Aug 8-14: German Film Week @ MMB 


"Bangalore to host German Film Week
- with a spectacular selection of must-watch movies

Bangalore, July 26, 2008: The long-awaited German Film Week is all set to wow film fans in the City in an action-packed week, starting August 8th 2008 at Lavanya Theatre on St. John's Road.

This year the German Film Week from August 8th to 14th 2008, is being organised by the Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan in collaboration with German Films, the German national information and advisory centre for the promotion of German films worldwide and Suchitra Film Society, Bangalore.

The Festival would not have been possible without the enthusiasm of the main sponsor, Siemens Information Systems Ltd. and the support of Mercedes-Benz Research and Development India.

Talking about the Festival, Dr. Evelin Hust, Director of the Festival and of the Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan says: "The Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan has established a tradition of bringing first-rate German films in all genres to Bangalore - features, documentaries, shorts, packages and children's films. This engagement
over the years culminated in the three highly successful and popular Indo-German Film Festivals that took place in 2003, 2004 and 2006. The German Film Week is the logical successor to the Indo-German Festivals,  now that the Bengalooru International Film Festival (BIFFES) has taken its place on the City's annual cultural map. This year's palette of award-winning films is an exciting blend of thought-provoking themes and pure entertainment, with something appropriate for every age group. A word to the thousands of film fans in Bangalore: This Festival has been specially designed for you - enjoy it!"

The German Film Week opens with the award-winning Requiem - a haunting story of the power that religion wields over young minds and continues through the week with more drama, tragedy, comedy, history, family and fantasy... all from acclaimed film makers, featuring superb cast and  crew.

Two award-winning films of celebrated director Fatih Akin - The Edge of Heaven and Head On - offer a back-to-back insight into German-Turkish immigrant cinema and the line that is drawn between what is home and what is foreign.

The search for orientation and direction in relationships is evident in several films, including the powerful portrayal in Four Minutes, as also A Friend of Mine, Ghosts and Warchild, covering love, loneliness, loss and longing - in a spectrum ranging from comic to tragic. Star-crossed love and rootlessness come to the fore in Nothing but Ghosts.

Films that deal with the youthful phase of life - reflecting scenes, zeitgeist, sensitivity and attitudes - form an integral part of the Festival. The cult film Status Yo! and Grave Decisions are must-watch features - and not just for youth. And at the other end of the scale
films like Cherry Blossoms, dealing with the travails of age and illness.

Since the nineties, children's film in Germany has been experiencing a boom with more productions, more variety. The children's section of the Festival includes timeless and enchanting entertainers (Emil and the Detectives and The Flying Classroom), as well as stirring stories such as Children of the Moon and The Blind Flyers.

Entry to the Festival is on the basis of Delegate Passes. Registration forms are available at the Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan, Suchitra Film Society, Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce and online at Passes will be issued from Monday August 4, 2008 onwards and are valid for the entire Festival.

The screening schedule, synopses of the films and other details are available at the Bhavan (2520 5305/6/7/8) and on the website: "

Jul 25-27: BFS Presents Lecture by Lawrence Liang/Screenings @ Ashirvad 
"And You Shall Witness THE ABSOLUTE ESSENCE OF ALL EVIL The very esteemed and equally stuffy faculties of that very esteemed and equally stuffy institution The Miskatonic University were all in attendance in that small cramped room in all their very esteemed and equally stuff fashion- cigarette holders holding pale white Russians, top hats, single-breasted impeccably tailored suits, jade broaches, silk handkerchiefs and rare orchids sticking out of the pockets and a professorial condescension on their faces and tongues. A passerby would be prone to remark how exceptionally esteemed and equally stuffy the whole affair was.

"I do believe that the old fool has put himself out on a very shaky ledge this time around," one of the attendees remarked.

"Do you really think Doctor Cipher can fulfill his claim of sublimating from nature… what does he call it…"

"THE ESSENCE OF EVIL," bellowed the Mathematics professor, hardly able to control his mirth.

"What does it mean anyway? It is absurd. If the mad doctor fails to impress me, I tell you this is the end of the Occult Sciences Department of the Miskatonic and I will personally see to it that…"

"G-g-g-g-good evening gentlemen," stammered Doctor Cipher.

The quick once over he had given his hair and clothes in the restroom was already coming apart. He pressed a couple of brass button and the wall before the gathered committee split open to reveal a strange apparatus within. Strange but typical- fluorescent tubes, blinking lights, test-tubes filled with strange green ooze, monitors with incoherent symbols- all wired up like the popular joke went "like the hair on the doctor's head and possibly even the brain beneath."

