International Films in Focus

The fifth edition of the Habitat International Film Festival is here, showcasing 60 films from over 30 countries. This year, the festival puts the spotlight on Germany as the country of focus. Additionally, the festival aims to highlight movies that address women-centric issues. Some noteworthy films include "Shayda" by Iranian-Australian filmmaker Noora Niasar, which explores the immigrant experience, and "Inshallah A Boy," Jordan's official entry to the Oscars 2023. The "New Voices" segment introduces films like "The Ordinaries" by Sophie Linnenbaum, "Orphea In Love" by Alex Ranisch, and "Sisi And I" by Frauke Finsterwalder. The festival runs until March 17 at India Habitat Centre in Delhi.

Threading an Artistic Story

A unique exhibition called "Iterum" is currently showcasing the collaborative work of designer-artist duo Rahul Jain and Gunjan Arora, known as Theadarte. Curated by Monica Jain, the exhibition challenges the conventions of textile-based art. The duo creates large-scale installations using just a handful of threads, delving into the concepts of reality and the passage of time. Inspired by the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, the works symbolize the binding of everyday realities. You can experience this artistic exploration at Art Centrix in Delhi until March 30.

A Black Truffle Extravaganza
