Songs Of Protest : I&EYE culminates on 19th Aug 2011 at WWI campus in Filmcity, Mumbai. It will unveil a viral campaign created by the students of WWI for an Independent music album Songs of Protest – a collection of revolutionary songs from the tumultuous 40’s and the 50’s.
The unusual album, produced by Susmit Sen (Founder & Lead Guitarist, Indian Ocean) was born out of economist Sumangala Damodaran’s Research & Documentation Project that aims to explore a forgotten musical tradition of the Songs of Protest sung during pre- independence days (ie from the 1940s and 1950s) by the artists of IPTA – the Indian People’s Theatre Association.
The BIG DEBATE : DOCUMENTARY , after all, can tell lies. And it can tell lies because it lays claim to a form of veracity which the fiction doesn’t.
Panelists : Bishakha Datta, Paromita Vora
