Against the background of an overall decline of US revenues from foreign films, Europe as the dominant source  of such productions has been surpassed by Asian Countries.

Chronicle of a Death

Director: Gautam Sen.
The short film narrates the story of a pond died on account of negligence and encroachment by people in the name of development, ignoring the utility of sustenance of natural resources. Without any spoken word and in the form of a monologue, it portrays the journey in visual terms from the lively days of the pond, the decadence and its ultimate death caused by a huge construction developed within its proximity.

Ekjon Jhumur

Director: Gautam Sen.
Ekjon Jhumur (Jhumur, the girl) is the story of a self-respectful, independent-minded young lady of today in her late twenties. Her consciousness of life, morality and her own entity are intermingled with theater. The undaunted spirit places her above the nitty-gritty of daily life. She seeks emancipation through her medium of self-expression - the theater. The patriarchal society seems not to be tolerant with her sense of emancipation. It tries to delimit her within the conventional notion of womanhood. There's only women's fight against conventional society. A fight - Jhumur's own. Her ammunition - her challenge - the theater.

L.A. Indian festival wrap: Bollywood in Hollywood; Khan, Khan, and Khan, inc.

Khan is an extremely popular Islamic family name in India where, for the past twenty years, three Khans --Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, and Amir Khan -- have ruled the leading-man roost in Bollywood, commanding sky-high rupee guarantees up-front and wielding enough power to dictate the terms of the films they sign up for. Having one of these Khans in your film is close to an ironclad guarantee of box-office returns in the dog-eat-dog competitive world of Bombay filmdom, and the competition for th...

Life Lessons At Palm Beach FF

user
  TEN STORIES TALL (David Garrett, USA) It was perhaps an unconscious choice, but several of the films I caught at this year’s Palm Beach International Film Festival dealt with the sense of fragility and vulnerability that is at the core of human experience. In these films, characters face the realities of mortality and unfulfilled dreams with the kind of courage and grace that made a deep impression on audiences. If films teach life lessons, and I wholeheartedly t...

But Ben Kingley and Max Van Sydow have at last found their ecological niches in cinema history -- as -- uncompromising ultimate GHOULS!

The Other Indian Cinema in Berlin

  While Bollywood is among the most recognizable cinema genres in the world (and rivals Hollywood in its prolific popularity), there is another Indian cinema, of a more independent stripe, that is emerging. The Berlinale is focusing on these groundbreaking films that tackle serious and poetic subjects, with nary a dancing girl in sight.
