West Heavens is an initiative for fostering ties between India and China through collaborations in art and social thought. In 2010, West Heavens (http://westheavens.net/en/) presented a major art exhibition alongside a series of intellectual forums, as the first step of a series of cultural engagements between China and India (historically referred to as the West Heavens in China). Both the Art Exhibition and India-China Summit on Social Thought were highly acclaimed by both the public and experts.
“You Don't Belong: Pasts and Futures of Indian Cinema” is the upcoming project for 2011. A season of films plus forums on film theory and social thought, showcasing a full range of recent Indian cinema, specially selected and assembled to make an argument about the moving image in India. The selection includes feature-length fiction films, documentaries and experimental video. For this occasion we are also publishing a Reader that includes newly translated writings selected from 30 years of writing on Indian cinema.
The film season opens on Friday, November 25th at the Iberia Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing. Over 30 independent films and a series of forums on film and social thought titled "India-China Dialogue on Film and Social Thought" will take place at: The Iberia Center, the Beijing Film Academy, and Ullens Center for Contemporary Art. Screenings in Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Kunming will follow.
