY TO THE FESTIVAL IS FREE AND OPEN TO ALL!!!
Post screening of the films discussion will follow!
28th Febraury (Wednesday) - 6pm
Film: Ram Ke Naam (In the name of God) (1992) Directed by Anand Patwardhan. Duration: 75 min. Language: Hindi (English subtitles)
Synopsis: The film explores the campaign waged by the Hindu-nationalist Vishva Hindu Parishad to build a Ram temple at the site of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, as well as the communal violence that it triggered. A couple of months after Ram ke Naam was released, VHP activists demolished the Babri Masjid in 1992, provoking further violence. The film earned Patwardhan a wide recognition, and received several national and international awards.
1st March (Thursday) - 4pm
Film: Final Solution (2004) Directed by Rakesh Sharma. Duration: 210 min. Language: Gujrati, Hindi (English subtitles)
Synopsis: Final Solution is a 2004 documentary film directed by Rakesh Sharma concerning the 2002 Gujarat pogrom in which both Hindu and Muslims are targeted in the state of Gujarat by political extremists. In order to rationalize their violence, Hindu extremists had made the claim that their actions were in fact a "spontaneous response" to the Godhra Train Burning incident on 27 February 2002. But as the film proceeds with victims continuing to come forward and share their experiences, a more unsettling possibility seems to emerge- that far from being a spontaneous expression of outrage, the anti-Muslim violence had been carefully coordinated and planned.
An official estimate states that 254 Hindus and 790 Muslims were killed during the riots, with 223 more missing.
The documentary consists mostly of interviews, with both Muslims and Hindus, of multiple generations, and both sexes, with different views regarding the causes, justifications and the actual events of the violence that occurred, as well as their prospects for the future.
1st March (Thursday) – 7.00pm
Film: Kya Hua Iss Shehar Ko? (What Happened to This City?) (1986) Directed by Deepa Dhanraj. Duration: 95 min. Language: Dakhani, Telugu (English subtitles)
Synopsis: A pioneering political work of contemporary relevance: Communal violence between Hindus and Muslims in 1984 forms the starting point for this film, whose complexity lends it immense political force. The film's historical perspective is provided by a thorough commentary, which gives the camera's particular presence the necessary depth and complexity. The mechanisms of political power struggles, the dynamics among those that hold power and the instrumentalisation of economic relations and urban poverty make for a striking analysis, uniquely anticipating the subsequent development of communalist conflicts and the politics of marginalization.

2nd March (Friday) – 4pm
Film: Muzzafarnagar Baaqi Hai (2015) Directed by Nakul Singh Sawhney. Duration: 136 min. Language: Hindi (English subtitles)
Synopsis: In September 2013, Muzaffarnagar and Shamli districts of Western Uttar Pradesh, India, witnessed one of India's worst ever pogrom since Indian Independence. More than 100 people were killed and close to 80,000 people were displaced. In the past, the two districts have seen relative harmony between Muslims and Hindus. What happened this time? 'Muzaffarnagar Baaqi Hai...' (Muzaffarnagar eventually...) straddles between various socio-political-economic dynamics in the areas that have been affected by the violence. This documentary speaks to a cross-section of people. While looking at the immediate violence and it's repercussions, it takes a journey around the many facets of the massacre- the question of a woman's 'honour', which becomes the biggest rallying point to instigate people, the way communal polarisation was orchestrated, the merging of caste identity politics within the larger political fold and the breakdown of the once powerful farmers' union - Bhartiya Kissan Union
2nd March (Friday) – 7.00pm
Film: Who Killed Gandhi (2015) Directed by Anand Ramayya. Duration: 50 min. Language: English
Synopsis: Who Killed Gandhi? is an investigation into assassin Nathuram Vinayak Godse, his mentor Vinakay Damodar Savarkar, and the murder of a man considered by many to be a saint and the father of modern India, Mahatma Gandhi. The story of the characters involved and muliple attempts on Gandhi's life reveal the complexities behind it, which have been cloaked in mystery and are only now coming to light. Gandhi's radical vision of a non-violent, multicultural society was in direct opposition to that of his opponents, inevitably leading to his violent death. What emerges is an epic battle of clashing ideologies set in a formative era that would define the world we live in today.

