Ravi Shankar: Between Two Worlds // Music on Film

 

Ravi Shankar is best known for his collaboration and friendship with George Harrison in the 1960s but that’s merely one small chapter in the career of the most celebrated classical Indian musician of the 20th century. Following his decades of creation and inspiration, the award-winning Between Two Worlds features original footage shot in India and the U.S. and a wealth of archival performances spanning the 1930s to the 2000s. From his work with John Coltrane and Yehudi Menuhin to his Lifetime Achievement Award from the Grammy’s, this is the definitive account of Ravi Shankar’s storied life and innovative art.

Stick around for a special post-screening Q&A hosted by Mervon Mehta, Executive Director Performing Arts at The Royal Conservatory of Music.

SYNOPSIS

What is it like to look at life from the prism of death? To look at love from the vantage of heartbreak and betrayal. And what really is sacrifice and solitude?

Vandana. Radhika. Sanjay. Priya. Ved.

Tashi tells the story of these five individuals, each at the cross road of their lives, each filled with doubts, hopes and regrets. It’s a story of Vandana’s strength fighting brain tumor. Of her daughter, Radhika’s commitment to care for her. Her son Sanjay’s sensitivity and desire to fix what he broke. Of Ved, a stranger who finds refuge with this family to weather an emotional storm. And of Priya, who is selfless, giving and sacrifices all for her children.

Tashi is a story of beautifully flawed humans and a step forward in their journey of self-discovery.

SYNOPSIS

An incredible story of courage and the human spirit, which follows international celebrity endurance athlete Samantha Gash (Australian Survivor) on her epic 3,200km purpose-fuelled adventure across India.

3,200kms of pain and suffering along the roads of India. The journey of Australian endurance athlete and passionate social advocate Samantha Gash is fraught with peril and hardship, as she runs from the sweltering heat of the Rajasthan desert in the West to the mountainous tea estates in the East.

Any personal suffering from the run is placed into perspective as Samantha has partnered with World Vision to explore the barriers that children in India face to accessing a quality education.

Through visiting over 18 communities that World Vision work with across the country, Samantha learns first-hand about the challenges they face, as well as sharing the stories of success that are providing hope for their future.

She encounters the diversity of India, which is both beautiful and challenging, as well as the complex social issues that prevent education.

It is this greater purpose and the privilege of meeting those along the way, that makes putting one foot in front of the other – the easiest thing to do.

Comedy at Canvas w/ Kumar

KUMAR: SINGAPORE’S ICONIC DRAG COMEDIAN

Kumar is undoubtedly one of the country’s leading comic and drag queen who’s been making a name for himself since the early nineties.

Believe it or not, he’s spent 20 years in the entertainment industry – conquering television, film and the stage – and is primarily known for keeping locals humored at the now defunct Boom Boom Room.

After several years of cracking relentless jokes, performing lip-synching sets, doing traditional Indian dance, and getting jiggy with hunky go-go boys, we still haven’t had enough of Kumar.

Besides this local legend’s entertainment talents, he is also admired for his bravery to speak up for queer issues and those pertaining controversial local politics.Not forgetting his love for poking fun at all things taboo in Singapore, Kumar never fails to humor us with his quirky racial and sexual observations… And the best part is, he always manages to get away with his comments from local authorities.

You might disagree with us, but we believe that Kumar will always be a prominent voice for all Singaporeans regardless of race, gender and sexual orientation.

Doors open at 7pm, show begins at 8pm.
