Remembering Abbas Kiarostami
Wed Jun 19, 7:00 PM
Lamakaan
After the sweltering summer month of May, we move to the monsoon month of June, where the freshness and fragrance of air and rain fill the atmosphere. Let the same freshness continue in our Wednesday screenings at Lamakaan as we remember one of the most iconic names in the world of cinema, Abbas Kiarostami.

Abbas Kiarostami (Persian: عباس کیارستمی (22 June 1940 – 4 July 2016) was an Iranian film director, screenwriter, poet, photographer, and film producer. An active filmmaker from 1970, Kiarostami had been involved in the production of over forty films, including shorts and documentaries. Kiarostami attained critical acclaim for directing the Koker trilogy (1987–1994), Close-Up (1990), The Wind Will Carry Us (1999), and Taste of Cherry (1997), which was awarded the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival that year. In later works, Certified Copy (2010) and Like Someone in Love (2012), he filmed for the first time outside Iran: in Italy and Japan, respectively. His films Where Is the Friend's Home? (1987), Close-Up and The Wind Will Carry Us were ranked among the 100 best foreign films in a 2018 critics' poll by BBC Culture. Close-Up was also ranked one of the 50 greatest movies of all time in the famous decennial Sight & Sound poll conducted in 2012.

Kiarostami had worked extensively as a screenwriter, film editor, art director, and producer and had designed credit titles and publicity material. He was also a poet, photographer, painter, illustrator, and graphic designer. He was part of a generation of filmmakers in the Iranian New Wave. This Persian cinema movement started in the late 1960s and emphasized poetic dialogue and allegorical storytelling dealing with political and philosophical issues.

Kiarostami had a reputation for using child protagonists, documentary-style narrative films,[9] for stories in rural villages, and conversations that unfold inside cars, using stationary mounted cameras. He is also known for his use of Persian poetry in the dialogue, titles, and themes of his films. Kiarostami's films contain a notable degree of ambiguity, an unusual mixture of simplicity and complexity, and often a mix of fictional and documentary elements. The concepts of change and continuity and the themes of life and death play a major role in Kiarostami's works.

Film Title: LIKE SOMEONE IN LOVE | 2012 | 109 Mins | France & Japan | Japanese Language with English Subtitles

About the film: Like Someone in Love is a French-Japanese drama film written and directed by Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami, starring Rin Takanashi, Tadashi Okuno, and Ryō Kase. It was his final film to be released in his lifetime. The France-Japan co-production competed for the Palme d'Or at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

Whither Fascism?
Sat Jun 22, 2:00 PM
In Defense of Reason
After the electoral setback of the fascist forces in the Loksabha elections, many had hoped that fascism would be less aggressive and the attacks on civil and democratic rights would come to halt. However, the preparation to prosecute author Arundhati Roy and Kashmir-based academic Sheikh Showkat Hussain under the UAPA indicates that such hopes are misplaced. Under these new circumstances it’s important to understand what is going to be the strategy of fascism in Modi 3.0 regime. The history bears enough testimony to the fact that fascists are more aggressive in the aftermath of electoral setbacks. Any strategy of anti-fascist resistance must take this into account. In this context we are organising this discussion. We invite all the justice-loving people of Hyderabad to participate in this important discussion.

DBA Queers Community Building
Sat Jun 22, 4:00 PM
Niyut
Care, resting, and community building are essential for the well-being of Dalit, Bahujan, and Adivasi (DBA) queers, who navigate the intersecting oppressions of casteism and heteronormativity. Self-care and rest are acts of resistance for DBA queers, offering necessary reprieves from the systemic discrimination they face. Creating spaces that prioritize their mental and physical health helps in fostering resilience and empowerment. Community building among DBA queers is equally crucial, as it provides a supportive network where individuals can share experiences, celebrate cultural heritage, and find solidarity. Through collective care practices and mutual support, DBA queer communities can strengthen their identities, challenge oppressive structures, and advocate for social justice. These efforts not only enhance individual well-being but also build a more inclusive and affirming community, where DBA queers can thrive and lead transformative change. We will read and discuss material on care, resting and community-building.

