Among the various films made by the renowned filmmaker Mrinal Sen, 'Bhuvan Shome' made in 1969, financed by the Government of India, was a landmark film for its innovation and experimentation, setting the path for the Indian New Wave Cinema Movement. In 2013, Films Division, a Government of India Undertaking, decides to make a documentary film on Mrinal Sen. Officials from the Films Division go to Mrinal Sen's house in Kolkata to officially propose the making of the documentary film on him. I go along with them.

We will also be screening, Ramani's shoter documentary from 2010: : MERA GAON HAI BAMBAI (My village is Bambai)
29 minutes, Hindi, Tamil, English (Subtitled in English)

Children lodged at the Govt Remand Homes in Chennai, are brought there under various charges. Caught between the boundaries of the States and law, the Remand Home is a space in transit for the children. Some children find their way back home, some find State adoption, but for many it is a journey to nowhere.

21 October 2016 , 6.30 pm

HINDUSTAN HAMARA (This Country Is Ours) 
98 minutes, English, Marathi, Hindi, Malayalam (Subtitled in English), 2014

Photographed, Edited, Directed and Produced by R.V.Ramani
Anand Patwardhan has been making and screening documentary films as an extension of his socio-political activism, for over forty years now. In what appears to be a rare encounter between two filmmakers, R.V. Ramani, a cinematographer and an auteur in his own right, decides to engage in a 'visual conversation' with Anand Patwardhan, as the latter goes about screening his films across diverse audiences in the country. The film unfolds a range of poignant perspectives around Anand's screening events and seems to raise primary questions in documentary filmmaking and representational politics.
