Luminate@ DCA: arts across the generations

We are delighted to be working in partnership with Dundee Contemporary Arts to deliver a two day intergenerational arts programme. Open to the public and professionals, this programme will showcase great intergenerational work, and offers the opportunity to come along and participate in some art.

Have a look at the full programme details below: 

Sunday 4 November 

Film screening: 5 Rupees

Time: 11:15am

Where: DCA Cinema

£6 (Standard)/ £5 (Under 21s)  

Seven-year old Hamid lives with his grandmother in a small village at the foot of the Himalayas. Although poor, they have a very happy life together, and their loving relationship is the envy of many other families in the community. When his grandmother promises him a whole five rupee coin to celebrate the approaching Eid festival, Hamid is thrilled. A travelling funfair is in the next village, and Hamid and his classmates see a golden opportunity to celebrate the public holiday in style. Will this small dream of his come true – and if it does, will it come at a cost? Based on a short story, this is a simple tale beautifully told, with glorious cinematography and outstanding performances – one by a first timer on screen and the other a legend of the Indian film industry, actress Shabana Azmi. Full of beauty, this film is a powerful depiction of the moments in our younger years when true innocence was a time of hope and happiness. How would you choose to spend your five rupees?
