Partners in Crime, a film directed by Paromita Vohra will be screened at 6.30pm on Friday, September 9, 2011 at the Smriti Nandan Cultural Centre, 15/3 Palace Road. The Director will be present at the screening.
Synopsis: Who owns a song – the person who made it or the person who paid for it? Is piracy organized crime or class struggle? Are alternative artists who want to hold rights over their art and go it alone in the market, visionaries or nutcases? Is the fine line between plagiarism and inspiration a cop-out or a whole other way of looking at the fluid nature of authorship? When more than three fourths of those with an internet connection download all sorts of material for free, are they living out a brand new cultural freedom – or are they criminals? Full of wicked irony, great music and thorny questions Partners in Crime explores the grey horizons of copyright and culture in times when technology is changing the contours of the market.
