Mumbai, May 7 (IANS) In order to commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of Nobel laureate Rabindra Nath Tagore, Enlighten Film Society will organise a film festival based on his text in Mumbai in August -- but before that two films will be screened in May as a beginning.

'We will celebrate Tagore's birth anniversary by curating two films based on his texts in May, followed by a full-fledged festival in August,' Enlighten Film Society founder chairman Pranav Ashar told IANS.

'The films playing in May are Bimal Roy's 'Kabuliwala' (1958) directed by Hemen Gupta, and Kumar Shahani's 'Char Adhyay' (1997). In August, we will provide a more detailed look at Tagore by including works by masters like Satyajit Ray and Tapan Sinha and contemporary artists like Rituparno Ghosh and Suman Mukhopadhyay,' he added.

'Kabuliwala' will be screened May 20 at the Godrej Theatre in NCPA here and 'Char Adhyay' May 27 at the Little Theatre, also at NCPA.

'Enlighten decided to curate this festival both as an ode to Tagore, his literature, as well as his economic policies which create a politics that leads to the ethics of film production as well as literary adaptation,' said Ashar.
