We are both sad and happy to tell you that the second volume of our annual magazine is now exhausted from most of the Kolkata book stalls. Single copies may be available still at Kundu Book Stall (Jadavpur), Gyaner Aalo (Jadavpur), Dhyanbindu (College St). Henceforth the few remaining copies of this volume will be available only from our own festival & book stall - till stocks last.
For a list of documentary DVDs, distributed by volunteers from locations in and around Kolkata (namely, Jadavpur, Patuli, Dumdum, New Alipore, Sinthir More, Chinar Park, Behala, Kalighat, Bally and Uttarpara), please visit our online stall:http://corkolkata.wordpress.com/the-cor-stall/. By purchasing these DVDs, you would be contributing towards present and future projects of the independent filmmakers making these films.

ABOUT US: Cinema of Resistance (Kolkata Chapter) organizes an annual film festival, called the Kolkata People's Film Festival, in the third week of January. Throughout the year, we organize monthly film screenings in Kolkata and also travel in Kolkata and its neighbouring districts (such as North and South 24 Pargnas, Hooghly, Howrah, Birbhum, Nadia etc.) to screen films and hold discussions/dialogues on invitation from non-funded like-minded groups, unions and organizations. We are particularly interested in screening among workers, women, children and young adults, civil society groups and folks in general who are allies of people's movements.
To organize a show in your locality please write firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at 9163736863. We will get back to you.
