Nostalgia for the Future

28 December 2016

Direction: Avijit Mukul Kishore, Rohan Shivkumar
Produced by: Films Division India

The Godrej India Culture Lab hosted a special screening of the documentary ‘Nostalgia for the Future’. How was the ‘modern’ Indian nation created? What was the utopian zeal of creating a new model of citizenry? Where did the new citizen reject the old-fashioned and feudal systems of the past? ‘Nostalgia for the Future’ is an exploration of all these questions and more, an insight into the aspiration towards modernity and the intimate spaces that ideal citizens were to inhabit.

Anita

In October 1991, an entire country watched transfixed as a poised, beautiful African-American woman in a blue dress sat before a Senate committee of 14 white men. With a clear, unwavering voice, Anita Hill recounted the repeated acts of sexual harassment she had endured while working with U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. Her testimony was a turning point for gender equality in the U.S. and ignited a political firestorm about sexual misconduct and power in the workplace that resonates even today. 19 March 2015
