“Talking about dreams is like talking about movies, since the cinema uses the language of dreams; years can pass in a second, and you can hop from one place to another. It’s a language made of image. And in the real cinema, every object and every light means something, as in a dream.”
Cinema is as much an escape from the ordinary as it is a way of understanding our reality. It captures our hearts through the play of emotions and stays on, forever. Some might call cinema as literary beauty in motion! To celebrate this idea, Scribe : The Literary Society of Hindu College is organising a Film Appreciation fest.
Scribe – the Literary Society of Hindu College is one of the most prominent and prolific societies dedicated to literary activities in the University of Delhi.
Acknowledging and celebrating cinematic wizardry, here follows a detailed account of all the exciting activities planned for the two-day event on November 1 and 2 :