JIBANANDA
Sun Jun 30, 8:00 PM
SHUDRKA HYDERABAD
Jibanananda Das (1899–1954), who is
reckoned by many as the most influential figure of the post-Tagorean era in the
Bengali literary world, played a leading role in introducing modernist elements in
Bengali poetry. His unorthodox poetic style, language, and images drawn
equally from mythology, history, and everyday life, though at first received unfavourable
opinions from the critics, in due course proved to exercise tremendous influence both on
the readers and the emerging poets. Today he is placed among the most significant poets
ever born in Bengal. The modern American scholar of Bengali language and literature,
Clinton B. Seely, has called Das “Bengal’s most cherished poet since Rabindranath
Tagore” (Seely, A Poet Apart 9).Shudrka Hyderabad celebrates his 125th birth anniversary year through a Bengali play written and directed by Swapan Mondal.

PHIRIBAR POTH NAI (NO WAY OUT!)
Sun Jun 30, 8:00 PM
SHUDRKA HYDERABAD
Our play “Phiribar Poth Nai” (No Way Out!) is a work less concerned with recounting the episodes of Jibanananda Das' life than with contextualizing an oeuvre that grew more opaque over time. We link Jibanananda's evolution from a poet of wonderment and celebrant of the Bengali landscape to a weaver of conundrums with the tensions of the Second World War, followed by the struggle for independence and the partition of Bengal. We connect and contrast poems of like titles written at different times or for different publications, and elucidate stylistic and lexical idiosyncrasies by cross-referencing extensively Jibanananda's verse with his fiction, essays, and correspondence, and the comments they evoked from critics and associates. Shudrka Hyderabad believes that Jibanananda deserves more critical acclaim as a truly modern poet than even Tagore and hence pays tribute to him on his 125th birth year.

Community building among DBA queers is equally crucial, as it provides a supportive network where individuals can share experiences, celebrate cultural heritage, and find solidarity. Through collective care practices and mutual support, DBA queer communities can strengthen their identities, challenge oppressive structures, and advocate for social justice. These efforts not only enhance individual well-being but also build a more inclusive and affirming community, where DBA queers can thrive and lead transformative change. We will read and discuss material on care, resting and community-building.

JIBANANDA
Sun Jun 30, 8:00 PM
SHUDRKA HYDERABAD
Jibanananda Das (1899–1954), who is
reckoned by many as the most influential figure of the post-Tagorean era in the
Bengali literary world, played a leading role in introducing modernist elements in
Bengali poetry. His unorthodox poetic style, language, and images drawn
equally from mythology, history, and everyday life, though at first received unfavourable
opinions from the critics, in due course proved to exercise tremendous influence both on
the readers and the emerging poets. Today he is placed among the most significant poets
ever born in Bengal. The modern American scholar of Bengali language and literature,
Clinton B. Seely, has called Das “Bengal’s most cherished poet since Rabindranath
Tagore” (Seely, A Poet Apart 9).Shudrka Hyderabad celebrates his 125th birth anniversary year through a Bengali play written and directed by Swapan Mondal.

PHIRIBAR POTH NAI (NO WAY OUT!)
Sun Jun 30, 8:00 PM
SHUDRKA HYDERABAD
Our play “Phiribar Poth Nai” (No Way Out!) is a work less concerned with recounting the episodes of Jibanananda Das' life than with contextualizing an oeuvre that grew more opaque over time. We link Jibanananda's evolution from a poet of wonderment and celebrant of the Bengali landscape to a weaver of conundrums with the tensions of the Second World War, followed by the struggle for independence and the partition of Bengal. We connect and contrast poems of like titles written at different times or for different publications, and elucidate stylistic and lexical idiosyncrasies by cross-referencing extensively Jibanananda's verse with his fiction, essays, and correspondence, and the comments they evoked from critics and associates. Shudrka Hyderabad believes that Jibanananda deserves more critical acclaim as a truly modern poet than even Tagore and hence pays tribute to him on his 125th birth year.
