Event Description : 
Alliance Française de Delhi – Ciné-Club presents "Jaya Ganga" by Vijay Singh followed by a discussion with the director.

SYNOPSIS: Nishant, a young Indian writer living in Paris, is journeying down the Ganges, from its source in the Himalayas to the sea. Haunted by the fantasy, or the memory, of a beautiful Parisian woman called Jaya, he plans to write a book around his voyage.

On the banks of the Ganges, he chances upon Zehra, an irresistible poetess-dancing girl in the tradition of the great courtesans who performs in a nearby brothel. Zehra resurrects the memory of Jaya. As love casts its spell once again on Nishant, he asks Zehra to join him on his journey, but her illusory freedom is shadowed by a formidable network of the brothel spies. Nonetheless, Nishant manages to make Zehra flee and join him on his journey. Romance takes over. A new life begins for Zehra as Nishant would like her to accompany him back to Paris.
Half way down the river, at the height of their romance, Nishant receives a telegram from Jaya asking him to meet him in Benaras...
Vijay Singh is an acclaimed Indian novelist-filmmaker living in Paris. His first feature Jaya Ganga played in France and the UK cinemas for nearly a year and received stupendous press response.
The Guardian described it as “a mesmerising film, one of the most authentic depictions of everyday Indian magic ever screened,” while Le Monde remarked: “Magnificently photographed, made with a rhythm and structure of its own, this film is a homage to India, the Ganges and the madness of love.”
