You are invited to an upcoming film screening by Paromita Vohra at Tamarind Art on Friday, 2 November at 6:30pm. Paromita is a filmmaker and writer, whose work focuses on gender, popular culture and politics. Her films have been widely screened at festivals and museums worldwide. Some of the films she has made are Q2P, which was awarded the Best Documentary Award at the IFFLA and Stuttgart festivals, besides being exhibited at the Tate Modern. The two films being screened at Tamarind Art have won the Best Indo-British Digital Film Festival award.

About the films:

Where’s Sandra, is a playful look at the figure “Sandra from Bandra” part covetous fantasy of the racy Christian girl from Bombay who works as a secretary, wears a dress and likes to dance; part condescending stereotype of a dowdy religious girl from a minority community.

Cosmopolis: Two Tales of a City looks at divisions of language, class, memory, and food, and queries the myths of Bombay as a great cosmopolitan city.

Paromita will be present during and after the screening for Q&A.

Screening on 2 November 2007 at 6:30pm
