Avalde Ammede Arimaavu is a story on ‘Cause and Effect.’ It shows the internal world of Anu, a 21 year old who suffers from Body Dysmorphia. As the story unfolds, one gets to see the degree of dysphoria she is facing, the root cause behind her current mental state as well as the catalytic factors that have contributed to her feeling this constant state of isolation. Searcher (20 mins/ English/ 2022) Dir. Divya Sachar. The artist begins an imaginative search into how she developed her Schizophrenia and wonders if trauma is passed down genetically through generations. She talks to the jamun tree in the courtyard and the tree replies in the voice of an old woman. Images of the Partition of India are used and the artist wonders if her grandmother’s traumatic past (owing to the Partition) has a role to play in her own illness or suffering. Atashi (49.50 mins/ Bengali with Eng. subtitles).Dir.Putul Mahmood. Atashi was declared mad by her family and admitted to a mental hospital. Once out of the mental hospital, she fell in love and ‘plotted’ her own recovery.

    FILM - New Ibero-American Cinema. The Lunchroom (Argentina /2019/ Spanish/ 78 mins). Dir. Ezequiel Radusky. Lila and Marcela have always worked as cleaning staff in a state agency. They know its nooks and crannies like no one else and have invented a way of subsistence —and a dream— managing a completely irregular dining room in an abandoned corner of the building. But times change: a new director arrives, with her cynical speeches full of commonplaces, and with her the empty promises, the closing of the dining room and a wave of dismissals that destroy the precarious balance of life in the State and transform the everyday tasks into a struggle for survival. It premiered at Mar del Plata International Film Festival, where Liliana Juárez was awarded the ‘Silver Astor for Best Actress,’ and was the winner of the ‘Best Film Award’ at the Huelva Film Festival in Spain.Collab. Instituto Cervantes in association with the Huelva Ibero-American Film Festival.
