Description

Usurp in collaboration with Day For Night presents a short season of contemporary art-house & new wave films from India to mark 70 years of independence/partition. Full synopsis and trailers on our website: www.usurp.org.uk

Fri 17 Nov 7:30pm
Court (Chaitanya Tamhane, 2014) 116 minutes. Court - winner of top prizes at the Venice and Mumbai film festivals is a quietly angry, absurdist portrait of injustice. A funny-cautionary picture of justice at work in Mumbai... this fly on this wall has keen eyes, keen hearing, a keen intelligence— Financial Times.

Sat 18 Nov 7:30pm
Miss Lovely (Ashim Ahluwalia, 2012) 110 minutes. “Something new in Indian filmmaking, neither Bollywood nor traditional art cinema, the pic provides a unique, immersive experience…one that owes as much to docu and experimental filmmakers as to Scorsese, Welles and von Sternberg, plunging viewers into the characters’ social milieu”. Variety.

Sun 19 Nov 2:30pm matinee
I Am Kalam (Nila Madhab Panda, 2011) 87 minutes. “It’s inspirational, intelligent, topical and entertaining too. More importantly, it brims over with heart and soul, leaving no one untouched with its simple message of providing an equal opportunity — specially the right to education — to every child in the world” Times Of India.

Sun 19 Nov 7:30pm
Dreaming Lhasa (Tenzing Sonam/Ritu Sarin, 2005) 90 minutes. “Dreaming Lhasa is a fine example of how feature films can be used to deliver urgent political messages” New York Times.

Fri 24 Nov 7:30pm
The Rat Trap (Adoor Gopalakrishnan, 1981) 121 minutes

Sat 25 Nov 7:30pm
The Violin Player (Bauddhayan Mukherji, 2016) 72 minutes

Sun 26 Nov 7:30pm
War and Peace (Anand Patwardan, 2002) 135 minutes. "Patwardhan is a true 'auteur' who makes films from his own convictions rather than on commission; who spends his own money and dedicates years of his own time to the making of a movie that becomes a personal statement - a statement that he hopes will be a force for change". BBC Radio Four.