The esteemed gathering had already started to jab each other with their elbows and pass incredulous looks when a strange whirring sound drew their attention and they saw Doctor Cipher point a camera fixed on a tripod towards them and their images projected onto a huge screen at the center of the apparatus. A strange quiet took over the room as the gathering all shuffled around and adjusted their ties and hair to put up their handsomest profile on screen.

"An-an-an-an- and n-n-n-n-now gentlemen," began Doc Cipher, taking centre stage and placing one hand on an enormous lever," without further ado, I will pull this switch…"

A crazed glint entered his eyes, his lips twitched in a malicious grin and without the slightest hint of stammer declared,"… and you shall witness THE ABSOLUTE ESSENSE OF ALL EVIL"


A full 30 minutes passed before the gathering began to patter out of the room. Handkerchiefs were out rubbing the sweat off the deathly pale faces, cigarette holders were forgotten as quivering fingers struggled to light the tips. None were able even to look into each others eyes much less speak.

As they stumbled their way outside the gates it was the Dean who first spoke.

"The Horror, the horror," he said," Let us never speak of this anymore and as for the machine, it will have to be destroyed. Call the authorities, bribe them if you must. Mankind is not ready for this… this kind of abomination. Nobody must know. Ever."

- Excerpt from The Madness of Doctor Icarus and Other Very Evil Affairs(1935)

"Why don't we do it in the road?"

- The Beatles

The word 'Evil' is perhaps the most resurrected word in the history of censorship as can be seen from popular and oft used phrases like 'evil influence of cinema', 'the capacity of cinema for evil', 'evil impact of cinema on the young mind'. But what is the difference between the invocation of the word 'evil' in relation to cinema, in contrast to other modes of expression like literature and song? Is it just a descriptive word that has slipped into common parlance- a thoughtless cliché? Or is it more than a mere co-incidence? Doubts arise about the innocence of cinema from its very origins… is it not perhaps that as a medium itself and at its very fundamentals cinema is, like they say, pure evil.

Join esteemed legal researcher, lawyer, critic, prominent spokesperson and campaigner on various issues of public concern and renowned lecturer Lawrence Liang as he attempts to reconstruct the genealogy of evil in relation to cinema and takes an intriguing trip through the history of cinema, censorship and law all the way to the malin genie of 17th Century French Philosopher Rene Descartes.

Bangalore Film Society in association with Deep Focus Film Quarterly is proud to present 'Touch of Evil: The Legal Suspicion of Cinema'.

One Weekend. Three Films. One Lecture.

Friday 25th July, 2008 Time: 6.30pm

The Commissar (1967) (Russia/103min/ B&W) Dir: Alexander Asoldov

Beneath the tender humanity and lyricism of 'The Commissar' is a courageous stand against the rigid ideology and prejudices of the State, a stand that would nearly wreck the fate of the film causing it to banned forever in its homeland. It was almost considered a lost masterpiece for 20 years when it was rescued and premiered to a terrific response and a Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival 88'. Chronicling the relationship between a pregnant Commissar and the Jewish family into whose household she is sent to stay, Alexander Asoldov first and unfortunately only film is a passionate call for universal peace and understanding.

Saturday 26th July, 2008 Time: 6.00pm

'Touch of Evil: the Legal Suspicion of Cinema' Lecture by Lawrence Liang

An Attempt to reconstruct the genealogy of evil in relation to cinema by tracing backwards, the history of the ways in which the notion of evil has inflicted legal accounts of cinema, both in India and internationally, by looking at the various milestones of evil in law's response to cinema and censorship.

Time: 7.00pm

The Party and The Guests (1966) (Czechoslovakia/ 68min/B&W) Dir: Jan Nemec

One could say that the Czech master of surreal absurd humor Jan Nemec had it coming with his caustic satire on society 'The Party and The Guests' which chronicles a party among friends go haywire and end up a prison camp. Antonin Novotny, then Czechoslovak President found the movie to be a direct and dangerous attack on the Communist regime and the movie was banned until the Velvet Revolution of 89' whereupon it found itself on many 'all time best' critics' lists, a cult following and invited enthusiastic comparisons to Bunuel.

