In today’s world, where we are bombarded with new and varied forms of content through various media, we seldom think if the content we view are viewed the right way. It is important and relevant that the viewer understands what he is watching and see beyond the visual and read the film, with its political context in the right place, especially in a country like India with over 1.2 billion people with more than 1500 films made across 16 languages.
So, this session looks at films and finds what’s wrong with it on a message level and discusses how a film should be politically correct, considering factors like Misogyny, Racism, Casteism, Homophobia, Colour Politics, Religion and so forth.
The Session will be divided as a presentation, where the speaker will give a detailed presentation by playing video clips from major mainstream films and discuss instances where these factors were blatantly expressed with or without knowledge by the filmmaker. The remainder of the session is an open forum where the participants can interact with the speaker on the topic.
