John Berger, A Seventh Time

Video and Stills with accompanying commentary
90 minutes
7:00 pm
*plus a newly-scanned copy of "A Seventh Man", Berger's photo-text book on migrant work.

This evening we bring to you some of the, lets call them the more migratory and joyous truths of the artist, poet, critic, marxist, screenplay writer, novelist and actor John Berger - as edited from sound, image and text archives of his work.

Migratory in the sense of having something undogmatic, worldly and yet quite continuous to say, do, and make, in every recent decade. A small compilation of materials, from which we can think of say the past century, in artistic, irreducible as well as political and connected terms, without being crushed in their contradictions.

If you set out in this world,
Let these seven be your companions.
One, who talks over Chandigarh
One, who donates his Booker
One, who shows us Ways of Seeing
One, who reads Garlic and eats Saffron
One, who draws a Dancer and unsettles Time
One, who is a Storyteller
If all they spark is not a fire
you yourself must be the Seventh

(via the The Seventh, by Attila Jozsef)

Battle for Banaras

Battle for Banaras
Kamal Swaroop, 2014
2hrs 13mins
Friday, 18th November. 8 pm
Kamal and the crew will be present.

Through the film we cutaway to the river's edge and two men talking, about this place, and about politics older than the modern Indian city. Then we enter the city again, and its rushes of electoral spectacle, surging crowds, politically astute residents, actions designed for this time and place. When Kamal Swaroop says "I am no longer speaking, in my films" he seems to mean that he watching the crowds, listening, looking from whatever distance is possible, often with a long lens and a small crew.

Many Months in Mirya

The film evokes the practice of the diary film, at once observational and reflexive, and draws power from its twin strategies of frugal economy and long duration. Screening & discussion with Renu.