ADDABAAZI:Make In India EkDhokha
Tue Jan 30, 7:00 PM
Lamakaan Programming Team
As soon as Modi government came to power, it was focused to bring more and more foreign capital into the Indian market. Congress too always looked keen to open up various sectors one by one to bring foreign capital but BJP has taken it many steps forward in last three years. When BJP was in opposition, it opposed the same FDI’s in various sectors but now it is trying to bring more and more of it. What is the reason for this? What will be the impact of this foreign capital infusion into Indian market? BJP has relaxed the labour laws to a very large extent which means the rights of labourers are heavily curtailed. It has also given a lot of impetus for relaxation of rules and procedures for business approvals and has given a clean chit to the businessman for exploitation of various resources like farmland, water bodies, mines etc. BJP is showing a glorious future to everyone by advertising its program of “Make in India”. But with all these major changes, will Make In India benefit the common man and the working class poor of this country? Will such policy enormously benefit the foreign corporates or will it change the lives of the working class people ? Is “make in India” a populist slogan with nothing substantial for the large section of the society?
Lamakaan programming council Is organizing a series of informal discussions and chit-chat under the name “ADDABAAZI”. The topic of Make in India – Ek Dhokha ! is chosen as the first in these series of discussions. So in order to understand the politics and economics around “ Make in India” and discuss it in an informal way, Moderator Mr. Aniket Aalm.
Lamakaan invites all of you on 30th Jan 2018 at 7:00 pm.

Play 1: Shakkar k Paanch Daane

As Rajkumar speaks about his unremarkable life in his nondescript village he mentions the five grains of sugar – the five people – who have stood out in his drab life for reasons stranger than fiction. The five grains become a single life-game that he has been unknowingly playing for years. Eventually he realizes that everyone has a story inside them. Rajkumar has been requested to write a poem for a compilation to be published. Come join us to watch Safarnama’s take on the play 'Shakkar Ke Paanch Daane' written by the playwright Manav Kaul and get introduced to Rajkumar to realize the absurdity of the request.

Written by: Manav Kaul
Cast: Dev Bhardwaj, Chetan Gupta
Time: 7:30 pm

Play 2: Wajeh
Societal changes play a major role in shaping the inner being of a child. These changes either motivate the child to aspire for a brighter future or they force him to go through a psychotic breakdown. It is said, that an individual's personality depends on his upbringing which means one's actions in some way or the other are proportional to these changes. So, if one follows, as you may call it, a henious path, who is to be blamed? Safarnama presents a psychological thriller Wajeh? which is bound to leave you thinking. Join us to watch Smitali Das's take on crime fiction.

Soz: A Ballad of Maladies
Sun Feb 4, 7:30 PM
Lamakaan Programming Team
Come and watch one of the most significant films of our times.

Soz: A Ballad of Maladies - Premier show in Hyderabad
a film byTUSHAR MADHAV & SARVNIK KAUR

Film screening followed by the discussion with the filmmakers.

About the film:
A departure from Kashmir's Orientalist stereotype of a 'paradise' unfolds a transformed cultural landscape of the deeply militarized valley where spiritual ideals of Sufiyana music and traditional poetry metamorphose into political lyricism of modern Hip Hop and Rock. This film is a portrait of those poets, musicians and artists who have turned their art into weapons of resistance during periods of heightened state repression and violence in Indian-administered Kashmir. By evoking the collective memory of a people and unwinding threads of their folk history, the featured artists and musicians in this film negotiate with questions of survival, resistance and freedom – all deeply embroiled in the complex conflict of Kashmir.

