Watch Half Moon Files, a documentary at Everest Cinemas (Vikalp Event)

Screening of “The Halfmoon Files” by Phillip Scheffner, a documentary about the time after World War I, when Indian soldiers fighting for the British were taken captive by the Germans and kept in Half-Moon, a prison camp near Berlin.

At Doc@Everest, organised by Vikalp, Bengaluru.


About : The HalfMoon Files (89 min.), Germany

The film is about the time after World War I, when Indian soldiers fighting for the British were taken captive by the Germans and kept in Half-Moon, a prison camp near Berlin. The Germans subjected them to biological experiments, and also recorded their voices. Ninety years later, the director came across the audiotape of a colonial Indian POW called Mall Singh, who spoke about his village and how he hoped to go back some day.

In his experiment search, Scheffner follows the traces of these voices to the origin of their recording. Like a memory game which remains incomplete right until the end, he uncovers pictures and sounds that revive the ghosts of the past.

    someone asked me a question - so here are the answers. Even if there are 3 RSVPs the screening WILL happen, because I am only promoting this event, it is being organized by VIKALP. look up everest on the map (I dont know how far it is from the Mukunda Theatre) it is close to the frazer town police station, under the bridge. The screening is free - and it starts at 7 pm sharp, go ahead of time and they will give you a delegate pass. enjoy the screening
