Ever thought of what the world would have been like without the filters of society and its rules? Here's the results of an interesting viva voce some people had with convention.
On the occasion of World Theatre Day, the Sarojini Naidu School of Performing Arts and Fine Arts, in association with Moving Images and Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad, is organising a 3-day film festival on theater, from 27th to 29th March.
Today, the final day, a German film called Love Me You is being screened at the New Seminar Hall, School of Social Studies, University of Hyderabad. Directed by Sylvie Banuls and Sabina Engel, the film is about some very special actors in an extraordinary work of theater, and about the unusual love between two of them: Moritz and Nele. They both have Down's Syndrome and both act in productions of the Ramba Zamba Theater in Berlin – frequently playing to full houses.
The film sheds light on a world which most normal people tend to regard as substandard. Despite the international trend of global assimilation and homogenous lifestyles, the film reveals life without the filters of society and its rules: one which is not only different, but also uniquely special and full of color.
Against the backdrop of the bio-ethics debate, the film shows people who are assumed to be far removed from the norm, yet nonetheless manage to live a rich and whole-hearted life – wonderfully free from the constraints of social conventions.
The film starts at 4:30pm, and the entry is free for all. For further details, please contact Goethe-Zentrum at 6652-6443/2324-1791.
