Support The Artists

“Support the Artistes Series” is a SPIC MACAY  initiative to support artists who make their living by promoting and  practising Indian classical and folk art forms. Due to the dire  consequence of Covid-19 lockdown restrictions, many of the artists and  craftsmen are struggling to make ends meet. 

To help them withstand the adversities we have  resolved to support the artists financially and have also undertaken  few initiatives like organizing online interactions, concerts,  workshops, and exhibitions. SPIC MACAY is known for its incredible  determination to promote Indian art and support the artists. This is one  such much-needed attempt to alleviate the suffering of artists by  providing them with adequate platforms.

 SPIC MACAY Cinema Classics presents
Wild Strawberries (1957) by Ingmar Bergman 

[Swedish (English subtitles), run time: 91 min]

Part of multiple renowned lists of best films ever made, Wild Strawberries (Smultronstället in Swedish) is considered one of the finest works of Bergman. Having won Golden Globe, Berlin's Golden Bear, and nominated for academy, BAFTA etc., the film has keenly inspired filmmakers since 50's, including stalwarts like Satyajit Ray and Woody Allen. Story follows the aged bacteriologist Prof Isak Borg (Victor Sjöström) from Stockholm to Lund. On way to receive his Doctor Jubilaris title, Isak has a confounding inwards journey towards closure and peace, where he'd relive the guilts of his steadfast life of 78 years and asses his indifferent present. An introspective script, its mesmerizing photography and the excellent actors, combine to make this film a quintessential experience for any cinema lover.

Screening will be followed by an interaction session with Prof. Gayatri Chaterjee, Film Teacher & Writer
