Bangalore International Centre had arranged the screening of the documentary film “The Human Factor” directed byMr. RudradeepBhattacharjee, who was present to interact with the audience. The film was screened on Saturday, 26th October. 2013 at 6.00 PM
The film unfurls the history of songs those have been an integral part of Indian films. The singers, the music directors, the lyricists - they have all been celebrated for their work and many have attained legendary status.
'The Human Factor' tells the fascinating story of the Lords, a Parsi family of musicians who collectively worked for over 60 years in Mumbai’s film orchestras. But the story of the Lords is not theirs alone. It also remains a crucial but obscure chapter in the history of Indian cinema.
In the centenary year of Indian cinema, this documentary - replete with rare archival material - will provide viewers with a subaltern history of Bollywood. The film was screened during the following film Festivals- New York Indian Film Festival (World Premiere), International Documentary & Short Film Festival, Kerala (National Competition) and Indisches Film Festival StuttgartFilm South Asia (in Oct)
The sensitively made film with vintage music from films made in yesteryears was a retreat for the audience which had gathered.
The interactive session after the screening was very interesting also.
