Musical Documentaries - 4 August 2016/ Kriti Film Club specials@IHC

Kriti Film Club marks August 2016
with two musical documentaries that symbolise freedom, faith and timelessless while celebrating the power of music and the human spirit, in these troubled times.

Song Of The 'Other' Firefly
by Abhijeet Bhatt, Abhishek Dutta, Meghna Talwar, Nagma Sahi Ansari and Umang Sabarwal

A film tracing the travels of ‘Jugni’, a feminine spirit often found in Punjabi folk music and Sufism. Jugni is timeless and does not succumb to one identity or take on a tangible form. The film attempts to capture the transitory nature of Jugni, vis-a-vis , the changing nature of our times.


A Bohemian Musician 
(Hindi/English/2015/12mins). Dir. Rochak Sahu. 

A student film on the life story of Keshav Lal who collaborated with the likes of Laxmikant Pyarelal and V. Shantaram. Fate brought Keshav Lal and his wife to the streets of Pune where they played music for a living.

The screenings are followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.

Thanks to India Habitat Centre for the collaboration to make these screenings possible!
