Bengaluru Talkies: [Screening] The Other Song
Paradigm Shift <https://www.facebook.com/paradigmshiftvegan> is excited to
invite you for the screening of documentary 'The Other Song' by Saba Dewan
on 29th August, 2014 @7.00 in the evening.
Paradigm Shift Address: 4th Floor, 8, 80 Feet Road, Koramangala 4th Block,
Near Sony Signal. Bangalore
About the film*: The film contains the journey taken in search of a lost
song. Famous singer Rasoolan Bai from 1950s India used her own singing
methods and changed the lyrics to create different versions of the 'thumri'
(a genre of traditional Indian music) songs [My Heart is Wounded, Don't
Throw Flowers at Me]. Her own singing style and ever-changing lyrics make
this song a rare gem. As the film gropes after her life, it finds her
friends, song collectors, and succeeding generations of 'thumri' singers.
About the film-maker: Saba is an independent documentary filmmaker. Her
work has focused on communalism, gender and sexuality. Her major works
include ‘Dharmayuddha’, ‘Nasoor’, ‘Khel’, ‘Barf’ and ‘Bundelkhand Express.’
