Film for Thought: Sports Fever @ Sunaparanta - Film Screenings on 11, 12, 18, 19, 26 June & 3 July 2019

It’s world-cup time and to celebrate this month and half of non-stop sport we present ‘Sports Fever @ Sunaparanta’.  Over the next 4 weeks we will showcase six “sports” films that explore the sports field as a metaphor for the game of life.  Presented by Arvind Sivakumaran, the films will be screened at Sunaparanta indoor gallery on 11th, 12th, 18th, 19th, 26th June & 3rd July 2019

Films scheduled as below:

Tuesday, 11th June ’19 (Basketball) 

Film: Hoosiers (1986)

Starring: Gene Hackman, Dennis Hopper

Duration: 1 hr 55 mins

Recently voted “the fourth best sports film of all time” by The American Film Institute, ‘Hoosiers’ features one of Hackman’s most under-rated performances as the coach of a small-town high-school basketball team.

 

Wednesday, 12th June ’19 (Athletics) 

Film: Chariots of Fire (1981)

Starring: Ian Charleson, Ian Holm, Ben Cross

Duration: 2 hrs 5 mins

The winner of the 1981 Oscar for Best Picture is remembered mainly for Vangelis’ moving and ethereal music score but is also a beautifully directed drama of two British athletes competing in the 1924 Paris Olympics – one runs to fight bigotry and the other for the greater glory of God.

 

Tuesday, 18th June ’19 (Golf) 

Film: Tin Cup (1996)

Starring: Kevin Costner, Rene Russo

Duration: 2 hrs 14 mins

Kevin Costner shines as the loser golf “pro” in this romantic sports comedy who’s always had the talent but not the temperament to make it in the big league. Fate gives him another chance to overcome his mental baggage and finally achieve glory but can he overcome his self destructive nature and win the US open or will he forever remain the “great” that no one has heard of?

 

Wednesday, 19th June ’19 (Baseball) 

Film: The Natural (1984)

Starring: Robert Redford

Duration: 2 hrs 18 mins

With a strong emphasis on myth, mysticism and divinity, this allegorical and inspirational adaptation of Bernard Malamud’s novel is a beautifully shot and inspiring parable of Roy Hobbs, the late bloomer who lost his way at a young age but returns to defy age and prove the adage that that you can never put down real talent even in the sports world where youth always has the advantage. 

 

Wednesday, 26th June ’19 (Football) 

Film: Fever Pitch (1997)

Starring: Colin Firth

Duration: 1 hr 42 mins

A film that deals with the fan rather than the sportsman, Colin Firth is excellent in an early comedic role as the football mad Arsenal fanatic whose loyalty to the football club threatens his peace of mind and romantic relationship with his football-averse schoolteacher colleague.

 

Wednesday, 3rd July ’19 (Chess) 

Film: Searching for Bobby Fischer (1993)

Starring: Ben Kingsley

Duration: 1 hr 49 mins

The “sports film with rare intelligence”, Steve Zaillian’s introspective drama follows a young child prodigy Josh, as he grapples with the different approaches, strategies and techniques thrown at him by chess coaches and parents who try to cultivate the next Bobby Fischer.



Film for Thought: 5 June 2019, 6.30 pm - Screening of `The Place Beyond the Pines' at Sunaparanta

This Wednesday, 5th June 2019 at 6.30 pm, Sunaparanta will host the screening of the film ‘The Place Beyond the Pinesat the indoor gallery, presented by Arvind Sivakumaran

Film: The Place Beyond the Pines (2012)

Written & Directed by: Derek Cianfrance

Cast: Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, Mahershala Ali, Dane DeHaan, Ray Liotta, Ben Mendelsohn, Rose Byrne

Duration: 2 hrs 18 mins

“I believe in ancestry and legacy and how things don’t go away”- Cianfrance

This under-rated and ambitious thriller-drama about the cycle of inherited poverty and privilege is uniquely structured, deeply moving and features some of the best performances of future stars Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper.

A harsh indictment of the ‘mythical’ American dream, Cianfrance examines the great disparity between the poor whose lack of options ensures their constant struggle for survival and the white elites whose privilege never leaves them.

The film also poses these important questions-

Who are the real criminals? What’s the difference between lawbreakers and its upholders? Does privilege ever go away or is it simply passed on from generation to generation?

A talented, budding singer-songwriter finds herself on her own in a big city after being dumped by her boyfriend and songwriting partner when he gets a big break.  A chance meeting with a struggling record producer transforms both their lives as they collaborate to record an album.  Begin Again is aptly named and is another music film by Irish writer-director John Carney known for his 2007 film, Once.
