Program of Shri Anand Bhate

Namaskaar,

We are presented with an opportunity to stage this exceptional talent from India - Shri Anand Bhate and his sathidaars for an evening/afternoon of various style of music. As you will note, Shri Bhate is a disciple of the Late Bharat Ratna Shri Bhimsen Joshi.
 
We estimate the cost to be in the range of about $1800.0 (not including food). This would mean that we will need about 90 to 100 people to attend to make the tickets between $18 to $25 per person.
 
Let us know your thoughts by Feb 28th 2013 in the comments below or via the contact form on our website.

Subject: JAI BHIM COMRADE - with director Anand Patwardhan in attendance

Join us for the Quebec premiere of award-winning activist and filmmaker Anand Patwardhan's newest social justice opus,JAI BHIM COMRADE, a documentary about the struggle of the Dalits (previously known as the Untouchables) and their resistance to oppression through music and poetry. This screening is co-presented with the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema, the Documentary Centre at Concordia, Kabir Cultural Centre, Montreal Serai, CERAS (South Asia Centre),SAWCC (South Asian Women's Community Centre), DOC Quebec and QPIRG Concordia. Anand Patwardhan will be present for a post-screening discussion following the projection.

An engaging odyssey, this masterpiece of political, social and cultural historical storytelling shines light on the struggle of India's lowest caste.

Anand Patwardhan / India / 2012 / 182 ' / Marathi - Hindi / S.T. English

WHAT: Montreal premiere screening of JAI BHIM COMRADE with director in attendance 
WHEN: Saturday, November 24, 7PM 
WHERE: Room H-110, Concordia University, 1455 de Maisonneuve W. 
COST: Suggested donation $2-5 
INFO: cinemapolitica.org/concordia 
SOCIAL MEDIA: Facebook event

SHORT SYNOPSIS: After the 1997 police shooting of 10 unarmed Dalit (formerly known as Untouchable) protesters and bystanders in Mumbai’s slums, the community’s rage over their 2,000 years of oppression boils over. For one man, singer, poet and activist, Vilas Ghogre, it’s more than he can bear; filled with despair over the pain and grief of his people, he hangs himself. Compelled by this tragedy, award-winning activist and documentarian Anand Patwardhan focuses his keen lens on the atrocities committed against the Dalits in this magnum opus 14 years in the making, incorporating their voice through their stirring resistance music and poetry. Denied basic human rights for centuries, condemned to clean the filth of the upper caste for pennies a day, then abhorred as lesser beings, the Dalit struggle is deftly counterbalanced by intimate family portraits, moments of inspiration, perseverance and glimpses of a better future.