Sunday 27th July, 2008 Time: 6.30pm

Redacted (2007) (USA/90min/Color) Dir: Brain De Palma

There is and never will be any consensus on the continuing repertoire of the great Brian De Palma. Hack-Auteur, Sellout-Rebel, Low Pulp- High Art, Style over substance- style as substance… De Palma as an expert agent provocateur has defied easy classification and when his latest film 'Redacted' premiered at Venice Film Fest 07' controversy was first to knock at the door even before it was awarded the Silver Lion for Best Director. De Palma's critique on the politics and the role of the media in the Iraq situation boldly experiments with contemporary forms and mediums as he tries to create a construct a montage around the Mahmudiyah massacres from which the ugly truth will emerge.

Jul 30: Usha Ganguli @ Rangashankara 
India Foundation for the Arts






Directed and Performed by Usha Ganguli


Produced by Rangakarmee


Supported by Sobha Developers


July 30th, Ranga Shankara 7:30 pm



USHA GANGULI, a Sangeet Akademi awardee, leading the theatre group Rangakarmee for nearly twenty-five years now, remains essentially an actress who loves to take on challenging roles and seek to grow in the process. Trained as a dancer in the classical Indian modes, she strikes the delicate balance between formal rhythm and reality in the raw. Rangakarmee, which had its inception in January 1976, spearheads the Hindi theatre in Kolkata today, with fourteen productions on its live repertoire.  


ANTARYATRA is designed and performed by Usha Ganguli herself. In the play, she attempts to explore the Indian woman's psyche through a melange of characters. It takes us through a very personal and inner-driven journey in theatre. Ganguli has played a variety of women characters (Nora, Himmat Mai, Rudali, Kamla, Anima) on stage and her experiences obviously enrich her one-woman show. ANTARYATRA is a tribute to at least a dozen crucial female heroines played by Ganguli who are representatives of real-life women – each one belonging to a distinct social space and yet bound in some way by the virtue of being a woman.


Date: 30th July

Venue: Ranga Shankara.

Jul 26: Bengali Play Feluda @ RS 

(A Play in Bengali)

Feluda (http://en.wikipedia .org/wiki/ Feluda) aka Prodosh C. Mitter is the fictional detective created by Satyajit Ray, and is the protagonist of two of his fillms and thirty five novels and short stories. He is an iconic character in the world of Bengali literature and 'Feluda Pherot' marks the return of the much loved sleuth for its second ever stage adaptation.
It is the first ever non-canonical work based on a Ray created character either for the stage or for the screen. At one level, 'Feluda Pherot' is a gripping murder mystery with a twist in the tail. At another level, it is a philosophical classic deconstructing the alternative norms of good and evil, as personified by Feluda and his Moriarty-like arch rival, Maganlal Meghraj.

The form of the play also deviates at points from conventional proscenium - it has projected video clippings in a parallel narrative, elements of Third Theatre, suggestive rather than explicit sets, elements of the age-old Bengali folk tradition of 'Jaatraa' or 'Paalaa Gaan' retrofitted in the contemporary context, silhouetted use of choreographed Contemporary Dance Movements and a dedicated soundtrack.
This play also marks the collaboration between film personalilities from Kolkata and theatre workers from Bangalore.

* Venue : Rangashankara, J.P.Nagar , Bangalore
* Date: July 26 Sat, 7:30 PM; 27th Sun, 3:30 PM & 7:30 PM

Jul 26: Panel Discussion on Urban Change @ Max Mueller Bhavan 


"Greetings from the Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan!

We are happy to announce a Panel Discussion on Urban Change in Bangalore that will bring together two related projects - the current exhibition on display at the Bhavan, Urban Changes - An Exhibition of Photography, and the four Bangalore City Project Urban Space Events (or BCP City Walks as they are popularly known). The Panel will be moderated by
Ramachandra Guha.

Event: Talking the walks - where leads the road?
Panel Discussion on Urban Change
Date: July 26, 2008
Time: 6.00 p.m.
Venue: Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan
All are welcome!
For further details, please call the Bhavan: 2520 5305/6/7/8 or visit or

The photo exhibition Urban Changes, dealing with change in Indian cities, as perceived by South Asian photographers, offers the ideal backdrop to debate the experiences and issues arising out of the recently concluded BCP City Walks - in Gavipuram, Whitefield, Old City and Hessarghatta. We are fortunate to have the organisers of the walks on the panel and equally privileged to have Ramachandra Guha to moderate the discussion.

Talking the Walks - where leads the road? serves as a wrap-up of the BCP Urban Space Events and is also designed to offer a forum for all the participants of the walks who will have an opportunity to interact and exchange views, ideas and suggestions with like-minded people. The discussion is however expected to go beyond the Bangalore City Project itself and into the realm of how to address urban change, especially in the light of the disappearance of public spaces and heritage, and perhaps create a vision as to where it could and should lead.
