City and Cinema by Basavraj Biradar
The City has been of great interest to cinema since the beginning. After all, it was the industrial city which invented cinema technology. While city life was prevalent in the west from the early 20th century, it is still hard to call urban life the most common experience in India.
The confusion the dichotomy, chaos and dialectic of the Indian urban experience, influenced by the ever changing cultural and political discourses, have inspired the cinematic representation of the Indian city in cinema.
Basavraj Biradar talks about the various representations of the Indian city and traces the evolution of the cinematic Indian city. He is an independent researcher, writer, journalist, theatre director and documentary filmmaker based in BengaluruThis session has been curated by Encounter Eclectic
What is EncounterEclectic? EncounterEclectic believes that learning is an on-going and lifelong journey. Many of us would like to learn more about a diverse range of subjects – from art to literature to history and cultures to astronomy – but not in a formal classroom, nor to pass an exam. Do you just want to explore a topic or discuss an idea? That’s where EncounterEclectic comes in!
EncounterEclectic is the brainchild of a group of people deeply engaged with higher education, with decades of experience in teaching at premier universities. They have curated over 75 extramural courses focused on continuous learning, supported by a team of experienced facilitators from diverse fields.
Sometimes provocative, but not controversial or contentious; not too academic yet not superficial – EncounterEclectic is a space for ‘learned leisure’.
