Indian Film To Be Screened At Ucla

December 12, 1985|KEVIN THOMAS

Among this weekend's offerings in UCLA's Indian Cinema retrospective is Manmohan Mahapatra's "Neeraba Jhada" ("The Silent Storm"), a beautiful, grueling film about a peasant's brave stand against a greedy landlord's determination to grab the peasant's holdings, the last bit of property in the region not in his possession.

This is as uncompromising a film imaginable about a people mired in virtual slavery, upheld by ignorance, superstition and tradition, yet it also is a tribute to humanity's strength to endure and even to hope. Show times: Saturday at 8 p.m. following "Maya Miraga," Sunday at 2 p.m. Information: (213) 825-2581, 825-2953.
