Recorder: The Marion Stroke Project.A film by Matt Wolf.An unconventional timeline to bring Marion’s story to life, and to show history unfolding. Date: 17th October, 2020Time: 7:00 pm – Doors Open 6:30Duration: 1:30Age Limit: PG 15 Recorder: The Marion Stroke Project is a documentary on a Communist radical who became fabulously wealthy later in life, Marion Stokes secretly recorded American television 24 hours a day for 30 years from 1975 until her death in 2012. For Marion, taping was a form of activism to seek the truth and she believed that a comprehensive archive of the media would one day be invaluable. Her visionary and maddening project nearly tore her family apart, but now her 70,000 VHS tapes are being digitized for future generations.Matt Wolf says that the moment he read about Marion’s 70,000 tapes he imagined an endless collage of fuzzy clips—from tragic and triumphant, to historic and mundane—images that show the texture of our times. As a filmmaker, I’m known for using archival footage in unconventional and cinematic ways.He says that he likes to make old things feel new by using found images and stories in unexpected contexts. REVIEWS:“Outstanding... An information revolutionary, Stokes, despite her decades of isolation, touched the nerve center of the times.” - Best Films of 2019, New Yorker“Matt Wolf’s remarkable Recorder uses Stokes’ recording obsession as a way to explore both Stokes herself and the world she literally committed to video tape. The results are fascinating, weird, and often quite moving.” - Indiewire Post screening discussion with Kevin Jones.New York-born and Paris-bred, Kevin has lived in the Middle East for the past fourteen years, serving as UAE Desk Editor for the magazine ArtAsiaPacific, while contributing criticism both internationally (The Art Newspaper, Artforum, ArtReview and FlashArt International) and regionally.

Colors Live presents Laughter Nights continues its comeback of sold out events with Gaurav Kapoor – the beloved Delhi comic bringing the best of the current Indian comedy scene.A journalist by qualification, Gaurav Kapoor is another by-product of the famous Bollywood Kapoor family. Just kidding. The comedian is a sweet Delhi boy who does what he is expected to – hold a respectable job (he has one in retail) and make people laugh when needed (his secret profession). His razor sharp wit and candid humor lead him to win almost every open-mic he has ever participated in (yes, he is that good), including the Big Mic, Canvas Laugh Club, Chalta Hai and Buzz Off. So good that he opened for the world famous comic Russell Brand on his Indian tour. His favorite topics to talk about on stage are Jaat culture, people who buy Royal Enfields and poverty (mostly his own), a variety that makes the Indian audiences fall in love with him. And with his recent spelling change (Kapur to Kapoor), he has got all the validation he needs, and is ready to take over the world..Show timings:Show 1 - Doors: 5:30 pm Show: 6:00 pm till 7:30 pmShow 2 - Doors: 8:30 pm Show: 9:00 pm till 10:30 pmThe event is held following all safety and social distancing guidelines.

Citizen Jane: Battle for the City;A film by Matt Tyrnauer. A charismatic and yet uproarious film hitting the screens at The Theatre, Mall of the Emirates. Date: 24th October, 2020Time: 7:00pm – Doors Open 6:30Duration: 1:30PG 15 Synopsis: Citizen Jane: Battle for the City: is a story about our global urban future, in which nearly three-fourths of the world’s population will live in cities by the end of this century. It’s also a story about America’s recent urban past, in which bureaucratic, “top down” approaches to building cities have dramatically clashed with grassroots, “bottom up” approaches. The film brings us back mid-century, on the eve of the battles for the heart and soul of American cities, about to be routed by cataclysmically destructive Urban Renewal and highway projects.Matt Tyrnauer says, “Jacobs, whose centenary will be celebrated on May 4, is something of a spiritual soul mate to Sanders. The parallels between their underlying ideologies are striking. And as Sanders’s popularity and fame continues to skyrocket, it’s time to give his fellow New Yorker, Jacobs, her due. Jacobs’s fight for Washington Square Park—and for the people’s right to the city—is a story I tell in Citizen Jane (which is produced by one of New York’s newer grassroots activists, High Line co-founder Robert Hammond)”. REVIEW:“Jane Jacobs fought against Robert Moses’ plans to develop Lower Manhattan. This documentary revisits their legendary feud.” - New Yorker Post screening discussion with Alamira Reem Al Hasimi.Alamira Reem Al Hashimi (BA Arch,; MPL; PhD) is an urbanist, architect and historian.

Laughter Nights is so excited to bring back one of the biggest comedians in India – Kunal Kamra.