NGS Data Analysis INTRO Talk
Sat Feb 10, 11:00 AM
Praharshit Sharma
Low-cost sequencing has grown in demand over the years, and that has driven the development of high-throughput sequencing, also called next generation sequencing (NGS). In a parallel mode, millions of sequences are concurrently produced in a single next-generation sequencing run. NGS has become commonplace in Bioinformatics labs worldwide. Due to the commercialization of various affordable desktop sequencers, NGS has become within the reach of traditional wet-lab biologists. Not since quite long ago, genome-wide scale computational analysis is increasingly being used as a backbone to foster and nurture novel discovery in biomedical research. However, as the avalanche of sequencing output data increase exponentially, the analysis bottle-neck is yet to be solved.

Do come and bring your friends along. ENTRY FREE and OPEN TO ALL!!!
SHORT SYNOPSIS- “If I trap a prey I am a Hunter, if not I remain a beggar!” They are a free spirited nomadic tribe who began their journey many generations ago in the North Western part of the Indian subcontinent. Over time they traveled through and settled in different states of the country.
As they moved, they survived through trapping birds and hunting small game in the forests and selling them in cities and towns along with lucky charms and trinkets. If the trap failed, begging was the next best bet!
The film emerged through a series of community conversations held when we travelled with friends from a settlement in Bannerghatta, Bangalore to other settlements across Karnataka.
Exiled from the forest, reviled by the city, their traditional ways of life outlawed, the Hakki Pikkis share their stories of wit and survival.
Duration of the film is 78 minutes

Chutkan’s Mahabharat
Director: Sankalp Meshram
Chutkan lives with the family of his uncle who make him do all their work. His only escape is his imagination. Things go horribly wrong when Chutkan begins altering reality through his dreams. He changes the Mahabharata and the warring Kauravas and Pandavas now become friends. The drama folks bound by the spell of his dreams, are unable to recite their original lines. Chutkan then changes his bullying cousin into a donkey and few aggressive villagers into geese. When an exorcist is called to cure him, he dreams up the Pandavas to rescue him. They declare that the only Mahabharat that will be performed henceforth would be Chutkan’s Mahabharat in this Best Children’s Film National Award winning film that will delight everyone.

Daasi - B Narsing Rao Films
Wed Feb 21, 7:30 PM
Lamakaan
Lamakaan hosts a week-long ( 20th to 25th Feb 2018 )film Festival of B.Narasing Rao's classical films. Narsing Rao is one of the pioneers of Art Film Movement in Indian cinema in general and Telugu cinema in particular. His movies have created a special sensation with their sensible thoughts and story. He had made sincere efforts to take Telugu Cinema to the world.

DAASI
(Bonded Women) (1988)
The film that won Rao critical respect is Daasi(Bonded Woman 1988). Set in 20's, it chronicles the unenviable life of a housemaid, who was in custom then, came as a part of dowry to a richZamindar's house. She goes through the back breaking routine of household chores as well as being expected to entertain zamindar and his male guests. When she gets pregnant, she is forced to abort. Narsing Rao, with the help of his cameraman AK Bir, recreates the graceful lifestyle of the privileged in limpid, sensuous images, as when the wife of the zamindaris bathed and coiffeured by her maids, and contrasts it effectively with his bleak suffocating world of the housemaid, whose world is not her own. This film won five National Awards, including the one for Best Actress, won by Archana who played her role with consummate skill.
'Dasi' bagged the Diploma of Merit award at the Moscow International Film Festival in 1989. Due to its meticulous technicality and superior artistic sense, 'Dasi' was considered a milestone not only in Telugu but also in Indian cinema.

Another documentary 'Akruti' (shape) is about rock formations. Beautifully captured, it brings out Rao's love for nature. It could pass the test of an international geography documentary. It won the Special Jury Award of the International Film Festival of India and also Silver Nandi Award in 1991. Rao says he owes his diverse talents to his rustic origins--the simplistic lifestyle of that rural folk, the pristine nature around, the naive influences, impressions and beliefs of people from the hinterland. In Telugu cinema circles, Rao is called 'The Killer of Kitsch', or one who goes against the tide.

