(Doc Film) Wildes Skandinavien - Das Abenteuer (Wild Scandinavia - The Adventure): (German/2013/53mins) Dir.Heiko De Groot Rugged fjords, erupting volcanoes, cliffy coasts and primeval forests - the series "Wild Scandinavia" presents the untamed nature in Northern Europe in breath-taking pictures. Far from human settlements the film crews managed to capture impressive, never seen scenes of polar bears, musk oxen, brown bears, arctic foxes or elks. "The Adventure" takes a look behind the scenes and features the sometimes dangerous, sometime bizarre and exciting adventures of the nature film makers during their three years filming work. The four teams have been out in the most remote regions from Denmark to Greenland and Iceland to Finland - to document unique animal behaviour and the breathtaking landscapes of the far North, spanning four years of production with almost 2.000 shooting days in the field.

Spanish Film - The Mushrooms
Calvin, who comes from a middle-class family, is enrolled in an art course at college, and spends most of his time taking care of his ailing grandmother. He uses his time at granny’s house to watch Arab Spring videos and plot out his illegal painting projects, which are meant to express some sense of political solidarity. Ras lives with his black and deeply religious family in a far poorer part of Cali, and Navia is sensitive to the ethnic differences and economic disparities of his hometown, using atmospheric tracking shots to establish a sense of place. He’s also good at letting the background action convey thematic information, as in a televised appearance by Calvin’s political-activist father and a scene where Ras’ mother sings an a cappella ballad. At the same time, the characters’ lack of direction seems to infect the movie itself. Like Calvin and Ras, it may be that Los Hongos is too aimless to really leave its own mark.

Theatre Weekend

(Hindi) Taj Mahal Ka Tender: What would have been the fate of Shah Jahan's Taj Mahal had the emperor lived in the present times? That's the theme of this hilarious burlesque. The persistent Shahjahan, in no mood to accept excuses for delays, sends the Government construction department into a tizzy. The engineers and overseers get down to business to fulfill emperor's wish, as if they really could. An outbreak of activities ensue but in typified sarkari manner. Tenders are issued. Contractors are hired. But, does the project see light of the day? Or, does the mogul emperor, fast forwarded in the time, become a victim of the system himself? Whatever may happen to the wonder tomb, but the lofty laughter castles are assured, as the curtain raises on 'Taj Mahal ka Tender'.
Time: Nov 29, 7.00pm
