This has been an enchantingly learning experience for me as a media student. The world of Films was opened to me, internationally. I was in a completely astonishing world. I enjoyed being a part of it more so that I wish to make a name for myself in the same media form.
It is organized by Films Division Corporation under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. This Festival is screening Documentary, Short & Animation films, is an international platform for upcoming intelligent directors. NCPA is a place for the lovers of Art. I am keen on becoming a member of it soon.
I watched 3 films and this is what I felt. I got a new perspective of the global world around us.
1. Lost & Found – Indian
‘Lost & found’ is a docudrama, telling the story of a bottle of 1910. It shows how the bottle travels through Maharashtra, from one hand to the other, to send good luck. But ultimately it gets lost in the sea once again, where it was thrown by it owner, who committed suicide in lost love.
2. Empire of Evil – German
Ruhollah Musawi Khomeini
(September 24, 1902 – June 3, 1989) was a senior Shi''''a Muslim cleric, Islamic philosopher and marja
(religious authority), and the political leader of the 1979 Iranian Revolution which saw the overthrow of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the last Shah of Iran. Following the revolution, Khomeini became the country''''s Supreme Leader—the paramount political figure of the new Islamic Republic until his death.
Khomeini was an important spiritual leader to many Shia Muslims. He was also an innovative Islamic political theorist, most noted for his development of the theory of the "guardianship of the jurisconsult (clerical authority)". He was named Time
’s Man of the Year in 1979 and also one of Time
magazine''''s 100 most influential people of the 20th century.
The Shia leader laid a religious culture which denied freedom of expression and career, espcially for the womenfolk. Adding to this, women and men (say a father and his daughter) could not be joint spectators to any event of the related. The lack of career growth opportunities made many to leave the country for the fulfillment of their dreams.
3. Kerala’s protest campaign against Coca Cola
is a state on the tropical Malabar Coast of southwestern India. To its east and northeast, Kerala borders Tamil Nadu and Karnataka; to its west and south lie the Indian Ocean islands of Lakshadweep and the Maldives, respectively. Kerala nearly envelops Mahé, a coastal exclave of Pondicherry. Kerala is one of four states that compose the linguistic-cultural region known as South India. The principal spoken language is Malayalam, but other languages are also spoken. God’s own country has a small villgae named Plachimada is an example to fight for clean and healthy water for our future generations.
A very bold struggle that set examples for the rest of the country. The voice of the commom man made its point to shut the coca cola company in India.
I could not visit MIFF for the rest of the week but that one-day experience made its long-lasting impact on me. The intelligent national and international delegates are a treat to be accompanied.
