Today! Join us at 6:30 pm for the screening of Anitha Balachandran's animation films. She will be present after the screening for a discussion. Entry is free!
#IIHSin invites you to the screening of three animation films by Anitha Balachandran: Pudavai (2001), He Ram (2005), and Flood of Memory (2008). The director will be present for a discussion after the screening. Entry is free.

About the films:

Pudavai (1 min 30 sec): A little girl watches fascinated as her mother wears her saree- the process of folding and twisting as the piece of fabric becomes a garment, and the patterns come to life. The film uses a poem by the famous 20th century Tamil Poet Subramaniam Bharati.

He Ram (5 min 11 sec): A film on M.K Gandhis last walk was created for a site-specific exhibition commissioned by The Sacred World Research Laboratory, and housed at the Gandhi Memorial Museum, Birla House in New Delhi, the site of his assassination in 1948. The film revisits this historical moment, re-mediating archival footage and photographs and combining these with drawn animation. It is accompanied by the Kabir bhajan 'Ud Jayega Hans Akela', performed by the late Kumar Gandharva.

Located on Tees January Marg, named after the day of Gandhis passing, the museum is a landmark in the city of Delhi. It is visited by thousands every year, who encounter the film as they make their way through its entrance. For copyright reasons, the film is only screened non-commercially, so this is one of the few occasions that it will be shown outside Gandhi Smriti.

Flood of Memory (11 minutes): The film was made as a student project at the Royal College of Art in London. Four months after a flood in Barmer district in Rajasthan, the reporters and cameras have left, the chaos of official national press coverage has subsided, and local inhabitants begin to slowly come to grips with their tragedy. Their recollections form the basis of this documentary. Through conversations with local poets, social workers and farming communities, speaking in dialects of Hindi and Marwari, unfolds an unofficial account of flood, loss and resilience. The film combines live-action footage with drawn animation in sand and charcoal under the camera.

About the director:

Anitha Balachandran is an acclaimed animation filmmaker and illustrator from India. She enjoys working on non-fiction, visually fusing a range of experimental image-making techniques.

She has an MA from the Royal College of Art in London and is a graduate of the National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad, India. She currently teaches in the animation department at the Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology in Bangalore.

#OnlineFirst: How can multilateral institutions ensure sustainable urbanisation in the 21st century? Urban areas constitute over 75% of the current global economy; house more than half of the global population, and an increasing proportion of the poor and vulnerable. Sustainable cities could enable modes of #urbanisation based on highly productive, resource conserving and low-carbon economies.

#IIHSCases: What can we learn from Place-Work-Workplace entitlements about good urban living? In her case, Smita Srinivas analyses to what extent urban residents' experience in good living is related to their health, housing, education, or transport. She argues that urban living and inclusion are largely influenced by national and regional contexts of welfare in industrial transformation.
