Urban Colloquium

Addendum to the 5th meet

And as if the Global Studio thunderbolt wasn’t enough, Ajeetha Ranganathan did a special screening of ‘Atlantis- A Garden Imprisoned’ for us!!!! This is a short film that she produced as a culmination of her masters design thesis at Oxford Brookes University, UK. In her own words (which I think describe it in the best way possible), it is an exploration of the probable architectural settings of a contemporary fairy-tale through the medium of film.
Please see the link below for the video itself as well as a synopsis of what it is about.

Unfortunately we ran out of time at the Startup Centre and missed out on a post-screening discussion. Can we have some thoughts on Ajeetha’s maiden short film venture?? Any questions?? How many of you guessed all the fairy tales that were reinterpreted?? And what were they??? :)
