Event Description : 
On the occasion of International Day for Older Persons 2019, Kriti Film Club invites you to the screening of Pichla Varka (The Previous Page)

The Film will be followed by a discussion with the filmmaker.

About the Film: Dadi and her friends share a common history; of being Partition refugees who came to India after the state of Pakistan was created and eventually settled in the capital of Delhi. They also remain the last generation of people who can ever tell us again what the partition of Punjab was like, or what even pre-partition India was like.

Pichla Varka looks at the experiences of ordinary women who experienced the violence and uncertainty of leaving their homeland (their mulk) to enter a new country in 1947. How does history play out on ordinary lives and where do households and properties merge.

About the Filmmaker: Priyanka Chhabra’s work explores the themes of memory, landscape and relationships of people to places. Her previous films include A Summer Flu, Shape of Trees, Shame was a place inside and The Furnished Room. Her work has been exhibited at Oberhausen, Rotterdam, York, Calagary, Mumbai and Kerala. She currently lives and works out of Manali.

About the Producer: The Public Service Broadcasting Trust (2000) is a pioneering non-governmental, not-for-profit organisation based in New Delhi, that commissions, mentors and produces independent documentary films.

About the Kriti Film Club: This is an educational initiative of a not-for-profit organisation 'Kriti team'. We screen and share documentary films on development, environment and socially relevant issues, in an effort to influence mindsets and behaviour towards an equitous, just and peaceful world. We also curate issue based film festivals and organise documentary film shows in neighbourhoods, communities, schools, colleges or institutions on request and otherwise. The Kriti Film Club has been screening documentaries regularly and independently (without any funding) in Delhi NCR since 2000 and in Mumbai since 2019, to promote 'thought-provoking cinema'.
