RCB Film Club is proud to present September's four dynamic films by four individualistic directors.

Having all won awards and creating waves at festivals around the world, these films include three from Asia – Under Construction, Mindfullness and Murder, and The Bit Player – and Oscar-winning movie from Argentina, Secret in their Eyes.

The opening film is The Secret in their Eyes by Juan Jose Campanella; it is a unique story centering around a rape-and murder case which is re-visited 25 years after it was committed. It revives old events, feelings, memories. It also brings to a close to the murder case, in a shock ending.

The second film is from Bangladesh. Under Construction, by Rubaiyat Hossaine, is a woman-centric film, where apart from the characters being mostly women, the crew members were also female, as the Director strongly believes in the strength of woman-power. The film delineates woman-power through the character of Roya, who tries to break out of stereotypes, both in her personal life as a middle-class housewife and in her professional life as a stage actress.

Following Under Construction, is Mindfulness and Murder by Thai-Irish filmmaker Tom Waller. Not only will the film be screened, by there will be a Q & A session following the screening with the Director, as well as Lead Actor, Vithaya Pansringarm. Based on the ‘Father Ananda Mystery’ novels by noted Bangkok-based American author Nick Wilgus, the movie is a mixture of a crime thriller and religious drama.

As the closing film, The Bit Player (Ekstra) by well-known Jeffrey Jeturian will be screened, also followed by a Q & A with the Director after the screening. This is a memorable movie from the Philippines, about the role of a ‘bit player’, the lowest category of artistes in a film-unit, who is willing to say or do anything just to get a ‘bit’ role in a film. It is a funny, moving, thought-provoking story that balances between an energetic comedy and a moving drama.
