Description

26 Aug 2015, Wed 7:30pm - 9:00pm
The Single Screen

In response to NTU CCA Singapore’s overarching research framework, PLACE.LABOUR.CAPITAL, the Indian filmmaker, curator and pedagogue, Madhusree Dutta will introduce the remarkable Project Cinema City: Research Art and Documentary Practices (2008 – 2012). This expansive project addressed the intertwined relation between cinema and city in a place that produces cinema on an industrial scale, namely Bombay/Mumbai. A multidisciplinary research project that has been presented in various contexts from Berlin International Film Festival to the National Gallery of Modern Art (Mumbai), Project Cinema City explored the production strategies, labour structure, viewing conventions and materiality of cinema highlighting the inseparable relation between cinema and city.

The lecture will include a screening of Dhananjay Kulkarni “Chandragupt” (2009) directed by Rrivu Laha (India), a film that explores the character portrayal of a nocturnal citizen with a Bollywood aspiration.
