"The noise is too much.
We are intensely in love with our own voices.
Rest is just a cacophony.
Let us hope that sanity will return,
Because the cacophony has distinct stories,
Waiting for our ears."

Quotes from the Earth
Water. Hunger. Survival: films and the environment

Toxics Link and India International Centre present 'Quotes from the Earth',
an exploration of films and the environment, to be held at IIC, New Delhi,
from January 22 to 24 2004. The festival is part of the India International
Centre's 42nd Annual Day celebrations.

The festival aims at offering a grounded view of the word 'Environment' by
relating it to current perspectives, through the medium of films which have
engaged with some of the critical environmental issues in India.

It also goes beyond viewing films. A panel discussion gathering eminent
academicians, grassroots activists and film-makers is planned every
afternoon on the issues the festival focuses on. In the evenings will be
screened long-length international documentaries / feature films.

Along with the festival, 'Audio Installation in a Visual Sauce', a media
space on the environment designed by Pradip Saha, photographer, film-maker
and managing editor of 'Down to Earth' magazine, is set up in the Art
Gallery, IIC Annexe, Lodhi Estate, from 21st to 25th January.

The festival programme is available on www.toxicslink.org/earthquotes

Please, also note that the films screened as part of the 'Quotes from the
Earth' film festival will be available as a traveling package for further
screenings around the country. If you would like to take up the initiative
