I do believe that documentary filmmaking in India has made great strides and produced some of the finest films in the last 15-20 years, both in terms of their aesthetic merit and their engagement with issues that concern us all. You need not feel dejected, A, because these films travel the documentary festival circuit quite often or are invited for special screenings. I am sure you will get to see some of them. City of Photos, for instance, has been to Montreal, Toronto, New York, San Fancisco, Chicago and Munich last year. Don't miss this film if it plays anywhere near you

For those in Chicago or anywhere near it, City of Photos will be screened at Chicago Filmmakers on March 23, 2007 as part of the 3rd I: Traveling Film South Asia Festival.

@wpqx

The forwarded mail says 'at the Chicago Filmmakers'. I assumed there is such a venue. Will try to find out more.

@A

John and Jane is a fantastic film. Glad you guys are showing it

One of our staff saw it at the Berlinale last year and was very excited when he found out that the film has finally found a german distributor. I'm looking forward to it, as I had decided to watch another film instead during the Festival which has proven a good decision (though I couldn't have known it back then, of course . It will be our only new film in March and April.
