Lightcube Film Society presents Pinhole Sessions 2 film screenings which are as follows :
Girni (2005) / Umesh Vinayak Kulkarni / 22mins
A child rages against a machine that provides his family financial stability, but disturbs the gentle balance of his life.
There Is Something In The Air (2011) / Iram Ghufran / 28mins:25sec
THERE IS SOMETHING IN THE AIR is a call from the periphery of sanity. This documentary is a series of dream narratives, and accounts of spiritual possession as experienced by women ‘petitioners’ at the shrine of a Sufi saint in north India. Drama unfolds via dreams, and appearances of djinns and disappearances of women. The shrine becomes a space of expressions of longing and transgression. The film invites the viewer to a world of dream and fantasy. Fear and desire is experienced through dreams and ‘afflictions of air’. The shrine is a space where performance becomes the only rule of engagement, and one can begin to think of the possibilities that ‘insanity’ produces.
Background : Pinhole Sessions by Lightcube Film Society
The idea of the short film is one borne out of convenience. Films of a shorter duration are as old as cinema itself (in the early days, these films were called two-reelers) – but this fact owes itself to the early, nascent and experimental phase of cinema: when people who had conceived the medium had no real idea of what to do with it.
