Malleswaram Events

Monday 23rd Jan 2012, 7pm

Join us for the premiere of Lost Sequel and People Portrait
Two new chapters of 

Lost Sequel – On 29th Dec 2011, Elgin Talkies in Shivajinagar joined the ranks of Bangalore’s ever expanding list of lost heritage as it quietly changed hands and closed without a murmur.

We understand that the new owners propose to demolish the structure and replace it with a wedding hall. Luckily, the old owner agreed to let us film the cinema’s last week, though he didnt want any publicity whatsoever during the transition period. Lost Sequel traces Elgin’s story and raises questions about privately owned heritage.

Though we planned to document Shivajinagar at a later date, it will be the first episode of Blackpally Diaries. The team is currently working towards Malleswaram Diaries, which is being launched with,

People Portraits – 3 short portraits of contemporary artists and Malleswaram residents – Vasundhara Das, Abhijeet Tambe and Geeta and Gopal Navale. Each describing their connection to the neighbourhood and how Malleswaram has shaped their artistic careers.

As part of our Neighbourhood Diaries project the 2 chapters follow on from our successful Whitefield Diaries.
