Jun 7-11: Film Fest on Water 
"Voices from the Waters 2007, 2nd International Film Festival on Water

7th to 11th June 2007 10am to 8pm at Gurunanak Bhavan, Bangalore.

Arghyam- safe, sustainable water for all, Bangalore Film Society and Films for Freedom, Bangalore in collaboration with Water Journeys- Forum for the Fundamental Right to Water, Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, Ithaca College (FLEFF) and Urban Research Centre are proud to present the second edition of the International Film Festival on Water titled 'Voices from the Waters 2007'.

The festival, while attempting to cast light on the looming global water crisis is a vibrant, colorful celebration of 'water' in all its liquid blue glory. Featuring a stirring selection of full length films, short films, animation and documentaries - from cinema classics of Ray, Sathyu and Kasarvalli to early documentaries of Jahnu Barua and Aribam Shyam Sharma to much-acclaimed and groundbreaking new works from film makers all across the globe, the festival attempts to connect the public with everyday, mundane 'water' as the source of all life, as the platform for civilization and society, as a precious natural gift, as culture and as pure poetry and as a scarce resource increasingly commodified. The festival will also serve as a platform to the voices of grassroots level water activists from Bihar, Kerala, Rajasthan, Bengal and all across the nation who will narrate evocatively, testimonies from lives lived and spent in the name of water. Film-makers, present at the screening of their films will interact with the audience and share their experience. The four days of the film festival and storytelling will culminate with a conference which will allow the general public, film-makers, policy markers and grassroots level activists to interact on a common platform.

The Festival Conferences will focus on water equity and ecological issues. Water Equity will address the issues of how the poor will access safe, potable water for their daily necessities as well as for their livelihood, while ecological issues primarily will focus on management of water resources and sustainability.

Since its conception, the second edition of 'Voices from the Waters' has been generating a lot of national and international interest. We have received over 140 films from 40 countries across the globe for the 2007 edition. We invite you to participate in this celebration of life itself and lend further color, noise and depth to the festival. The festival venue provides you with an opportunity to exhibit/share your publications, films, songs, posters on the water issues. The space for the stalls will be provided free of cost. (on first come, first serve basis)

May19/20: Butter and Mashed Banana performance 
"Butter and Mashed Banana will be performed at Ranga Shankara on the
19th and 20th of May.
19th-7:30 PM
20th-3:30 PM(matinee) and 7:30 PM

Butter and Mashed Banana is written and Directed by Ajay Krishnan
Language: English
Duration: 1 hour , 05 minute-NO INTERVAL
Tickets: Rs. 100/-

Butter and Mashed Banana won 5 thespo awards in 2005, including "best
new original writing", "Best play" and "Director Director".
The play has since performed at the Prithvi theatre festival in
November 2006, the Mumbai Kala Ghoda Festival, The Open Space Festival
in Pune.
Butter and Mashed Banana has also been invited to perform at The Hindu
Theatre Festival in Chennai in August 2007.

Synopsis: Butter and Mashed Banana is a play where there are no real
characters, motivations or moments of emotional truth. It goes from
three actors in real life to three characters on stage caught up in a
frenzy of activity ranging from International best sellers to instant
stardom and conflicting ideologies. The story is about a boy. But soon
it stops being about a boy. And soon after that it's about the boy
again, except by now he's turned into a world-famous writer who's
facing rabid opposition to anything he tries to say and do. And, there
is music and movement all the while, tangentially taking digs at
ideology and censorship, among other things.

Cast: Gulshan Devaiah, Vinod Ravindran and Vivek Madan
Music: Live by Ajay Krishnan
Lights: Sujay Saple
For telebooking of tickets: Call: 9845209716 "

"Oottukkadu Venkata Kavi was not merely a sahityakarta (lyricist) but a musician of high caliber. He has covered a wide range of musical forms right from kriti to kavadichindu.

He has revealed his adeptness in many musical forms like kriti, tillana, kavadichindu. He has made use of different types of kritis apart from the conventional ones with Pallavi, Anupallavi, and Charana.

Synopsis - It is said that Gandhiji became Indian in South Africa. Now more than a hundred years after Gandhiji left South Africa to pursue a life of Indian nationalist politics, South Africans of Indian origin continue the quest to define themselves and who they are. Dirty Laundry is a travel essay and historical journey that offers a glimpse of this struggle for self-definition and cultural identity in today’s world, from the role of South African Indians as revolutionaries in the anti-apartheid struggle upto the activities of the present. This film is part of a series known as ‘The Politics of Memory’ in the Indian Diaspora.

CONTINUOUS JOURNEY
Directed by Ali Kazimi
Duration: 87minutes
on Saturday, 12th May 2007

at Centre for Film and Drama (CFD), 5th Floor, Sona Towers, Millers Road, Bangalore

Synopsis - In 1914 the Komagata Maru, a vessel carrying 376 passengers from British India, became the first ship transporting migrants to be turned away by Canada. During the two-month detention in the harbour, Canadian authorities drove the passengers to the brink of thirst and starvation. The affair exposed the British Empire’s myths of equality, fairplay and justice, and became a turning point in the freedom struggle in India. Continuous Journey is a multilayered film essay that interweaves photographs, archival newsreels, home movies and official documents to unravel a complex and little known incident.

THE LEGEND OF FAT MAMA
Directed by Rafeeq Ellias
Duration: 23 minutes
on Sunday, 13th May 2007
at 6.30pm
at Centre for Film and Drama (CFD), 5th Floor, Sona Towers, Millers Road, Bangalore

Synopsis - This is a bittersweet story of the Chinese community in Calcutta, intertwined with the nostalgic journey in search of a woman who once made the most delicious noodles in the city’s Chinatown district. Thriving street food, disappearing family-run eateries, mahjong clubs, a Chinese printing press that has shut down and its handwritten counterpart that continues to deliver the news every morning, and the first all woman dragon dance group preparing for the Chinese New Year make up the Chinese heritage in Calcutta. The Chinese here were pained and hurt by the treatment of their people in the aftermath of the Indo-China war, causing them to migrate to Canada and elsewhere.

Screenings will be open to MEMBERS ONLY. Please come in a little early and register.

Rangashankara May'07 Schedule 

Hi, 
It will be Drama in Afternoon this May! Yes, quite literally. Matinees on Sunday afternoons have caught up well among theatre enthusiasts of Bangalore. While we have run matinees on all days of our annual theatre fest, it has been sporadic during the rest of the year.
May '07 will change that with a matinee every Sunday. Mallinatha Dhyana, One Day in Aashadha, Butter and Mashed Bananas, and Sankramana will perform at 3:30 PM on their Sundays in addition to the regular 7:30 PM show. Here's to a new trend in theatre!
Our much awaited Mango Party happens on Sun, May 20th. Everybody is welcome to this bash – bring a kilo of an interesting variety of mango and eat as much as you can from the pool! Just CELEBRATE the King of Fruits.
Ten plays in Kannada, four in English and 31 shows is the equation for May. Many of the old favorites return for re-runs – Gumma Banda Gumma, Mysooru Mallige, Butter and Mashed Bananas (this play recently ran to packed and appreciative houses in Mumbai), Chandrahasa and Sankramana (which opened in April and is all set to be another super hit from Sanket and Surendranath) are the front-runners. Natraj Honnavalli's treatment of Mallinatha Dhyana is said to be refreshing and interesting. B V Rajaram is quietly premiering his Mandra, based on S L Byrappa's eponymous novel dealing with complex relationships.
For the Ranga Shankara Café, Anju Sudarshan and her team are gearing up for a "Combo-meals and a mango month".
See you at RS!
