Cinema Classic: MODERN TIMES (1936) BY CHARLIE CHAPLIN (Duration: 87 Minutes)

Modern Times is a 1936 American silent comedy film written and directed by Charlie Chaplin in which his iconic Little Tramp character struggles to survive in the modern, industrialized world. The film is a commentary on the desperate employment and financial conditions many people faced during the Great Depression conditions created, in Chaplin’s view, by the efficiencies of modern industrialization. It is notable for being the last time that Chaplin portrayed the Tramp character and for being the first time Chaplin’s voice is heard on film.

Screening was followed by an interaction session with  Dr. Ashok Aswani, Founder,  Charlie Chaplin Circle Group.

Cinema Classic: WILD STRABERRIES (1957) BY INGMER BERGMAN,

Swedish (English subtitles), (Duration: 91 minutes)

Part of multiple renowned lists of best films ever made, Wild Strawberries (Smultronstället in Swedish) is considered one of the finest works of Bergman. Having won Golden Globe, Berlin’s Golden Bear, and nominated for academy, BAFTA etc., the film has keenly inspired filmmakers since 50’s, including stalwarts like Satyajit Ray and Woody Allen. Story follows the aged bacteriologist Prof Isak Borg (Victor Sjöström) from Stockholm to Lund. On way to receive his Doctor Jubilaris title, Isak has a confounding inwards journey towards closure and peace, where he’d relive the guilts of his steadfast life of 78 years and asses his indifferent present. An introspective script, its mesmerizing photography and the excellent actors, combine to make this film a quintessential experience for any cinema lover.

Screening was followed by an interaction session with Prof. Gayatri Chaterjee, Film Teacher & Writer
