Film Screening: Partners in Crime with Director Paromita Vohra

Partners in Crime (2011) travels to various parts of India to explore the grey horizons of copyright and culture during times when technology is changing the contours of the market. Metal heads who market their own music, folklorists who turn tribal aphorisms into short stories, music archivists who hoard and share everything they can get their hands on, anti-piracy fanatics who think piracy funds terrorism, a smooth talking DVD street salesman who outlines the efficiency of the illegal market, media moguls, lobbyists, monetizers, downloaders, uploaders, the biggest hit song of 2010 and the small time nautanki singer whose song it was inspired by – these places and people throng the world’s bazaar in which the film is set.

Q&A moderated by Lalitha Gopalan, Associate Professor, Department of Radio-Television-Film
