The Name of the Disease
The Name of the Disease is a documentary about the no-holds barred world
of healthcare in rural North India, a world where anyone can be a doctor,
a world where everyone has a theory and a solution, frequently involving
ghosts, hypodermic needles and large sums of money. Narrated entirely
through the voices of insiders, but building on years of research in the
area, the film combines humor and tragedy to build an image of a people
struggling to come to terms with the hold of their tradition and the
seductive promises of modernity.
Running Time: 47 minutes; Color: Documentary.

Aug 15: Kamala, a play by Vijay Tendulkar
Silver blue Productions presents
Kamala- A play by Vijay Tendulkar on 15th August at CFD.
Vijay Tendulkars Kamala is one of those few theater masterpieces that appeal to just about anyone, because it touches on virtually all our lives. Kamala is an indictment of male society in which women are mere stepping-stones in a man's quest for power and fame.
For those unfamiliar with the background of the play, it was based on journalist Ashwini Sarin's path-breaking investigative series in 1981 on the flesh trade in Madhya Pradesh. Sarin bought the woman, Kamala, for Rs. 2,300. The journalist then wrote a series of articles exposing the prostitution trade and involvement of bigwigs in politics and police in early 1981. Presented by Renegade Amateur Theater Society.-- http://www.silverblue.co.in
