Summary:Six documentaries: Certified universal: An impressionistic sketch of "the public" as created by our cinema and its relationship with cinema itself. Do Rafique: Rafeeq meets Rafique Bagdadi, an extraordinary living archive of the city and its cinema, and explores the cinema city through him. Have you dreamt: A cinema theatre in a suburb of cinema city, is pulled down. Three women, who live in that suburb, reflect on their various relationships with that fantasy of a film in a darkened theatre. Was it ever theirs? Dhananjay Kulkarni's "Chandragupt": A journey of migrants to the dream city through the tract of filmi aspiration. Sin city: : The Film deals with the cityscape of crime and its representation in cinema. It reverberates with Bombay cinema's sounds of crime, its grandiloquent echo effects, percussion and music. The young men in a working class neighbourhood, their silences, their pleasure, their aspirations, are playfully pitted against this expressive sound track, creating irony and resonance around the sense of crime. Dark room: The city as a dark room creates many chemical reactions through its agitation and development of emulsions.
