VIEWING ROOM 2018

by NFDC


by NFDC

Welcome to Viewing Room 2018 The Viewing Room was introduced in the 2011 edition of Film Bazaar. The aim of the Viewing Room is to present Indian and South Asian films that are recently completed or in the final stages of editing and post-production to buyers, film programmers, distributors, world sales agents and investors at Film Bazaar. These films are viewed on individual computer terminals in private booths via the Viewing Room software that has been exclusively designed for this purpose. Delegates with Viewing Room access can watch complete films, retrieve details of the films as well as contact the directors or producers.

These films are absolutely fresh; most are works in progress, unreleased and are yet to have their world premiere at any film festival. Most of the films in this section are having their first market screening at this Film Bazaar. This year we have 24 films in the FBR section. Film Library (FL) – All feature length submissions to Viewing Room are showcased in a section called Film Library, which includes both Fiction and Documentary Features. This year we have 133 films in the Film Library Section.

The films presented are seeking finishing funds/world sales/ distribution partners/participation in film festivals.

Short Films – All submitted films under the duration of 60 minutes are in this category.

This catalogue contains information on these films divided into three main categories:

This year we have 65 short films in this section.

Film Bazaar Recommends (FBR) – Film Bazaar Recommends, as the name suggests, is a curated section of films selected from the total feature film submissions to Viewing Room. FBR films in Viewing Room are looking for either or all of three main criteria i.e. Gap Financing, Distribution & Sales, Film Festivals. Many of them are also looking for finishing funds.

The team for this segment consists of Deepti DCunha – consultant and programmer for Viewing Room at NFDC Film Bazaar since 2011, Abhra Das – programming coordinator for Viewing Room since 2015, Mimansha Punamia and Biaas Sanyal.

Film Bazaar 2018

A total of 222 films are presented in Viewing Room this year.

A Dog Dies Awaiting World Premiere

In a region where large-scale displacement of villagers is common due to coal mining, Shoukie and his dog Kheru spend, what seems like, the last night in their village. The entire village has been abandoned for almost two years but Shoukie has been adamant about staying back – his home is not for sale. Shoukie stays on like a ghost with his dog. When Shoukie is served a final notice by the mining company for eviction, he senses an imminent defeat and an illogical thought occurs to him – that his dog would die that night. Left alone by family and friends, Shoukie passes the night, hungry and nostalgic, with this notion of his dog’s death. Representative of displacement due to industrialization, A Dog Dies is a curious tale of a person’s loneliness where he becomes a mere spectator in the journey of his own life.

Faces Awaiting World Premiere

While paradoxically her scars bring her fame, acid attack survivor Ritu, 23, feels confused about being lonely as the question of marriage begins to preoccupy her. While she lingers on the affection of a fellow female survivor Anshu, she feels apprehensive about how their relationship will be viewed by a society where homosexuality is still a stigma. On the other hand, 32-year old Faraha’s eyesight is severely affected in the acid attack by her ex-husband. She can no longer do her embroidery work that made her self-reliant in the past. Consultations with eye specialists leave her frustrated as she realizes that her eyesight might never return. Even though her life becomes difficult after the attack, independence still holds more meaning for her than staying in a marriage for the sake of society. The film explores Ritu and Faraha’s resilience that challenges norms of beauty and relationships followed for generations.

Monalisa Awaiting World Premiere

The basic idea of Monalisa is very simple. It observes a woman’s life up close for five consecutive days. Without trying to prove any point in particular, the film takes a sneak peek into her life. It is more like a slice of her life. Instead of presenting a story, drama or constant changes in narrative, It prefer to hold the time for a while and try to observe a woman’s mundane life where the silence, the pauses between the words can tell us so many things and evoke a myriad of emotions. It tries to see through this silence how, sometimes, her heart wants to break all the chains and just fly away. On the contrary, it also shows us how this day-to-day life brings out the bonding, the nostalgia, the dilemmas, the discovery of self and teaches us the meaning of love, which forms the crux of the film.

Aabhaasam

Malayalam | India Fiction | 119 mins

Aabhaasam is a journey through and into the suppressed desires of love and the inhuman acts that stem from such suppression. Gandhi Travels, a tour company run by Democracy Travel Agency, departs from Bangalore to Kerala. The travellers represent the members of an audience it tries to communicate with. The journey happens over a single night, where it becomes a partial analysis of an evolved schizophrenic society, with its eyesight diminished to binary views, under a systematic oppression of patriarchy. Here the bus becomes the frame of a system and its perpetrators and victims, the travellers. In its ambition, the film is twofold, one as the subject and other as its critique. The confined space of this bus welcomes and critiques the mainstream audience who would watch and celebrate the events in it.

