Watch Globally Acclaimed Movies this Weekend @ Conflictorium

Cinema is an excellent form of art that can depict things, in subtle as well as harsh ways, as seen in the eyes of the makers! Given that our society is faced with a number of issues that belong to the society itself, some people decide to get into the matter and clean it themselves by spreading awareness in ways that not just entertains but leaves behind a thought to integrate the message in their lives. Here is one such collaboration called the CINEMA GHAR which is a film screening initiative by Conflictorium and Drishti that's happening today and tomorrow at Conflictorium.

Although, they do not wish to focus on mainstream cinema, and want to only bring into light those films, that rise behind curtains of film festivals and not multiplexes. 

Conflictorium is a museum situated in Mirzapur, old Ahmedabad, is a building that absorbs art and culture to depict these social messages, and emit the same , to be absorbed by viewers' mind and soul! These screenings are moderated by eminent people of various backgrounds and the movies are curated by Mr. Debarun Dutta of Drishti with support from team Conflictorium. He is also joined with the partner  Radio Nazariya 108.7 FM, a station that tunes in with the same cause.