Communal Harmony Film Festival
Wed Feb 28, 6:00 PM
Lamakaan & HoneyBee Media Works
Communal Harmony Film Festival - 28th February to 2nd March 2018
16 years ago on the morning of 27th February 2002 Godhra train burning accident occurred in which 59 people were killed. This event triggered massive violence and pogrom against Muslims in Gujarat, killing 2000 people. Many believe, ‘Godhara train tragedy’ was a conspiracy to attack minorities and consolidate the Hindu vote bank in the state. There were several commissions constituted to investigate Godhra and post Godhra carnage. The reports submitted by the commissions identified several criminals but nothing has been done to book them and bring justice to the victims of the communal riots. Post Godhara many sporadic to regular communal riots have taken place from Muzaffarnagar to Kasgunj etc and they keep happening in the name of cow slaughter, anti nationalism, religion, love jihad etc.
This film festival tries to find the reasons why people of the same country are ready to slit the throats of each other in the name of religion, caste. India is a land of multi cultural diversity and plurality where communities have been living and managed to survive the test of time. Why is it that we are not being able to co-exist with harmony and peace in the recent times? Have we become pawns in the hands of political parties who can trigger riots anytime to gain undue advantage? What is the way out to deal these day to day increasing riots in the country? Can we understand the game of these vested interested and do not fall prey their cheap discourses which only promote hate and vengeance against communities? The aim of the festival is to protect the secular fabric of India and to sensitize masses on the issues of peace and harmony and to wither away the communal agenda of some political parties.
ENTRY TO THE FESTIVAL IS FREE AND OPEN TO ALL!!!
Post screening of the films discussion will follow!
28th Febraury (Wednesday) - 6pm
Film: Ram Ke Naam (In the name of God) (1992) Directed by Anand Patwardhan. Duration: 75 min. Language: Hindi (English subtitles)
Synopsis: The film explores the campaign waged by the Hindu-nationalist Vishva Hindu Parishad to build a Ram temple at the site of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, as well as the communal violence that it triggered. A couple of months after Ram ke Naam was released, VHP activists demolished the Babri Masjid in 1992, provoking further violence. The film earned Patwardhan a wide recognition, and received several national and international awards.
1st March (Thursday) - 4pm
Film: Final Solution (2004) Directed by Rakesh Sharma. Duration: 210 min. Language: Gujrati, Hindi (English subtitles)
Synopsis: Final Solution is a 2004 documentary film directed by Rakesh Sharma concerning the 2002 Gujarat pogrom in which both Hindu and Muslims are targeted in the state of Gujarat by political extremists. In order to rationalize their violence, Hindu extremists had made the claim that their actions were in fact a "spontaneous response" to the Godhra Train Burning incident on 27 February 2002. But as the film proceeds with victims continuing to come forward and share their experiences, a more unsettling possibility seems to emerge- that far from being a spontaneous expression of outrage, the anti-Muslim violence had been carefully coordinated and planned.
An official estimate states that 254 Hindus and 790 Muslims were killed during the riots, with 223 more missing.
The documentary consists mostly of interviews, with both Muslims and Hindus, of multiple generations, and both sexes, with different views regarding the causes, justifications and the actual events of the violence that occurred, as well as their prospects for the future.
1st March (Thursday) – 7.00pm
Film: Kya Hua Iss Shehar Ko? (What Happened to This City?) (1986) Directed by Deepa Dhanraj. Duration: 95 min. Language: Dakhani, Telugu (English subtitles)
Synopsis: A pioneering political work of contemporary relevance: Communal violence between Hindus and Muslims in 1984 forms the starting point for this film, whose complexity lends it immense political force. The film's historical perspective is provided by a thorough commentary, which gives the camera's particular presence the necessary depth and complexity. The mechanisms of political power struggles, the dynamics among those that hold power and the instrumentalisation of economic relations and urban poverty make for a striking analysis, uniquely anticipating the subsequent development of communalist conflicts and the politics of marginalization.

