ನನ್ನ ಸಂದರ್ಭದಲ್ಲಿ ಪರ್ಯಾಯ ಸಿನೆಮಾ

ಕಳೆದ ತಿಂಗಳು "ನನ್ನ ಸಂದರ್ಭದಲ್ಲಿ ಪರ್ಯಾಯ ಸಿನಿಮಾ" ಚಿಂತನಾ ಕೂಟದಲ್ಲಿ ಭಾಗಿಯಾಗುವ ಅವಕಾಶ ನನ್ನದಾಯಿತು. ಇದು ಸಂವಾದ.ಕಾಂ ಹಾಗೂ ಕನ್ನಡಸಾಹಿತ್ಯ.ಕಾಂ ಜೊತೆಗೂಡಿ ಗಿರೀಶ್ ಕಾಸರವಳ್ಳಿ ಅವರ ಗೌರವಾರ್ಥ ಆಯೋಜಿಸಿದ ಸಿನೆಮಾ ರಸಗ್ರಹಣ ಶಿಬಿರ.

ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ರಮದ ಕೇಂದ್ರಬಿಂದು - ಶ್ರೀ ಗಿರೀಶ್ ಕಾಸರವಳ್ಳಿ

ಈ ಪತ್ರ "ನನ್ನ ಸಂದರ್ಭದಲ್ಲಿ ಪರ್ಯಾಯ ಸಿನಿಮಾ" ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ರಮದ ಅನುಭವವಲ್ಲ. ಅದರಿಂದ ಪ್ರೇರಿತ.
A cinema can Impress, Influence, and/or Inspire (i3) us. ಯಾವ ಚಿತ್ರ i3 ಆಗಬಲ್ಲದು ಎಂಬುದು ಹೇಳುವುದು ಸಾಧ್ಯವಿಲ್ಲ. ಅದು commercial film ಅಥ್ವಾ ಅಪರೂಪಕ್ಕೆ ಕಲಾತ್ಮಕ ಚಿತ್ರ ಯಾವುದಾದರೂ ಆಗಬಹುದು. ಇಲ್ಲಿ "ಅಪರೂಪ" ಎಂದು ಬರೆದದ್ದಕ್ಕೆ ಕಾರಣವಿದೆ. ಕಲಾತ್ಮಕ ಸಿನಿಮಾ ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯರ ಆಯ್ಕೆ ಅಲ್ಲ. ಅದೇನಿದ್ರು serious film critique's choice. ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯವಾಗಿ ಇಂತಹ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳ ಹೂರಣ ಸಮಾಜದ ಹುಳುಕು ಮತ್ತು ಉತ್ತಮ ಜಗತ್ತಿನ ಕನಸು. ವ್ಯಂಗ್ಯ ಅಂದ್ರೆ ಯಾರ ನೋವು ನಲಿವನ್ನ ಈ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಸೆರೆ ಹಿಡಿಯಲಾಗಿರತ್ತೋ ಅವರೇ ಅದನ್ನ ನೋಡೋಲ್ಲ. ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಬದಲಾಗಬೇಕಿರುವುದು ಯಾವುದು? ಸಿನೆಮಾ ಮಾಡುವ ರೀತಿಯೋ ಅಥವಾ ನೋಡುಗರೋ?
ಚಲನಚಿತ್ರಗಳನ್ನ ಮನರಂಜನೆಗೆ ನೋಡುವವರ ಸಂಖ್ಯೆ ಹೆಚ್ಚು. ನೀವು ಯಾವಾಗಲಾದರು "ನಾನು frame by frame ಅರ್ಥ ಮಾಡ್ಕೊತೀನಿ" ಅಂತ ಥಿಯೇಟರಿಗೆ ಹೋಗ್ತೀರ…

Creativity and Innovation

I have a habit of making a draft of the posts, keep it for few days/months. Read it. Re-Read it. After all that if I find it convincing I am all set to post it. Below is one such post with a little difference. I've not written this post, don't even remember the source or why I saved it, but feeling it's worth sharing with my creative blog pals.

Are you a question generating machine? Then u surely an inventor.

“If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?” Einstein Inspiration can start the process, but no matter how complete the initial idea, inventions typically have to be developed.
For example, Amabile et al. (1996) suggest that while innovation "begins with creative ideas,"
"...creativity by individuals and teams is a starting point for innovation; the first is a necessary but not sufficient condition for the second."If it was there why didn't I find it or u found. A situation and so many ways to so…

jiska khoon nahi khaula .....

woh khoon nahi paani hai... so rightly said. If your blood is not boiling after what has happened in Mumbai you don't have the right to say you are an Indian or Citizen of any country. You can't find one Indian who's not talking about the Mumbai Terror attack. There is a wave of change. This shouldn’t settle down. Instead, it should become a movement against terrorism. Everyone is angry with the current system. Translate this anger into a driving force. Let it lead us to Peace and Harmony. Don’t let this terror attack fade away, like so many in the past. Speak out and start an unstoppable war against terrorism so the future would see the word “terrorism” only in the pages of the History.

Thanks to dear friend Asha for forwarding this poem to me. It's a wake-up call for all.
First they came for the Communists,and I didn't speak up, because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews,and I didn't speak up, because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the Cat…