Ammachi Yemba Nenapu Awaiting World Premiere

A Memory Called Ammachi

The film is based on three short stories woven together by the celebrated Kannada writer and Kendra Sahitya Academy awardee, Vaidehi. It is a movie which quietly yet powerfully unfolds the multiple layers of a woman’s eternal striving for identity in a patriarchal society. The film portrays the intense struggle three women - Akku, Pittammathe and AmmachiI - undergo to discover themselves. It unveils the tyranny and disease-ridden state of a male-centric society which looks at a woman solely as an object of gratification, trampling upon her physically and mentally, trying to control and possess her whole being. The movie depicts in multilayered ways the direct and indirect subjugation, the unseen noose suffocating her voice and her eternal striving for identity down the ages. Reflecting deeply on these issues, the film raises many meaningful questions.

Ashok Vatika is about a young widow’s quest for love and companionship in a conservative society where female desire is suppressed. In Hindu mythology, Ashok Vatika was the garden in Lanka where queen Sita was held captive by the king Ravana. The landscape of the dark and gloomy garden surrounded by tall trees was like a cage in which Sita was trapped. In the film, Shanvi, a young widow is stuck in a similar predicament in a claustrophobic environment in the holy city of Varanasi. Yearning for love and companionship, she craves for the affections of a man. One day she meets Eshan, a filmmaker, who is visiting the city. His unorthodox view on marriage and widowhood evokes the woman inside Shanvi to seek a more fulfilling life, away from the ancient traditions that dictate the life of widows.

Darshan, a candy seller, wants to stop him and all the artists from committing suicide. Satya is a country cousin and is searching for an address.

Shanti, a seductress and Iswar’s depute, is appointed to provide peace to the people. The metaphorical and satirical treatment of the story slowly develops into a conflict between Darshan and Iswar, both of whom fight over the suicide mission of Biswa.

In Goa are two bakeries – as similar as they are different. The Gomes family has been baking bread for generations and despite being insiders are unable to find Goan workers in this labour intensive trade. The survival of this bakery thus depends on the daily toil of the family members. Not too far away is another bakery run entirely by migrants. Kiran and his co-workers set out daily at the crack of dawn, cycling for miles to deliver bread. Displaying the proverbial tenacity of migrants, they adapt to a new trade, language and diet. On the other hand, Marius is a returning migrant who wants to reclaim the bread of the past. Tying it all together is a Goan meal shared over bread. The emergent narrative reflects how integral this spongy piece of baked dough is to the concept of identity.

During the nine-day festival of Lord Ganesha (the elephant headed Hindu God of prosperity) a filmmaker stumbles upon a community of working class people in the margins of the city of Hyderabad, as randomly as they chance upon a black idol of Ganesha. What emerges through this chance encounter is a story of the community which, drenched in the aura of festivities, must find a way to wade through inevitable financial crunches, personal disputes and the larger unanticipated ordeals of equipment malfunctions, disinterested alcoholics and harsh weather, to throw the best Ganesha celebration in town. The idol, centrally located in the community, becomes a hotbed for endless gossip, banter and communal activity, unravelling a myriad of narratives, which unwittingly tap into the larger politics of skin colour, gender, caste, the economics of religion and the humanness of their God.

#Gadhvi Awaiting World Premiere

When a retired widower inadvertently takes on the establishment, the nondescript Ram Nath Gadhvi becomes a social media sensation trending as #Gadhvi. The story unfolds with a Gandhian (read pacifist) Gadhvi taking on the machinations of a hired gun, Omkar. However, Gadhvi is no ordinary Gandhian – he believes he is the reincarnation of Mahatma Gandhi himself! The only way Omkar can succeed in his mission of suppressing the swelling anger against his masters, is by shattering Gadhvi’s delusion. What starts off as a story of a motley cast of characters takes a serious turn when Gadhvi becomes a social media hero who can be brought down only by bringing down his core beliefs.The satire works like a thriller where one is kept guessing about who Gadhvi really is – is he really Gandhi’s reincarnation? And will the truth set him free?

On his deathbed, a man makes a stunning disclosure to his son Bharat about the existence of a secret village called Bharatgaon, originally founded by a group of rebels during the British rule in India. The man’s final wish is for his ashes to be immersed in the Tamasin River which flows through it. After a difficult journey undertaken to fulfill his father’s last wish, Bharat arrives in Bharatgaon. He comes to understand that it was established to maintain age-old Indian cultural traditions, values, and institutions safe from the encroachment by the West. Bharat believes it’s high time that Bharatgaon joins the outside world. Bharatgaon and the protagonist Bharat serve as metaphors for the state of India and represent the diametrically opposed interpretations which reside side-by-side within one nation – competing, confronting, and falling for each other. This film is the outcome of those encounters.

