The Film Society had invited the Help Age India (NGO) for screening of the movie Clips. The movie clips showcased “the problems faced by elderly persons/ senior citizens and old age parents.”
About the Film:
The film clips’ highlighted the problems faced by the old age parents and senior citizens. The series of films were based on the loneliness; hunger and struggle of elder people with their children. In the 1st film, named as Pizza Boy, a wheel chair bound old man locked the door and threw away the key when the pizza boy entered in his house to have a company with him for a moment whereas in the 2nd film Paradise, a well-dressed old age person came to a girl who feeding pigeons, ask for the pigeons food. He took the food from girl and ate that hiding behind a pillar. In one of the clip a senior citizen made the very strong statement that “we are still alive not dead”. This made the students rethink about the elder people and about their dull life. These movies left a great impact on the students’ minds.
