If you've done your bit to destroy the environment, then this film talks to you. If you haven't, it'll perhaps prove that you did.
ECOMOVE International, Germany, is screening a series of 11 documentaries from various countries, from 18th to 22nd January, at Goethe-Zentrum - The Association of German Culture. Today, the inaugural day, an Indian documentary called The Many Faces Of Madness by Amar Kanwar will be screened.
It is a short film that has emerged from the reality of destruction in India. India is a subcontinent whose natural environment is being endangered on a wide scale. This film deals with commerce and greed, and presents images from different parts of India to reveal an insight into traditional water harvesting systems, mining, chemical pollution, community forest protection, displacement, deforestation, biopiracy and coastal ecosystems.
In the framework of an educational project initiated by ECOMOVE International, a series of film screenings and discussions take place in different cities/regions in India. For this project, ECOMOVE has prepared a film program presenting award-winning documentaries dealing with environmental problems in India, and their global backgrounds and causes. An initial film screening in Chennai as well as a film tour through various villages in South India have taken place in April 2006.
The screenings will start everyday from 6:00pm, at the Goethe-Zentrum office in Hermitage Complex, Opp. Kalanjali Showroom, Hill Fort Road, and are absolutely free. For further details, please contact 6652-6443/2324-1791.
