Oscar Shortlisted Konkani Film Screening
At 5:30 PM, Sunday, 6th October, Museum of Goa will host the film Nachom-ia Kumpasar (2014), directed by Bardroy Barretto, as part of its weekly MOG SUNDAYS series. The producer of the film, Miguel Falcao, will attend the screening and will be available for discussion afterwards.
This film is loosely based on the lives of legendary Konkani singers Lorna Cordeiro and Chris Perry and highlights a golden era of Goan music. Told through 20 hit Konkani songs, Nachom-ia Kumpasar maps the tragic romance of its two leading characters, set in the world of 60’s jazz in India. Famous Konkani oldies were rerecorded for this film.
With an award winning performance by Palomi Ghosh as Lorna, this film has bagged awards at international film festivals for its director, cinematography, acting and, most notably, music. To add to this, Nachom-ia Kumpasar was shortlisted for an Oscar nomination for best original score. The film is dedicated to the unsung musicians of 60’s Goa.
MOG SUNDAYS is a weekly event at the Museum of Goa where the Museum invites some of the brightest minds from India and the world to the Museum to talk about areas that they are experts in, and to share ideas that are closest to their hearts. Next week, on Sunday, 13 Oct, MOG hosts Joanna Pyres, who will talk about What Strategies Can Support Organisations to Collaborate For the SDGs? at 11:30 AM.
