in collaboration with
Bangalore Film Society
invites you for
Multiple Visions, The Crazy Machine
All the films will start @5 pm.
The March series of films at the NGMA continue from the January screenings – to cinema that turns its gaze on the lens. The photographic image is the central focus of these films that move through time and different contexts as well as formats of the documentary and fiction. The series transitions from films that focus on celebrated masters to a meditation on the nature of images to finally looking at reception and the camera in the hands of its ‘subjects’.

For the last 40 years, the photographer Sebastião Salgado has been travelling through the continents, in the footsteps of an ever-changing humanity. He has witnessed some of the major events of our recent history; international conflicts, starvation and exodus. He is now embarking on the discovery of pristine territories, of wild fauna and flora, and of grandiose landscapes as part of a huge photographic project, which is a tribute to the planet's beauty. Sebastião Salgado's life and work are revealed to us by his son, Juliano, who went with him during his last travels, and by Wim Wenders, himself a photographer.

Born into Brothels
Bengali, English / 2005 / 85 minutes
Directors: Zana Briski, Ross Kauffman
Documentary photographer Zana Briski journeyed into Calcutta's underworld to photograph the city's prostitutes. In return, she offered to teach the prostitutes' children the basics of photography so that the kids could document their own lives on the streets of one of the world's poorest cities. The resulting photographs, often astonishing, were exhibited around the world; many of them are seen in this film, which won the Academy Award for best documentary feature in 2005.
