The We Care film Festival 2011 opened yesterday at the NALCO AUDITORIUM with various films and documentaries from around the world which portrayed the message that disability is not the barrier to do things. As we entered the theatre, some film on a leper was been screened. It went to show that how the leper was being ostracised and had to live all his life in an abandoned toilet outside his village.
This was followed by a competition segment where film makers from the state showcased their their one/ three/ five minute short films. Some of them were really good. A couple of them reminded you of your first birthday’s home video though, complete with a bad sound design and ‘that shaky camera work.’ By the way, we had Govind Nihalani as one of the jury members. He seemed to be an amazing person. We tried photographing him unsuccessfully though. There was this Ollywood star too who used to wear yellow trousers and ride a Hero Honda Splendor in dance sequences in almost every movie of his.
Err, correction. That was Hero Motocorp I guess. Either ways, yesterday’s was an evening well spent.
The event is open today as well. Please drop by if it is possible.
Venue- Nalco Auditorium.
Gates open at 12 in the noon.
