The mystic masseur by Ismail Merchant( Visual )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set amidst the large and prosperous Indian community in mid-20th century Trinidad, [the film] is a magical, bittersweet fable about Ganesh (Aasif Mandvi), a young, aspiring author whose unexpected talents as a healer bring him local fame and enable him to realize his ambitions as a writer. But he also realizes his limitations when his reputation as the legendary 'mystic masseur' propels him to national renown and draws him far from his roots and his true self."--Container
The courtesans of Bombay( Visual )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... Pavan Pool [is] the enclosed area of Bombay where the city's singing and dancing courtesans ply their trade. It presents a portrait of a unique location both exotic and tawdry : crammed tenements housing thousands of men playing up to the camera as they seek out forbidden pleasures--and the courtesans themselves, who appear more as entertainers than sex workers. It shows how young girls are groomed in the arts of singing, dancing and, by inference, seduction. Neither sensationalist or prurient, the film is about a tradition with a special place in Indian society : the entertainment of paying customers--always men--by songstresses and dancers who perform in the classical Hindustani styles of the ancient 'nautch' girls, India's version of the Japanese geisha"--Container

1 edition published in 1993 in Undetermined and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neun Frauen indischer Abstammung machen einen Ausflug ins englische Seebad Blackpool; der Alltag, dem sie entfliehen wollten, holt sie aber auf vielschichtige Weise ein. Die von Konflikten belastete Reise setzt gruppendynamische Prozesse in Gang, die zu ein wenig Selbsterkenntnis und solidarischem Handeln führen. Ein Film, dessen Grundthema der alltägliche Rassismus ist; er stellt das Bewahren von Traditionen in Frage und zeigt die Grenzen der Toleranz auf. Trotz kleiner Mängel ein wichtiger, ehrlicher und bewegender Erstlingsfilm. (Preis der Ökumenischen Jury in Locarno 1993, Kinotip der katholischen Filmkritik) (Quelle: Lexicon des internationalen Films 1998, CD-ROM)
