This August, The Taj Enlighten Film Society will screen films made by five great directors. The films being showcased are Nine, The Aviator, Harishchandrachi Factory, Chaplin and Jaquot De Nantes.
Nine: It is a musical romantic film by Rob Marshall based on Federico Fellini's semi-autobiographical film, 8½. The film is unapologetically brash and sexy in depicting the Italian director’s life in a dazzling way.
The Aviator: Here, Martin Scorsese depicts the life of an industrialist, philanthropist and director called Howard Hughes.
Harishchandrachi Factory: A little gem of a film by Paresh Mokashi, it depicts the life of Dadasaheb Phalke, the father of Indian cinema.
Chaplin: Richard Attenborough, who created the impressive Gandhi in 1982, took Charlie Chaplin as a subject for his 1992 film. An endearing homage and a film to cherish, it’s all about Attenborough’s tribute to a great legend.
Jaquot De Nantes: It is a documentary on French director Jacques Demy by his director wife Agnès Varda.
