Arthshila Ahmedabad’s Film Showcase this week features ‘Turup’ by Ektara Collective.
Chess is a popular pastime in the neighbourhood with roadside games bringing together men from different strata. Their pawns include morality and religion, causing social and political tensions to erupt when a tournament gets underway. But the men are only the most visible players. Against this simmering backdrop, a domestic worker with a secret hobby, a young woman in love and a former journalist struggling with married life must make their moves with care. When caste, class, religion and gender come into play, there are boundaries to be negotiated, and the very rules of the game stand challenged.
Join us for the screening at 5.30 pm on 2 June 2023 (Friday) and at 11.00 am on 3 – 4 June 2023 (Saturday – Sunday).
