THE OTHER SONG, 2 Hours

By Saba Dewan

 

In 1935, Rasoolan bai, the well known singer from Varanasi, recorded for the Gramaphone a thumri that she would never sing again- ‘Lagat job anwa ma chot, phool gendwa na maar' (My breasts are wonded, don't throw flowers at me). A variation of her more famous song -  ‘Lagat Karejwa ma chot, phool gendwa na maar' (My heart is  wounded, don't throw flowers at me), the 1935 recording, never to be repeated, faded from public memory and eventually got lost. More than seventy years later the film travels through Varanasi, Lucknow and Muzzafarpur in search of the forgotten thumri. Through the story of this lost thumri sung by Rasoolan Bai, whose career as a performer overlapped with significant transitions in both the practice of music and public female sexualities, the film examines the major shifts in the hi story of the tradition.

OUT OF THIN AIR, 50 minutes

By Shabani Hassanwalia and Samreen Farooqui

 

‘Out of Thin Air' is the story of one of the most surreal and hostile landscapes in the world. This is the story of Ladakh, not through the postcards that tourists often see, but through the subterranean, local film movement that has taken such strong root here in the last six years, that it has become a voice of the people. Today, taxi drivers, grocery store owners, cops and monks are producers, directors, camerapersons and actors of one of the youngest, and most dynamic, local film industries in the world.
