Delicious sea food and some lively jazz - watch it all at the Sarathi Studio tonight.
Cold Jazz is a film directed by Jayne Parker. In the 7 mins documentary a young woman is shown tasting oysters, while a middle-aged white British woman plays lively jazz on the saxophone. Jayne Parker's work is about felt experience. Her films give poetic form to intense inner feelings, which by their very nature, defy representation. Born in 1957, artist-director Jayne Parker has made 21 films and art installations that have been shown worldwide.
The Made By Women 2005 International Women's Film Festival is now on a tour around India, with the British Council's support. The Festival is the brainchild of Meenakshi Shedde, former film critic with The Times Of India, and Point Of View, a non-profit organisation from Mumbai.
Point Of View explores the viewpoints of women through different media — books, theatre, photography and films. During the previous tour, in 2004, there were a range of films from Samira Makhmalbaf’s The Apple to Jane Campion’s Sweetie. This festival was held in collaboration with the Federation Of Film Societies Of India, and went on a national tour of eight cities.
The gratifying reponse convinced them to return, with Bishakha Datta as the festival director, for another national tour of eight cities during April and May 2005 - Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Thiruvananthapuram, Hyderabad and Pune.
