Hyderabad Liberation Day?
Sat Sep 17, 8:00 PM
Lamakaan & Yunus Lasania
Hyderabad Liberation Day: Annexation or merger? How the erstwhile state of Hyderabad was annexed to India in 1948.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-run central government announced that it would organize a year-long ‘celebration’ marking ‘Hyderabad Liberation Day’ starting from September 17, the day in 1948 when the erstwhile state of Hyderabad, run by its Nizam, Osman Ali Khan, was annexed to India.

The Indian army was sent by the Centre on September 13, 1948, after negotiations with the last Nizam Mir Osman Ali Khan fell through after independence. The state was formally annexed to India on September 17, and the event was preceded by political unrest and violence inflicted by the Razakar militia.

More importantly, the annexation is also a painful memory for many Muslims in the Hyderabad state, given that there was a massacre of thousands from the community after the Indian army took over the state. The atrocities against Muslims are well documented in the Sunderlal Committee (set up by India’s first PM Jawaharlal Nehru) to look into the atrocities of Muslims) report.


But what is the truth of Operation Polo? To understand that, Lamakaan will organize a talk on September 17 detailing the incident. BK Gupta, a teenager in 1948 in Karimnagar district, will be the chief guest and speaker. A memorial will also be held for the late Burgula Narsing Rao, a former CPI member who was one of the core student leaders of his time in 1948.

Non Fungible Tokens.
Or simply NFTs.

You must have heard these words buzzing through the covid lockdowns. Couple of other words too: Crypto and Bitcoin?

What’s common between all of these? And most importantly, how’s it going to change the field of art, art practices, artistic expressions and the world at large. That’s where NFTs come into picture.

As someone who’s entire artistic journey has been centered around the sense of being independent, seeking maximum control on his works, Amar stumbled upon blockchain technology that gradually made him understand NFTs and the power of web3 ecosystem. He sees a great potential in it for artists, curators and any independent professional or group. Through his talk he aims to kindle a discussion and build a community by sharing his knowledge and making others connect.

Come let’s ponder over the possibilities of decentralisation that promises to revoutionalise the way humans are going to interact with each other in the near future.

For a focussed engagement the number of participants will be limited to 20-25. Interested ones would be required to fill in a google form: https://forms.gle/pjNdm98pezT9gWrWA. Upon shortlisting, you will be sent an invite.

Come, let’s talk about NFTs.

A Tribute to Jean-Luc Godard
Wed Oct 5, 7:30 PM
Lamakaan
Lamakaan remembers Jean-Luc Godard and pays tribute to the iconoclastic master director of French New Wave cinema, by screening some of his critically acclaimed films and discussing about his intensely free art.


About Jean-Luc Godard: Jean-Luc Godard - 3 December 1930 – 13 September 2022) was a French-Swiss film director, screenwriter, and film critic. He rose to prominence as a pioneer of the French New Wave film movement of the 1960s, alongside such filmmakers as François Truffaut, Agnès Varda, Éric Rohmer, and Jacques Demy. He was arguably the most influential French filmmaker of the post-war era. According to AllMovie, his work "revolutionized the motion picture form" through its experimentation with narrative, continuity, sound, and camerawork.[2] His most acclaimed films include Breathless (1960), Vivre sa vie (1962), Contempt (1963), Band of Outsiders (1964), Alphaville (1965), Pierrot le Fou (1965), Masculin Féminin (1966), Weekend (1967), and Goodbye to Language (2014).

During his early career as a film critic for the influential magazine Cahiers du Cinéma, Godard criticised mainstream French cinema's "Tradition of Quality", which de-emphasised innovation and experimentation.



Film Title: Breathless | 1960 | 90 minutes | French subtitled in English


About the film: Breathless (French: À bout de souffle, lit. 'Out of Breath') is a 1960 French crime drama film written and directed by Jean-Luc Godard. It stars Jean-Paul Belmondo as a wandering criminal named Michel, and Jean Seberg as his American girlfriend Patricia. The film was Godard's first feature-length work and represented Belmondo's breakthrough as an actor.

Breathless is an influential example of French New Wave (nouvelle vague) cinema. Along with François Truffaut's The 400 Blows and Alain Resnais's Hiroshima mon amour, both released a year earlier, it brought international attention to new styles of French filmmaking. At the time, Breathless attracted much attention for its bold visual style, which included then unconventional use of jump cuts.

Upon its initial release in France, the film attracted over two million viewers. It has since been considered one of the best films ever made, appearing in Sight & Sound magazine's decennial polls of filmmakers and critics on the subject on multiple occasions. In May 2010, a fully restored version of the film was released in the United States to coincide with the film's 50th anniversary.

Breathless is an influential example of French New Wave (nouvelle vague) cinema. Along with François Truffaut's The 400 Blows and Alain Resnais's Hiroshima mon amour, both released a year earlier, it brought international attention to new styles of French filmmaking. At the time, Breathless attracted much attention for its bold visual style, which included then unconventional use of jump cuts.

Upon its initial release in France, the film attracted over two million viewers. It has since been considered one of the best films ever made, appearing in Sight & Sound magazine's decennial polls of filmmakers and critics on the subject on multiple occasions. In May 2010, a fully restored version of the film was released in the United States to coincide with the film's 50th anniversary.

A Tribute to Jean-Luc Godard
Wed Oct 12, 6:30 PM
Lamakaan
Lamakaan remembers Jean-Luc Godard and pays tribute to the iconoclastic master director of French New Wave cinema, by screening some of his critically acclaimed films and discussing about his intensely free art.

About Jean-Luc Godard: Jean-Luc Godard - 3 December 1930 – 13 September 2022) was a French-Swiss film director, screenwriter, and film critic. He rose to prominence as a pioneer of the French New Wave film movement of the 1960s, alongside such filmmakers as François Truffaut, Agnès Varda, Éric Rohmer, and Jacques Demy. He was arguably the most influential French filmmaker of the post-war era. According to AllMovie, his work "revolutionized the motion picture form" through its experimentation with narrative, continuity, sound, and camerawork.[2] His most acclaimed films include Breathless (1960), Vivre sa vie (1962), Contempt (1963), Band of Outsiders (1964), Alphaville (1965), Pierrot le Fou (1965), Masculin Féminin (1966), Weekend (1967), and Goodbye to Language (2014).

During his early career as a film critic for the influential magazine Cahiers du Cinéma, Godard criticised mainstream French cinema's "Tradition of Quality", which de-emphasised innovation and experimentation.