Awaiting World Premiere

The film is a metaphorical depiction of turtle where in a drought struck village of Rajasthan, Ramkaran Chowdhary, is churning the parched, sun baked earth, to extract water and the common folk is indulged in a tug of war, rotating on his shell, desperate to quench their thirst. Our sardonic folklorist, the alghoza, is like the effusive river of sand flowing in the desert, who has intertwined in his ceaseless moustache the mythical allegory and macabre images in the rustic tale of the desert, where by means of spells, conjuration, black magic and incantations, the village folk are trying to get rid of the voodoo, they believe have been caused by a calamitous jinx, a boy of 8, by whose birth all the water bodies of their as well as, the nearby hamlets have dried up.

Sunil is home alone and the doorbell rings. The stranger at the door introduces himself as Raghav. He seems polite, affable and friendly. It turns out that he is the husband of Chhaya – a woman whom Sunil is having an affair with. Sunil is awkward as hell – but Raghav manages to put him at ease and says he just came to see Sunil out of curiosity. Pretty soon, Raghav’s questioning becomes painfully intrusive. He wants to know all the details of Sunil’s affair with Chhaya – even the awkward, uncomfortable ones. And then he produces a gun from his bag – and shoots himself in the head. Sunil freaks out. In a few minutes, his wife Malti comes back home. He tells her this was a man he had fired from his office last week; half truths at best. Together they manage to hide the body. Turns out, this is Diwali night – the biggest festival of the year. Guests start trooping in and the party swing.

Kodanti house, the sutradhar (narrator) fills gaps in the stories of the family that lived in it – Anantarama’s restaurant, his wife Sharadamma, her cows and cowshed, gold in manure, her escape from Ravana, interaction between their grandson and ghost Bhavani, their return to earth as crows, stories of the sea, myth of a semagay press horse, their stoic daughter-in-law, memories of grandchildren of their summer vacation, chikoo, mango or coconut trees.

In this riveting dystopian drama, an outsider with unconventional traits emerges from a grim forest and finds himself on the fringes of an idyllic village, a seemingly thriving civilization. He ventures into the village for sustenance but is greeted with severe animosity from the inhabitants. Fueled by suspicion, the village despot resorts to weaving a web of paranoia and brands the outsider’s presence as an attack on our society and culture. Khyapa takes viewers through a series of fateful events and eventually raises searing questions on human coexistence and the inane belief systems of a society. The debut feature by writer-director Riddhi Majumder is an ardent attempt to recreate a society where religious and political convictions tragically turn to mass hysteria.

Naaham

Hindi | India Fiction | 114 mins

I’M Not!

Awaiting World Premiere

Naaham unfolds a man’s redemptive journey through the complex matrix of life, music and mania. The film explores a musician’s untoward maniacal disposition stirred by an accidental moral slip. It is set in the holy city of Varanasi where remaining virtuous is as pertinent to survival as is being devout. For Prabhu, the fragile demarcation between virtue and vice blurs one night when he is provoked into an impulsive liaison. This leads to an impossible psychosis, throwing his life and musical career off course. His vulnerability stands naked and unshielded. Like every other dweller of Varanasi, Prabhu seeks refuge in spiritualism to the ridiculous extent of idiosyncrasy. Forsaking home and domesticity, he contemplates salvation until one day, he wakes up to realize his actual role in the complex lattice of life. Nahaam is a tale of self-discovery narrated in a style that is both pragmatic and sentimental.

Hailing from a provincial fishing community, Salman is a man who lives and breathes the sea. Kayyavi is an imaginary or imaginable promise in his life. She collects the corals from the beach and weaves them into beautiful works of art. She presents an intriguing life force in Salman’s world. They share this perfect space until Salman’s life is suddenly rebooted and he is forced to embrace the enigma that is Kayyavi. It is then that she begins to unfold like the haze that envelopes all of perception. The film lies between one shore and several other as an exploration into protozoan lives – immersed in themselves and adrift in the mighty waters of reality. Unveiling as a visual poem, it treads on the precarious shore that separates the real from the unreal. The story is intriguing in its layering of the magical and the mysterious with the mundane.

The man is anonymous, suffering from sleeping problems and anxiety. This film is an insight into a man’s mind and how he creates an imaginary woman and colours her with his emotions and imaginations. The film is also a social statement on social media and its trappings. Shot on an iPhone X in Italy and Spain over 18 days, the film was made with a shoestring budget and a crew of four including the two actors. It is a completely improvised work where theatre meets cinema.

