Chandigarh Creative Cinema Circle, 4C, is back with their monthly event, "Sunday with Director". The filmmakers this month are Shilpi Gulati and Calib Logan. Delhi-based documentary filmmaker, activist and theatre artist Gulati has a background in literature, media and cultural studies. Her work revolves around issues concerning women, minority communities and ideas of nationhood. Her films to be screened include Dere Tun Dilli, which is about a small place named Dera Ismail Khan in Pakistan. The film challenges the notion of history as something distant and unflinching. It records the tales of a divided country, of refugees and their struggles across borders. Gulati has made the film along with fellow filmmaker Divya Cowasji. Another film with Cowasji that will be screened is Inside Out, based on women in public spaces. How thin is the line of acceptable conduct in public for a woman and what happens if one dares to cross it is the focus of the film. Gulati's third film, There Are No Borders Here made along with filmmaker Parool Sharma, will also be showcased. This experimental documentary comments on the fear of living in a metropolitan city in the midst of political chaos.
Amritsar-born Logan will screen his film Try to Understand, a love story without any dialogues. A crowd funded event, there is no entry fee for the audience, and the short films will be screened on Sunday, November 25, between 5 pm-8 pm at Lala Lajpat Rai Bhawan, Sector-15, Chandigarh.
