Review: Nirbhaya is a Theatrical Journey of Emotions


Holding an arm up each, two fingers and thumb raised, three women and a man from among the audience walk up the aisles to join a white-clad actress gently hum-singing on a dimly lit smoky stage. The song: an old Indian classic about society’s transgressions on woman’s honour and love. There are no curtains for this one. Story by Balkaran Singh   Be prepared to be swept away, wrenched, and emotionally relocated. Nirbhaya is not just a play. It is an expression of a movement,... Read More

VIFF Film Review: Ville-Marie is an Unconventional Ode to Life

Ville Marie VIFF

Ville-Marie is a film both ingrained with life – and reflective of it – opening with death and closing with a newborn baby. VIFF Review by Nimritta Parmar This polarity between life and death is inherent throughout the film. Reminiscent of Crash (Paul Haggis, 2004), Ville-Marie follows various individual characters whose stories are intertwined in ways they don’t realize. The film opens with 21-year-old Thomas standing at a bus stop, when a tragedy sets a series... Read More
