The things we do. In the future – near and far.
Before the Part II releases, we’re showing this amazing classic incl. a Q&A with the director Richard Schenkman – so you can finally get answers to all the questions you have always wanted to ask!
With the friendly support of MovieSaints.
Imagine there would be humans who have been living since the beginning of humanity. Not like vampires, but like normal people, stuck at 40 – without ageing further.
Imagine the things they would know! Their wisdom! What would they be able to share with people like us who live a mere 80 years?
This is the story of such a human.
The film begins with Professor John Oldman (David Lee Smith) packing his belongings onto his truck, preparing to move to a new home.
His colleagues show up to give him an impromptu farewell party: Harry (John Billingsley), a biologist; Edith (Ellen Crawford), an art history professor and devout Christian; Dan (Tony Todd), an anthropologist; Sandy (Annika Peterson), a historian who is in love with John; Dr. Will Gruber (Richard Riehle), a psychiatrist; Art (William Katt), an archaeologist; and his student Linda (Alexis Thorpe).
As John’s colleagues press him to explain the reason for his departure, he slowly, and somewhat reluctantly, reveals that he is a prehistoric caveman who has lived for more than 14 millennia, and that he relocates every ten years to keep others from realizing that he does not age.
With gripping dialogues, this film plays with our minds and we promise it won’t leave you for very long!
AFTER THE SCREENING, THE DIRECTOR WILL JOIN US FOR A Skype Q&A.
With the friendly support of MovieSaints!!
Cook up a story
Or lose my way;
Discover a shade of gray,
Imagine its night
when its day…
What’s childhood then anyway?
Ever heard of a Sunday recipe like this one: A quick shot of tug of war, followed by a high protein shake of Lock and Key, Tippy -Tippy tap, Four corners, Chain, Pitthoo, Statue, Blind Man’s buff, Hopscotch and then? A crispy buttery toast of masala poetry and rhyme. And dessert of more games?
A workshop of theatre games to challenge your mind, body & soul!
In the end, as the performer becomes one with the water, he invites the audience to reestablish their primal bond with this enchanting element.
Special Thanks to Roberto Frabetti & Teatre La Baracca for being an inspiration.
Harkat is proud to present Mumbai’s only 16mm film festival.
As we zoom past Instagram filters, automated editing apps on our phones and countless banal videos on our timeline, Harkat wants to travel back to a time of Celluloid. It seems almost utopian now, a time where film making was slow, meticulous and reserved for the select few patient enough to spend hours and hours on formulating a piece of art which could only be admired in a cinema hall, but we believe it is doable.
We want to relive the magic of churning a film through a projector onto a speckless cloth, evoking the tangible quality of the medium.
Aram Nagar, originally a refugee colony used to screen 16mm films during the 60’s & 70’s in the central community ‘maidaan’. The dynamic has now shifted to it being a bustling film and theatre neighborhood, keeping in mind the historical context of the neighborhood we are situated in, we are proud to present a 16mm film festival, showing contemporary and classic films, along with workshops and talks.
The festival has four sections as of now, an experimental film screening section, a commercial screening section, an interactive workshop with a talk on 16mm film and a section where we facilitate young film makers to make their own 16mm films.
We are accepting entries till the 15h November 2017
To submit your films, kindly log onto: https://filmfreeway.com/festival/Harkat16mmFestival
Please note: We are only accepting films shot in 16mm film format.
