Film for Thought: Wednesday, 9th August 2017 at 6.30 pm Screening of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid at Sunaparanta
This Wednesday, 9th August 2017, at 6.30 pm, Sunaparanta will host the screening of ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’ at Sunaparanta Indoor gallery. Film: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)  (Colour) Directed by: George Roy Hill Written by: William Goldman Cast: Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Katherine Ross Run Time: 1 hr 50 mins About the Film Paul Newman and Robert Redford are at their charismatic best as the legendary and lovable bank-robbers who manage to stay ahead of the law by avoiding confrontation and running away whenever trouble finds them.  Joining their ride is Katherine Ross (The Graduate) who loves them both equally. Funny, action-packed, moving and romantic, the film also features the classic Oscar winning song "Raindrops Keep Falling On my Head" photographed against the backdrop of one of cinema's most memorable bike rides. Conrad Hall's brilliant cinematography and William Goldman's script also took home Oscars. Trivia: The dynamic between the talkative Butch and the stoic Sundance was used as the model for Amitabh and Dharmendra's dynamic in the Indian film "Sholay".

Film for Thought 19th July 2017 at 6.30 pm Screening of How Green Was my Valley at Sunaparanta
This Wednesday, 19th July ’17 at 6.30 pm, Sunaparanta will host the screening of ‘How Green Was My Valley’ at the Centre’s indoor gallery. Film: How Green Was My Valley (1941) Run-Time: 118 mins Director: John Ford Cast: Roddy McDowall, Walter Pidgeon, Maureen O'Hara, Donald Crisp, and Sara Allgood About the Film: Time has not been kind to John Ford's Oscar winning classic. Often seen as the film that beat Orson Welles' Citizen Kane at the 1942 Oscars, people have forgotten that the film is a fine portrait of childhood, family, love and friendship in a Welsh mining village.  One can't help but see the similarities in Satyajit Ray's masterful Pather Panchali released 14 years later. Seen through the eyes of a small boy, both capture the rhythms of daily life, the ups and downs of a poor village family with its major heartaches and minor triumphs.



Film for Thought - 12th July 2017 at 6.30 pm - Screening of 'Frances Ha' at Sunaparanta
This Wednesday, 12th July ’17 at 6.30 pm, Sunaparanta will host the screening of ‘Frances Ha’ at the Centre’s indoor gallery. Name: Frances Ha (2012)  Director: Noah Baumbach Starring: Greta Gerwig, Mickey Sumner and Adam Driver  Run time: 1 hour 26 minutes  About the film:    Frances (Greta Gerwig) a young aspiring dancer from New York faces challenges of adult life every day. She's in search of a place to stay, she has issues with her best friend, she's trying to get a better position at the dance company, all this while throwing herself into her dreams.  Frances is a funny, bold and enterprising woman who's a child at heart. Noah Baumbach has made quite a few commendable 'slice of life' films over the years with 'Frances Ha' considered to be one of his best. Baumbach's uniquely realistic mixture of drama and comedy along with Greta Gerwig's remarkable performance, make 'Frances Ha' a memorable film.

Film for Thought 5th July 2017 at 6.30 pm Screening of The Hustler at Sunaparanta
This Wednesday, 5th July ’17 at 6.30 pm, Sunaparanta will host the screening of ‘The Hustler’ at the Centre’s indoor gallery. Film: The Hustler (1961) Run-Time: 132 mins Directed by Robert Rossen Starring: Paul Newman, George C Scott, Piper Laurie, and Jackie Gleason About the Film An all-time classic and the kind of film Hollywood rarely makes anymore, Paul Newman stars in one of his most iconic roles as Fast Eddie Felson, the pool hustler who learns the hard way that in America, the system crushes talent quickly unless you let it profit from you. Along for the downbeat ride is Piper Laurie, stunning as Newman's damaged girlfriend and the legendary George C Scott as a scheming fixer. Jackie Gleason plays Minnesota Fats, the calm and dignified pool champion who's near impossible to beat. A sports film, a human drama, a touching love story and a ruthless commentary on the American Dream, this deeply personal film was Robert Rossen's finest hour, a brilliant filmmaker who was blacklisted during the Hollywood Communist witch-hunt and was eventually forced to name names to save his career.
