Event Description : 
DOC FILM & DISCUSSION : Kriti Film Club invites you to celebrate the 20th Birthday of Kriti team with the the India Premiere of "Suryaganga (SunGanges)" 

The Film will be followed by a discussion with one of the crew and Alok Raj Gupta (a Kriti team volunteer and young energy and envrionment expert)

About the Film: When the Ganges riverbed dries up in the Himalayas due to intensified damming, curious 6 yr old, Anu who has been hearing wonderful mythological stories about the river, asks "if the river is not there, why read stories about it?" Mom Valli decides to get some answers. And so they pack their bags and with brother Marthand set out on an adventure across the vast Indian landscape filming the social and environmental (specifically water) impact of big energy projects - hydro and coal and witness the rise of solar and wind. A wild and intense ride, SunGanges continuously dives right into the heart of matters. In the process of filming, the makers meet actor Naseeruddin Shah who adds a dubious yet not entirely unfamiliar dimension to the subject.

Duration : 1 hour 12 mins.

Year : 2019

About the film makers and team:

Language : English

Editor & Director: Valli Bindana
Valli Bindana, Writer Editor Director - Valli began her career as an advertising copywriter with McCann Erickson and Foote Cone & Belding Ulka. She launched, among other brands, Tropicana, LML Bikes, Radisson, Habanos Cigars in India, conceptualizing, scripting and creating ad campaigns for them. A travel bug within, led her on a detour to the then start-up which she helped launch as Content Manager. Soon feeling the need to give her writing a more dynamic life Valli stepped back into the realm of film, making her first documentary feature SunGanges.

Executive Producer: Marthand Bindana
Marthand Bindana, Camera, Exec Producer - Marthand has led teams to create animation films for education purposes for leading content provider Educomp Ltd. He nurtures an eye for photography in the wild giving a whole new perspective to animals, insects, birds and all things natural. Marthand holds his photography work rather close to himself, so get in touch with him if you need to see some gems. Currently working with an NGO in the Himalayas to train farmers in organic farming. SunGanges is his first documentary feature film. 

Naseeruddin Shah, Commentator & Critic - Naseer is one of the finest stage & film actors India has known. He has won numerous awards in his career, including three National Film Awards, three Filmfare Awards and an award at the Venice Film Festival. The Government of India has honoured him with the Padma Shri and then the Padma Bhushan for his contributions to Indian cinema. The list of accolades is long. And since we wonder if any of his own achievements impress him in any serious way, let’s leave it at that.