2nd March (Friday) – 4pm
Film: Muzzafarnagar Baaqi Hai (2015) Directed by Nakul Singh Sawhney. Duration: 136 min. Language: Hindi (English subtitles)
Synopsis: In September 2013, Muzaffarnagar and Shamli districts of Western Uttar Pradesh, India, witnessed one of India's worst ever pogrom since Indian Independence. More than 100 people were killed and close to 80,000 people were displaced. In the past, the two districts have seen relative harmony between Muslims and Hindus. What happened this time? 'Muzaffarnagar Baaqi Hai...' (Muzaffarnagar eventually...) straddles between various socio-political-economic dynamics in the areas that have been affected by the violence. This documentary speaks to a cross-section of people. While looking at the immediate violence and it's repercussions, it takes a journey around the many facets of the massacre- the question of a woman's 'honour', which becomes the biggest rallying point to instigate people, the way communal polarisation was orchestrated, the merging of caste identity politics within the larger political fold and the breakdown of the once powerful farmers' union - Bhartiya Kissan Union
2nd March (Friday) – 7.00pm
Film: Who Killed Gandhi (2015) Directed by Anand Ramayya. Duration: 50 min. Language: English
Synopsis: Who Killed Gandhi? is an investigation into assassin Nathuram Vinayak Godse, his mentor Vinakay Damodar Savarkar, and the murder of a man considered by many to be a saint and the father of modern India, Mahatma Gandhi. The story of the characters involved and muliple attempts on Gandhi's life reveal the complexities behind it, which have been cloaked in mystery and are only now coming to light. Gandhi's radical vision of a non-violent, multicultural society was in direct opposition to that of his opponents, inevitably leading to his violent death. What emerges is an epic battle of clashing ideologies set in a formative era that would define the world we live in today.

The documentary consists mostly of interviews, with both Muslims and Hindus, of multiple generations, and both sexes, with different views regarding the causes, justifications and the actual events of the violence that occurred, as well as their prospects for the future. 1st March (Thursday) – 7.00pm Film: Kya Hua Iss Shehar Ko? (What Happened to This City?) (1986) Directed by Deepa Dhanraj. Duration: 95 min. Language: Dakhani, Telugu (English subtitles) Synopsis: A pioneering political work of contemporary relevance: Communal violence between Hindus and Muslims in 1984 forms the starting point for this film, whose complexity lends it immense political force. The film's historical perspective is provided by a thorough commentary, which gives the camera's particular presence the necessary depth and complexity. The mechanisms of political power struggles, the dynamics among those that hold power and the instrumentalisation of economic relations and urban poverty make for a striking analysis, uniquely anticipating the subsequent development of communalist conflicts and the politics of marginalization.

2nd March (Friday) – 4pm Film: Muzzafarnagar Baaqi Hai (2015) Directed by Nakul Singh Sawhney. Duration: 136 min. Language: Hindi (English subtitles) Synopsis: In September 2013, Muzaffarnagar and Shamli districts of Western Uttar Pradesh, India, witnessed one of India's worst ever pogrom since Indian Independence. More than 100 people were killed and close to 80,000 people were displaced. In the past, the two districts have seen relative harmony between Muslims and Hindus. What happened this time? 'Muzaffarnagar Baaqi Hai...' (Muzaffarnagar eventually...) straddles between various socio-political-economic dynamics in the areas that have been affected by the violence. This documentary speaks to a cross-section of people. While looking at the immediate violence and it's repercussions, it takes a journey around the many facets of the massacre- the question of a woman's 'honour', which becomes the biggest rallying point to instigate people, the way communal polarisation was orchestrated, the merging of caste identity politics within the larger political fold and the breakdown of the once powerful farmers' union - Bhartiya Kissan Union 2nd March (Friday) – 7.00pm Film: Who Killed Gandhi (2015) Directed by Anand Ramayya. Duration: 50 min. Language: English Synopsis: Who Killed Gandhi? is an investigation into assassin Nathuram Vinayak Godse, his mentor Vinakay Damodar Savarkar, and the murder of a man considered by many to be a saint and the father of modern India, Mahatma Gandhi. The story of the characters involved and muliple attempts on Gandhi's life reveal the complexities behind it, which have been cloaked in mystery and are only now coming to light. Gandhi's radical vision of a non-violent, multicultural society was in direct opposition to that of his opponents, inevitably leading to his violent death. What emerges is an epic battle of clashing ideologies set in a formative era that would define the world we live in today.