Surjo Prithibir Chardike Ghore Awaiting International Premiere

Sun Goes Around The Earth

Based on the real life character of K. C. Pal, this film is a docufiction. Surjo Prithibir Chardike Ghore (The Sun Goes Around the Earth) – for the last 40 years T. C. Pal has relentlessly written these words on the walls of Kolkata. Once employed with the army, Pal was convinced that he has discovered proof that will lay to rest the debate that no longer exists. Once he left the army, Pal spent all his savings. Deserted by his family, he lives in a makeshift tent on the roads of Kolkata, often chased and manhandled by people. But he remains unfazed in his struggle. He lives on a meagre daily budget, and what he scrounges and earns – sometimes as a daily wage labourer – goes in printing the pamphlets of the fourteen proofs that will change the world. He often distributes them for free. Pal is not bitter – he knows that Galileo suffered the same fate. He is convinced that someday the truth will prevail.

Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui is asked to study Ashok, the actual resident of the room Nawaz is going to inhabit for the filming of Bombay Talkies. It is an experiment led by Dibakar Banerjee in letting documentary seep into fiction, and open fiction to serendipity. In the process, all three of them construct the lead character of Bombay Talkies – Purandar. He is a dreamer, Don Quixote, idea-a-minute entrepreneur, a failed artist, and a storyteller in search of a tale. This is a film on the fundamental human search for a life less ordinary. The filmmaker, the actor, the model and the protagonist cross paths in their endless search for the extraordinary, sometimes constructed by cinema, sometimes gifted by a life sublime. It is a documentary that ponders over the nature and cost of the cinematic process, its invasiveness and its need to devour so that it can create.

What does freedom mean for an innocent convict if becoming a murderer is the price he has to pay for it? What does resilience mean for a woman who has reconciled with her daughter’s state of coma and yet is driven by a belief that as long as her daughter’s dreams and imagination throb inside her, life and hope have to be preserved, no matter how painful the experience might be?

In the heartland of Tamil Nadu, in a small village called (K)ondugampatti of the Madurai District, life remains unchanged and far removed from the chaos of a rapidly changing world. In the face of political and societal changes, Kanan and his family, like many others in villages across Tamil Nadu, strive to uphold the traditions that have been handed down for generations. Like many bulls, Dharma is raised and nurtured as a part of the family, and bred with the singular purpose of competing in Jallikattu. This sport, that has been practiced for over a millennia, tests the bravery of men in the face of imminent danger. It has been criticised for its inherent cruelty towards animals and the debates that have since ensued have become deeply politicised, polarising people across the country. This film explores the psyche of Kanan and his relationship with Dharma.

Dhukyachya Vaata is a film-poem. Humans are pattern-seeking animals. We learn, seek and imitate patterns, and always wonder – what if there is a larger design at play? How do we know if there is? Aakash is seeking such answers. While Aakash cannot clearly see what bothers him, the film explores his questions – what keeps him awake at night? Where does he feel home? In his house? In his room? Or in the deep jungle that he has been visiting for several years? Aakash contemplates, trying to make sense of it. Seemingly, he is just another next-door neighborhood lad, but the subtleties of his world tell a different story. His reminiscence of a sensory-rich childhood reveals how he has grown close to nature, how it has deepened his existence. A thrilling experience haunts him like a ghost, takes him on a misty road, a dream awakens his soul to something hiding under his nose. And he finally realizes what matters to him.

Awaiting World Premiere

The Disguise is an intimate film about the lives of two Muslim women who live and work in London. One is culturally conservative, holding on to her native symbols of identity, while the other is liberal, assimilated into the western world. Through a series of events both women find themselves struggling to come to terms with their own sense of self. Both have family members not entirely comfortable with their choices – a husband in case of one, and a mother in case of the other. Eventually, an incident on the road – a hate crime – pushes matters to a head and forces both women to rethink their concept of identity. The film makes no attempt to arrive at answers, but leaves certain questions hanging: what is identity? And who decides how we choose to live?

At his age, it’s difficult to find daily wage work and hence, Laadi survives by stealing bags of people who leave them at the security counter of a small-town shopping complex, by using similar old tokens. Budhiya, another thief, much younger, helps him understand life, when their paths cross. Token is a film about survival, chaos, life and death, a corollary of each other.

Tungrus

English, Hindi | India Documentary | 13 mins

Tungrus is a short documentary that observes a week in the peculiar lives of a middle-class household in Mumbai which turns topsy-turvy when the eccentric patriarch brings home a baby chick for his cats to play with. What follows is an alternatingly absurd, nerve-jangling and heartwarming set of accounts about the chick from each member of the family. The once adorable chick survives his early days and growns into a tyrant, willful bird, forever taking up too much of their space and generally making life in the apartment unlivable. The film follows the thoughts of each person to their inevitable conclusion – the rooster’s got to go. And as his fate hangs in the balance, the family debates the question that lingers in the air: should he be given the gift of life, or be served for dinner?
